Dear R Healthcare customer,
R Healthcare Business Update
I am writing to keep you informed of progress following my last letter in October.
R Healthcare have been awarded ‘Preferred Bidder’ status for the acquisition of the Remploy Healthcare business. The process has continued and it is now anticipated that the acquisition process in relation to both the Orthotics and Mobility businesses will be concluded by the end of the year.
R Healthcare intends to base orthotic operations on the current Chesterfield site. The mobility distribution operation will be undertaken in Scotland by Haven Products in their site at Hillington, Glasgow.
R Healthcare will invest in the healthcare business and this will create sustainable employment opportunities for people with complex barriers to work. The mobility service will be managed on behalf of R Link by Haven Products, a social enterprise business that specialises in providing assembly and distribution services to blue chip customers with the assistance of people with complex barriers to work. The measures we are taking are aimed at improving efficiency and our delivery performance for customers.
We appreciate the uncertainty of the last 12 months has been a difficult period for all and I am pleased to say we are now planning confidently for the future. As a valued R Healthcare customer we would like to assure you that we aim to make the transfer from Remploy as seamless as possible. We look forward to launching new products and seeking new opportunities for us to work together.
Thank you in anticipation of your ongoing support.
Chairman of R Link Limited t/a R Healthcare
