EZ-ACCESS has acquired Worldwide Mobility, a longtime wheelchair and scooter lift manufacturer based in Mesa, Ariz.
In making the acquisition, EZ-ACCESS also announced it would be introducing a new line of external lifts to transport wheelchairs and scooters outside of automotive vehicles.
The new lift series is called HAULWAY, and it will officially be introduced at Medtrade in October in Atlanta.
The HAULWAY line, EZ-ACCESS said in a news announcement, will be “available in multiple sizes with an array of options. The lifts feature simple installation and operation, and they adjust to most vehicles and models of power chairs and scooters.”
To help accessibility dealers show off the new line, EZ-ACCESS added that display racks will be available for showrooms.
“Over the past 30 years, EZ-ACCESS has made every effort to offer our dealers the highest quality and most complete line of residential, portable, threshold and modular ramps,” said EZ-ACCESS CEO Don Everard. “With the introduction of the PASSPORT Vertical Platform Lift in 2014 and now the addition of the HAULWAY, we remain committed to offering our customers a complete line of products for all access solutions.”
Everard indicated the HAULWAY line is just the beginning of an expansion of EZ-ACCESS product lines, with the goal being to ultimately offer solutions to meet the entire range of consumers’ accessibility needs.
