Twenty years ago, an entrepreneurial CPA with a background in healthcare and a passion for cars purchased a small company called New Era Transportation (now MobilityWorks®). With only one location in Akron, Ohio, New Era Transportation modified vehicles for transporting elderly and people in wheelchairs. Their largest customer was America’s Body Company. When America’s Body Company was sold, Bill Koeblitz jumped at the chance to capture their greatest asset, Taylor Clark, the Director of Sales and Marketing, who built his career in the Detroit automotive industry.
After watching children at a hotel pool hesitant to play with his special-needs daughter, Morgan, Gordon Hartman had a vision of turning an abandoned quarry in Northeast San Antonio, TX into an accessible theme park. Gordon and his wife Maggie started working on plans for Morgan’s Wonderland, the first theme park designed with special needs individuals in mind. Open since 2010, Morgan’s Wonderland has now had more than a million visitors from all 50 states and 66 other countries. The park brings together those with and without disabilities for fun and a better understanding of one another. Now in 2017, the Hartmans are excited to be finishing construction on their latest expansion, Morgan’s Inspiration Island, the world’s first ultra-accessible splash park for guests of all ages to get wet and have fun together.
Pre-scheduled Saturday appointments and at-home demonstrations are also an option.
Now that spring is here, most of the MobilityWorks locations have recently adjusted their schedules to include or extend Saturday showroom hours. Clients wanting to stop in and look at wheelchair accessible vans for sale, or to schedule a free needs analysis with a Certified Mobility Consultant, are encouraged to view the individual hours of each location on our website. Most of the stores are open on Saturday’s starting at 9 AM in the morning.
