    More than a few of them appear to have come from recent acquisitions or other related medical businesses. Permobil went through a relatively recent expansion and acquisition phase IIRC. None of them seem particularly new to the industry or their group's function. Glad to see Tom Borcherding on that list. He's been a meaningful contributor around here for years, starting back when he ran The Roho Group. Nice guy, very customer focused, and helpful to many CareCure members over the years.

    Thank you chaps, much appreciated. Just a shame it doesn't include an email address. I suppose I could just put his name before Permobil@.com or Permobil@com se and see what happens

    Maybe call Permobil and ask?

    Yeah, maybe worth a try. Not sure if they would divulge information like that.
    I was watching a program a few years ago and someone said if you ever want to get in touch with the CEO of a company but don't know the email address then just try different email addresses that include CEO and the name of the person. If you think about it, he must have his own email address. Whether he uses the brand's name in his own email address is anyone's guess.

    Permobil bought out Roho. Tom still is over the Roho division of Permobil, as far as I know.

    If you ever find them tell them you know another person with a very comfortable coat rack called an F3!
    It's like MCAS without the tragic deaths. Am happy to provide details if you ever get a reply.

    Worst chair I've owned. Nothing good to say about a product that is unreliable and next to impossible to maintain. And a manufacturer who will not sell you a part...after they gouged insurance for $32,000. That's the final straw. I just need to remember the Purpose of a business is...to make a profit!

    So far my F3 has worked well (except for programming which I had to do myself). Only 6 months, 57 miles, so I'm still in the shake down phase.
    I've read many complaints on many websites. I read of Gen 1 and Gen 2 F3's. Not sure what the difference is, if any, or if there actually is a Gen 2.
    Most of the negatives were in the first few years after the F3 first came out (Gen 1 ?)
    We can only hope that the personnel changes at the top of Permobil will be to our advantage.
    They are a "corporation" so -----------.
