About Us

The world’s #1 medical PVC manufacturer with over 25 years of excellence.

Company History

Since our inception in 1988, Duralife has set the standard in medical PVC furniture. We were originally founded by two US veterans, Danial Day and Tim Ludgate, in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, with a goal to preserve American manufacturing.

Our US made product line includes: shower chairs, utility carts, bath chairs, reclining chairs, laundry hampers, bariatric chairs, commodes and our Duraglide transfer systems.

Duralife changed ownership in 2016, with all operations moved to Philadelphia, where we continue our original standard for quality, while still adhering to our fundamental belief in American manufacturing. We recognize over thirty years of business is a privilege and thank our customers for their continued support as we continue our growth.
