Mobility Networks Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) is the latest worldwide branch to be set up by this multi-national group.

It comes ahead of new ANZ legislation that stipulates all coaches and buses must be wheelchair accessible.

The Mobility Networks Group provides a ‘one-stop-shop’ service for vehicle convertors, body builders, fleet operators and domestic drivers looking for the best access products from around the world.

Led by CEO Mike Simmonds, Mobility Networks provides access solutions from leading international manufacturers whilst offering regionalised support and servicing.

Existing and potential customers in ANZ can now benefit from this combined advantage with the opening of a new office by Stuart Hall, Managing Director, Mobility Networks ANZ.

Originally employed by UK vehicle lift manufacturer Passenger Lift Services, he has extensive knowledge of wheelchair passenger accessibility.

He will be leading a team with this engineering and operational expertise so that ANZ customers can benefit from a quality service and exceptionally reliable products.

PLS designs, manufactures and installs a vast variety of bus, coach and mini-bus wheelchair lifts, however its flagship Coach Front Entrance Cassette Lift, will make a significant impact on the ANZ market.

Mobility Networks now also supplies vehicle lifts manufactured by Caroil following its recent acquisition of this Italian lift specialist.

Caroil has been remodeled and restructured to enhance product and service quality to the ANZ market.

“Existing Caroil customers can now rest assured that these cost-effective vehicle inboard and cassette lifts will deliver world-class performance – synonymous with all Mobility Networks products,” says CEO Mike Simmonds.
