Lots of free prizes were given away via our “Lucky Lollies” competition at the Clark & Partners stall.

Our winners walked away with a luxury hamper and a voucher for afternoon tea at the Royal Victoria Holiday Inn Hotel.Golden Years Roadshow

Geberit Aquaclean 8000 Shower Toilet

Aquaclean at Clark & Partners

Here at Clark & Partners, we always support any product which can provide help and life-changing improvement in mobility. Geberit’s Aquaclean 8000 Shower Toilet does exactly that. It has a modern design which combines the functions of a toilet and a bidet to ensure improved hygiene.

The Aquaclean 8000 has a comfortable seat and is built for lasting quality. At the touch of a button, you can be washed clean by an oscillating spray of warm water. It has different water spray pressures so you can adjust it to suit your preferences. It’s also very hygienic – the shower nozzle is cleaned with fresh water before and after every use.

The control panel is simple to use and easily accessible. The Aquaclean 8000 has a dirt-repellent ceramic, meaning it’s easy to clean and maintain. The soft-close seat and lid has sound dampeners so it’s discreet and doesn’t make a noise.

There’s no need for modifications, as it has one water connection for both the toilet and shower functions. This is hidden behind the design panel. Even on standby, there’s a minimal amount of energy used due to its energy-saving function. It has clever user identification so as soon as you approach the toilet, the water starts to heat up.

We have an Aquaclean 8000 Shower Toilet on display at our Head Office, Orgreave Way. It is featured in our specially adapted bathroom unit which demonstrates the type of work we carry out.  If this sounds like something which could benefit you or someone you know, then why not come and see one?

We always welcome visitors and have experts on hand to demonstrate how our products work so you can try them out in our showroom. We look forward to your visit!

If you have a query about the Aquaclean 8000 Shower Toilet or any of our products, our Web Sales team are always happy to answer your questions. Call us on 0114 229 33 74 or email websales@clarkandpartners.co.uk

Clark & Partners, proud exhibitors at the OT Show, NEC Birmingham!

On the 26th and 27th November 2013, our Sales Manager, Louise Pearson attended the OT Show, accompanied by our Sales Supervisor, Debbie Chapman. The day was a huge success for both the OT Show and Clark & Partners, and our Traditional Sweet stand proved to be very popular with many OT’s and other exhibitors!

The OT Show is new for 2013, and is the only event that is completely free, offering advice and lectures to OT’s across the region. Throughout the two days, the OT’s could choose which seminars they attended and were welcomed to speak to many exhibitors including Louise and Debbie from Clark & Partners.

Louise Pearson, Sales Manager quotes: “The show was a great success, feedback from OT’s suggested everyone felt it was the best event they had attended and would definitely visit next year. Having an old fashioned sweet shop stand attracted a lot of visitors and gave many OT’s the sugar rush they needed to get through the day!
We look forward to building relationships with many of the people we were fortunate to meet on the day, and we have already booked our stand for next year.”

Debbie Chapman, Sales Supervisor quotes: “I was amazed at the amount of people who attended the show and the number of which visited our stand, our sweet stand attracted a lot of attention, nothing like some dolly mixtures to get you through the day! It was great to meet you all, we hope you enjoyed the event and we look forward to seeing you next year”

We would like to thank the OT’s who took their time to talk with us, and the OT Show for giving us the opportunity to attend. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!

Another Prize Giveaway

Last week, we announced the winner of our competition to win a lightweight transportation chair. On 07/11/2013, our Operational Retail Manager, Mark Shaw and one of our web sales team, Samantha Rodgers visited our winner, Irene Warburton to present her with her fantastic prize. Mrs Warburton was one of many who entered our competition by simply signing up to our news letter and was over the moon with her new wheelchair. After Mark and Samantha provided a short demonstration on how to use the chair, Mrs Warburton told Mark and Samantha , “I entered the competition for my mum, as although she is able to walk, she sometimes finds it a struggle and would benefit from something that she can be transported on for short periods of time. This chair is great, it’s easy to put up and is incredibly lightweight. I have had a look at your catalogue with my mum, and it’s just amazing what products are out there and available for those who find certain things in everyday life a struggle.”

We are sure that the transportation chair will provide Mrs Warburton and her mum with many pleasurable trips and will help out for many years to come.

If you would like any information on any of our products or to request a catalogue, please call us on 0114 229 33 74.

At Clark and Partners, customer service comes first, and it is always nice to hear how happy one of our customers is with their products and the service from our professional staff members.

Last week, we received a call from a customer who had recently dealt with one of our Wheelchair and Seating Specialist, Andy Coates. Mrs Kelp’s daughter, Ginnett, rang our head office and spoke to a member of our friendly sales team, and passed on a great message regarding the customer service she received from Andy, who visited her property on several occasions to help in finding her the perfect wheelchair for her needs.

Ginnett Kelp quoted “The service we received from Andy was exceptional and he really is an asset to your team! Me and my mum went out shopping for the first time in a long time thanks to Andy and her new wheelchair and we had a really good day.”

We are very happy that Mrs Kelp is happy with her wheelchair and wish her and her daughter many enjoyable day trips out in it.
