SHOWING 5 OUT OF 5 PRODUCTS
R82, Inc. was started in 1987 by Janet and Kirk MacKenzie, and Carlisle and Norman Scott, to distribute an innovative product developed in Scotland for children who required postural assistance to sit properly. The product, appropriately called the Snug Seat, was immediately embraced by the U.S. medical community which opened our eyes to the lack of appropriate products for our kids. Our success allowed us to expand our focus to include developing and manufacturing new products to enable children with special needs to live a better and more inclusive life-style.
In 1996 Snug Seat became the North American distributor for R82 A/S, a Danish company with the same commitment to helping children. This alliance allowed R82 to gain a foothold in North America and provided Snug Seat access to products that had a reputation for design, function, and manufacturing excellence. The relationship was so successful that R82 acquired a controlling interest in Snug Seat in 1998 which they still maintain.
