NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 11, 2020) —National Seating & Mobility (NSM), the leading provider of complex rehabilitation technology (CRT), mobility and accessibility solutions in North America, is further expanding the company’s presence in the Pacific Northwest with the acquisition of AARO Medical Supplies, headquartered in Aberdeen, Washington. The acquisition also includes a satellite location in the metro Seattle area.


“This acquisition allows NSM to serve more individuals in Washington who rely on mobility equipment and accessibility solutions for independence,” said Bill Mixon, NSM CEO. “We are proud to welcome the AARO Medical Supplies team to the NSM family and look forward to being a part of this community.”
