The MBL Group is a family-owned company established in Denmark in 1988 by Ingelise and Mogens Lauritsen. Mogens was working as a managing engineer for a large bus company yet with a significant entrepreneurial drive.
When he, on a business trip to Finland, came across a special rubber material which could be used for puncture proof tyres, he decided to bring some samples back to Denmark. Ingelise, who at that time worked as a nurse and having seen the troubles wheelchair users can get into with a flat tyre, said that “this is a product which can really make a difference for wheelchair users”. And so, the idea and wish to improve on wheelchair user’s life was the beginning of MBL.
Today, MBL is a leading supplier of wheelchair components and customer specified mobility solutions for the aged care and rehabilitation segments. We employ more than 1,400 employees and occupy more than 42.000 m2 of production facilities in Poland and China. The company have ISO 9001:2015 certification.
In MBL we stress the importance of creating close partnerships with our customers where flexibility and involvement are key words. This approach allows us to find the best and most profitable solution in order to satisfy the needs of our customers.
The majority of MBL is still owned by the Lauritsen family. In 2020 Invalda, a large investment fund from Lithuania, entered into partnership with the family.
The continuous development of our product range, being both the MBL standard line of products and our high performance OMOBIC line of products, is primarily driven by our close cooperation with wheelchair users and our valued customers.
Combined with extensive manufacturing know-how we ensure that quality products are made available to our customers at attractive prices whereby our reliable products can provide trust and make life easier for as many people as possible.
