Prime Engineering Celebrates 36th Anniversary

Prime Engineering, manufacturer of standing devices and gait trainers, celebrated its 36th anniversary in July.

In a news announcement, the California-based company remembered its entrepreneurial start in 1984.

President Mary Boegel said, “We have gone from our humble beginnings of rolling carts out onto the driveway each morning to have room in the one-car garage in order to make room to cut and weld frames. We were making one Granstand [stander] at a time and selling it out of the back of our van. We would use that money to make two more, and we have grown from there.”

Prime Engineering now has 36 employees, 40 sales reps nationwide, and worldwide distribution. The company currently offers 15 models and promises more launches are “on the way.”

Boegel added, “Input from doctors, therapists and end users has allowed us to create our line of personal and clinical standing devices as the most advanced in the market. Our innovative design features supply No Transfer-No Lift Technology, proper standing position, advanced adjustability and multi-functional frames that have been copied for concept, but never duplicated for function.

“We wake up each morning thankful to be here and continuing to bring our end users a better quality of life, and we look forward to many years to come.”
