Tomcat SNI announces UK partnership Van Raam

Tomcat SNI has agreed a UK-wide partnership with Dutch cycle specialists Van Raam.

Van Raam provides single-user machines and carer supported products such as wheelchair bikes and transporters, and ‘side by side’ trikes.

Tomcat has its own showroom in Gloucestershire, where some Tomcat and Van Raam products will be available to try six days a week.

The company also has repair facilities and technical expertise at its headquarters to deal with ‘aftercare’ service.

Bob Griffin, managing director and founder of Tomcat said: “We are very pleased to be partnering with Van Raam whom we have known for many years, and whose standards in quality, ethics and customer care, mirror our own.

“Though our companies both service the same sector, our products are very different, therefore this partnership will enable us to offer our many customers – from the very young through to senior citizens and multi-user locations – a complete spectrum of products that will address every level of ability, difficulty and aspiration.

“This development will not only complete our broad portfolio, but it will also enable us to offer the very best solution and aftercare service to anyone who wants to take charge of their difficulties and become a part of the UK cycling revolution."

Ronald Ruesink, Van Raam commercial director, added: "Van Raam is very pleased with the cooperation with Tomcat.

“We believe that the culture and the way of doing business and innovation are very similar.

“Van Raam has also won a lot of (international) awards and prices regarding innovation, design and people management.

"We see a lot of countries in Europe with a high penetration of Van Raam special need bikes. We believe that Tomcat can help us to achieve this same penetration in the UK."
