After 41 years, it time for me to turn the reins over to new owners. Effective October 31st, 2019, Ed and Don Shelpman are the new owners of Keystone Coach Works, Inc. These two key employees have been the heart of the business for over three decades, with the same core values of mine. A customer comes, and everything will work out.
I grew up in the specialty transportation business. Seeing a need for wheelchair accessible vans is what inspired me to start Keystone Coach Works in 1978. Back then, we were using wooden platforms to move wheelchairs in and out of vans. Knowing there had to be a better way; we looked for a wheelchair lift supplier. After researching the few that were in business back then we selected Safe-A-Step Manufacture, which later became Braun Corporation. I call this period the “Wild West” days of the mobility industries; a lot of products have come and gone since then. The improvements have been incredible.
I always felt that everybody involved with Keystone Coach Works are part of our family business, and are part of a team who truly understands the people and organizations we collectively serve. I'm very proud of all of our employees who have been here for decades; it says a lot when customers and employees stick with us. It is so fulfilling to watch my staff and customers improve their quality of life. Along with our team members, I also enjoy volunteering for local organizations.
