About the employer

M.A.G. Orthotics are the manufacturers of traditionally handcrafted bespoke orthotic devices. We specialise in Lower Limb Orthoses, including adaption to patients footwear, and the accurate manufacture of simple insoles, total contact insoles, DAFO's and AFO's, etc. from casts, impressions and prescriptions. In addition, early 2009 we invested in a large CAD/CAM, which gives added benefits in the precise production of Polypropylene Hard Shells and EVA Insoles. We pride ourselves on quality craftsmanship; customer service, delivery and very competitive prices. Our production and delivery time generally is 7 days from order; however, most of our customers receive their finished items within 4-5 days. M.A.G. Orthotics recognises that most Orthotic and Associated Departments are probably happy with the service they are receiving from their current supplier(s), however, we believe that our products, services, delivery and pricing, would compete in all areas.
