North America is about to see a demographic shift unlike any in previous history.
The population of North America is reaching retirement age in the next few years at unprecedented levels. One of the unfortunate consequences of this trend is the fact that, as we age, many of us suffer mobility deficiencies.
Silver Cross recognized this opportunity in 1993 and began to develop a network of franchise business locations, focused on delivering a lower cost alternative for accessibility and mobility equipment.
The franchised business model is low overhead, few employees, a small industrial unit coupled with a highly motivated franchisee.
The Silver Cross service includes recycled and new home accessibility lifts along with a repurchase plan. Accessibility products include stair lifts, porch lifts, home elevators, dumbwaiters, automatic door openers, ceiling and scooter lifts.
Home elevators are gaining interest from custom home builders who are including them as the next appliance in their home designs. Mobility products include scooters, wheelchairs, walkers and other related products. Baby boomers who are building their last custom home are including home elevators in their design.
Silver Cross was founded by Bob Harvey out of Toronto, Canada in 1993. He recognized the need for a lower cost alternative in the market place. His vision was to expand this unique franchise across North America. Today, there are eight Silver Cross franchises in Ontario and over hundred affiliates covering 80% of North America and England.
In the next decade, as the baby boomers reach their retirement years, the home accessibility market is going to grow at unprecedented levels.
