The Molten Rock Foundation has been forced to cease as a result of the liquidation of Molten Rock Equipment Ltd in November 2016.
The Molten Rock Foundation was established to promote access to the countryside and other non paved areas for all persons with ambulatory disabilities through access to specialist equipment.
The specialist all-terrain mobility product previously manufactured by Molten Rock Equipment Ltd is now in production with Equal Adventure Developments.
Boma The Early Years
Molten Rock was founded by Chris Swift, who became tetraplegic in 1995 following a neurological illness. As a qualified engineer with a mission to get back outdoors with no limits, Chris and his friend Jon Anders developed the Boma Off Road Wheelchair. Thanks to valuable customer feedback the product range then grew to include the Joystick Boma and Head/Chin controlled Boma. However, in 2016, Equal Adventure was saddened to learn that Molten Rock Equipment Limited had gone into liquidation. Equal Adventure set about inquiring if there was anything that could be done to ensure the great Boma off road all terrain powered wheelchair might continue to be available.
Boma and Equal Adventure
Award winning design engineer and founder of Equal Adventure, Suresh Paul PhD, said, “We are very pleased and excited to announce that Equal Adventure Developments Ltd has bought the rights to continue manufacturing, servicing and selling Boma all terrain powered wheelchairs. Equal Adventure (www.equaladventure.org) can now take the Boma on a new adventure. We look forward to manufacturing the Boma in Scotland and supporting the development of more production jobs for wounded, injured and sick Service veterans at Equal Adventure’s premises in Scotland.”
Equal Adventure is a multi faceted organisation which inspires and resources outdoor adventure, sport and active lifestyles with disabled people from its base in Grantown-on-Spey. The dedicated workshops create equipment from scratch using a wide range of materials and technologies. Using the most up-to-date CAD technologies thanks to our partners at TMS CAD Centre, and innovative management tools thanks to Podio, our design, manufacturing and training has a positive impact on many individuals, from the people we employ through to the disabled people we seek to serve.
The Boma off road all terrain powered wheelchair complements the equipment already manufactured and sold by Equal Adventure. Equal Adventure’s skill and experience in designing, creating, manufacturing and selling safe effective solutions means that we are able to manufacture the Boma off road all terrain powered wheelchair to the highest standards, while offering quality after sales and servicing opportunities throughout the UK and abroad.
We look forward to working with existing and prospective Boma customers.
