BLOG POST NO 1. An outside view into LITH-TECH
Founded in 2017, a time when Folding Electric Wheelchairs and Lithium Battery products were only really just getting established and starting to make their mark in the UK. LITH-TECH saw a huge opportunity quite early on in now what is the fastest growing area in modern day mobility which is a Lightweight Electric Folding Wheelchairs that you can use everyday and take everywhere with you essentially making a standard bulky wheelchair completely obsolete.
As a company we originally started off as a homed based business, keeping all stock in a unit and operating out of a home based office.
We started out with just two models which over the months and years turned into eight, and in the last six months we made the call to whittle our range down to 6 chairs that serve different types of users so as not to give our customers too much choice which ultimately just ends up confusing them instead.
We moved into our big premises in early 2019, which has been a game changer for our company meaning we can operate every part of the business from one central location which is based in a business park in Farnham Town Centre.
We can now hold huge amounts of stock of upto 140 wheelchairs (one of the largest stockist in the whole UK).
As well as being a big online retailer which is our bread and butter we also have customers from all over England, Scotland, Wales and even Ireland visiting our showroom on a daily bases to see our chairs or do demonstrations with us (which is strictly by appointment only as the slots get booked up very quickly).
In November 2019 we appointment a new Assistant Manager with a background in Business Management and Marketing which will help will us achieve our first big milestone of 7 figures in annual sales in 2020 which we will narrowly miss this year.
LITH-TECH’s plans for going into the New Year are to continue to grow our online presence, social media platforms and to create a new Youtube channel where we will be posting weekly videos, redoing our currently chair demonstration videos and creating lots of useful information and content for the user.
We will create a blog post every Monday and Thursday moving forward on anything from; what our company is upto, to what’s going on in the industry, to different accessories to help our customers, tricks of the trade when it comes to operating/folding/lifting our products and even discuss Lithium Batteries and the new laws and regulations regarding them.
Anyway, that will be all for now
