History and background

Helmut Schmicking founded the firm. In 1989 his two children Thomas and Andrea joined him. It was a small family firm that grew with Thomas’ experience, understanding, skill and knowledge of wheelchairs and disability sports.

The Factory is situated in Holzwickede, just by Dortmund Airport. There are 29 non-disabled (ABs) and disabled employees. In the mid 1990s Thomas built a wheelchair friendly factory with nine disabled parking bays, one meter wide doors, under floor heating, several accessible toilets, an accessible shower room and guest room.

The team includes welders, fine engineers, wheel builders, bike and wheelchair assemblers, upholsterers and designers. Of course we also have bookkeeping, purchasing, shipping, packing, and product control departments.

The company is well known throughout Europe for the quality, lightness, strength and reliability of its products.
