Courage, Innovation and Knowledge of the Market 
Mr. Van Leeuwen


Escape Mobility Company has been in the business since 1987. The journey was started by the Managing Director, Herman Van Leeuwen. He introduced the products to evacuate people from the buildings in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. A handicapped person or a person with issues in the body can easily seat in the Spencer chair and he/she can be transported down to the staircase. Till that date, such kind of evacuation method was not introduced by anyone in those particular countries. At the time of the demonstration, many people got interested in this product. At that time the company name was 'Handelsmaatschappij H. van Leeuwen' and after that, the company name was changed to 'van Leeuwen Companies'. Under this name, the evacuation chairs were assembled and supplied. And finally, this name changed to 'Escape Mobility Company'. This change was needed to describe the actual purpose of the business. The company name creates a link between Escape products and Mobility products. Different types of Mobility products are built for continuous transportation of people and goods.

The Journey of 'a Leeuwen Evacuation Chair" to Escape-Chair®

The superior level of chairs was introduced by the company in the year 2003. The first few updated chairs were launched under the name ‘van Leeuwen evacuation chair’ and then the other models are introduced since 2006 under the name Escape-Chair®. The latest escape chairs are manufacture by keeping the safety requirement and customer needs in mind. All the products are developed properly and assembled in-house. The company offers five different types of Escape-Chair® models.

Evacuate Person in a Lying Position

Escape Mobility got success in the development of our first evacuation mattress at the end of 2006. If a person needs to be transported in the lying position from the building, then Evacuation Mattress is the perfect solution which is introduced by Escape-Mattress®. These types of mattresses are the best solution for spiral staircases. This is the most useful product for the care environment because here most of the patients are suffering from major problems.
