MILWAUKEE — REV Group (NYSE:REVG), a $2.4 billion manufacturer of industry-leading specialty vehicle brands and leading provider of parts and services, announced today that it is combining its two wheelchair accessible van brands – ElDorado Mobility and recently acquired AutoAbility – into a new Mobility brand – Revability.
The new Revability brand features a diverse line of side and rear-entry mobility vans for the consumer market and a line of commercial rear-entry wheelchair accessible vans for the taxi, non-medical (cot van) and paratransit segments in the U.S. and Canada. The rear and side-entry vans are available in manual and powered rear-entry access, in long or short cut floor plans. A number of chassis types are up-fitted including: Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Pacifica, Toyota Sienna and the Dodge Ram ProMaster series.
All vehicles are crash tested and meet FMVSS and CMVSS safety standards and all commercial offerings are ADA compliant.
As part of the new brand launch, REV Group is honored to have had the opportunity to donate a new Revability wheelchair accessible van to a needy family at the 32nd Annual Great Sports Legend Event to benefit The Buoniconti Fund, held in New York City on September 25, 2017 (www.TheBuonicontiFund.com/GSLD).
This renowned event benefits The Buoniconti Fund (www.TheBuonicontiFund.com) which is the fundraising arm of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. The Miami Project, a designated Center of Excellence at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, is the world’s most comprehensive spinal cord injury research center. Since its inception in 1985, the Great Sports Legends Dinner has honored more than 300 sports legends and honorees and has helped The Buoniconti Fund raise more than $350 million for
The Miami Project’s spinal cord injury research programs. The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis, through the research efforts of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, is committed to finding a cure for paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury and to seeing millions worldwide walk again.
In addition to the wheelchair accessible van donated at the Great Sports Legends Event, REV is pleased to announce that its Mobility Division has established a new program with The Buoniconti Fund to donate $100 for each Revability van sold in 2018 – up to $50,000 in the first year.
John Walsh, REV Bus & Mobility Group President commented, “This is a very exciting time for REV and the Mobility Division to be able to combine two great brands in the wheelchair accessible van market – AutoAbility and Eldorado Mobility – into one new brand – Revability. With the resources of REV, our excellent manufacturing facilities, a strong new Mobility management team and unparalleled customer service, Revability is positioned for great success. We are equally excited to be working with The Buoniconti Fund and increasing our commitment to the 'Ability Community.'"
Marc Buoniconti, President of The Miami Project and The Buoniconti Fund, commented, “We are pleased that the REV Group stepped up this year and appreciate their generous donation of a Revability van to this needy family. I look forward to working with REV this coming year with their increasing commitment to the Buoniconti Fund.”
