MobilityWorks will now have 68 consumer locations in 23 states
Richfield, OH (PRWEB) August 05, 2016
MobilityWorks®, the nation's largest retailer of wheelchair accessible vans, announced its second acquisition only two days apart with the purchase of Better Life Mobility Centers. MobilityWorks had recently announced the acquisition of Advanced Mobility Systems of Texas on Wednesday.
Headquartered in San Diego, CA, Better Life Mobility Centers was started in 2004 by Mo Abusham who was injured as a young man in a football-related accident. His experience led him to start the company and to live its motto "Life Without Limitation". Better Life has locations in San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside and Las Vegas, NV. The two companies have been friendly competitors in the Southern California area for many years.
“Better Life and MobilityWorks are very similar in how we go about finding the right solution for each individual and their families,” said Mo Abusham, President of Better Life Mobility Center. “Both our companies listen and care about their personal needs and that’s what’s important to our clients.”
The acquisition significantly adds to MobilityWorks' presence in the state of California, where they already had eight existing showrooms. Better Life Mobility’s Las Vegas location will be the company’s first in the state of Nevada. With these recent acquisitions, MobilityWorks will have 68 consumer locations in 23 states.
"The people at Better Life Mobility are extremely devoted toward making a difference in the lives of their clients," said Bill Koeblitz, President/CEO of MobilityWorks. "We’re very happy to have them on our team and helping more people."
In addition to selling new and used modified vans for wheelchair accessibility, MobilityWorks and Better Life Mobility Centers also provide rental vans and adaptive equipment such as hand controls, turning seats and scooter lifts. MobilityWorks also manufactures and sells a variety of commercial vehicles to business clients throughout the United States.
