FEV North America Inc announces the milestone of providing the 25,000th wheelchair ramp gateway module used in BraunAbility-converted FCA vans.

The gateway module interfaces with the BraunAbility Wheelchair Ramp Control Module and FCA’s minivan communication bus, according to a media release from Auburn Hills, Mich-based FEV North America Inc.
