AMF Bruns Enters U.S. Vehicle Modification Market

HUDSON, Oh. — There are over 3 million wheelchair users in the U.S., a number rising daily as baby boomers continue to age. Until recently the U.S. paratransit industry had few options for suppliers of vehicle modification products. Enter AMF Bruns of America.

AMF Bruns is a one-stop shop providing wheelchair securement, occupant restraint systems and associated equipment for the safe transportation of wheelchair passengers. In the 1970’s they developed the first wheelchair safety system and invented the world’s first 4-point retractor wheelchair anchoring system. Founded in Germany in 1962, the U.S. distribution facility opened in 2013.

“As a global leader in the vehicle conversion market, we provide the complete accessories package to safely transport people with limited mobility,” said Steven Kost, operations manager of AMF Bruns of America. “This includes restraints, seating, shoulder harnesses, head & back rests and side & electric steps. We guarantee high quality and the market’s best pricing.”
