We have some exciting news... we've opened an office in the Netherlands!
We are so excited to be expanding our presence in Europe! Since day one, our customers have been the no. 1 priority, and getting to spend time with them on WheelAir road trips and at shows like Naidex have been some of our favourite moments. Expanding to the Netherlands means that not only will we still be spending as much time as possible with customers in the UK, but with the new offices near Rotterdam, we will be able to spend time with our lovely customers around Europe.
“With sales increasing in Europe we thought that now is the time to branch out,” said Corien Staels, WheelAir Managing Director.
“We want to really take the time to fully support the business’ growth and to make it a commercial success. And the best way to do this is to open the Dutch subsidiary.”
“We will be maintaining a strong presence in the UK and remain fully focused on serving our existing loyal customers and new ones,” Ms Staels continued.
“It is a move which the board and team are all excited about!”
The 28-year-old entrepreneur formed the company in 2016 in Glasgow, UK, to provide effective temperature regulation solutions to overheating and over-sweating for wheelchair users.
Through active airflow, the WheelAir system allows for self regulation of wheelchair users’ body temperature through convection, conduction and evaporation heat loss.
Ms Staels said that WheelAir’s customers remain “the number one priority” and visiting them face-to-face across the UK and Europe has been one of her favourite parts of the job.
She continued: “Expanding to the Netherlands means that not only will we still be spending as much time as possible with customers in the UK, but with the new offices near Rotterdam, we will be able to spend time with our lovely customers around Europe.”
Since its introduction to the market in 2017, WheelAir systems have been sold internationally, providing life-changing results for people all over the world.
So where can you find us?
Our Netherlands offices are located in Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel, just outside of Rotterdam. We can also still be found in the UK, with offices located in Glasgow.
We are so excited about this next chapter for WheelAir. Our team is growing in both the UK and the Netherlands, and we can’t wait to update you on what’s to come!
