     Title: Winco Increases Weight Capacity on Most Popular Recliners

Winco increases Weight capacity to 350 pounds on several Clinical Recliner Models!

Ocala, FL. October 2011 - Winco Mfg., LLC is pleased to announce that we have increased standard weight capacities to 350 lbs. on several of our clinical recliners.  Chairs immediately impacted by these enhancements include the following top selling models:  6900 Elite Care Cliner, 6940 Elite Care Cliner with Swing-Away Arms and our contemporary style recliner, the 6700 Designer Care Cliner. 

Our standard weight capacities have met the general population requirements for many years; however, recently, we have seen a change in the marketplace. Customers have reported while standard chair sizes (width, depth and height of the seat) are suitable for them; the weight capacities did not always meet their needs.  Patients don’t necessarily need a physically larger size recliner, as much as they require a higher weight capacity.  This change allows customers to reduce their requirements for XL and Bariatric chairs; thus, saving them money and better matching their patients’ needs. 

“We heard the voice of the customer stating that they needed a standard width chair at a higher weight capacity” stated Jim Ankoviak CEO of Winco. He added: “Our goal has and will be to continue to listen to customer needs and give them the best products, great customer service and an outstanding value. “ 

Winco is always in pursuit of better solutions for today’s healthcare environment and believes in innovation driven by the needs and feedback of our customers and their patients. This is the first phase of enhancing Winco’s full line of recliners to meet new customer requirements. Patients will continue to receive all the features and unmatched comfort they expect from Winco in an even more durable and capable frame design.
