QualityStocks would like to highlight HASCO Medical, Inc., a publicly traded company. The company provides products and services that dramatically improve the quality of living for its customers. HASCO Medical now consists of Southern Medical and Mobility, Inc. and Certified Medical on the DME side and Ride-Away, Mobility Freedom, Wheelchair Vans of America, and Certified Auto on the Van Conversion/Rental side of the company.
In the company’s news today,
HASCO Medical announced it has acquired all of the outstanding capital stock of Ride-Away Handicap Equipment Corp., one of the nation’s largest providers of wheelchair vans, vehicle modifications, and more. The acquisition marks HASCO’s fourth acquisition in the last nine months.
Ride-Away’s product offerings are complementary to HASCO Medical’s goals for the future and are expected to generate significant annual sales.
"Ride-Away is a great fit for HASCO Medical's long-term consolidation strategy," Hal Compton, Jr., CEO of HASCO Medical stated in the press release. "With the acquisition of Ride-Away, HASCO will now have over $70 million in annual sales. HASCO will continue looking to grow organically or through more acquisitions in the future. We look forward to continuing Ride-Away's commitment and impeccable service they provide to their customers."
Ride-Away was launched in 1986 when the company began modifying wheelchair vans for people with disabilities. The company quickly emerged as a strong leader of the vehicle modification industry, becoming a pioneer in the vehicle modification industry. Ride-Away has an inventory of more than 350 accessible vehicles throughout its 11 East Cost locations, including vehicles from manufacturers such as Braun and Viewpoint.
Nick Gutwein, president of the Braun Corp., a leading manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles, noted his company’s business relationship with Ride-Away.
"The Braun Corporation has enjoyed a very successful, longstanding relationship with Ride-Away," Gutwein stated. "We are confident that HASCO will build upon Ride-Away's success and continue to provide unmatched transportation solutions for people with disabilities."
Mark Lore, founder and president of Ride-Away, will stay on board to run the company.
