Stealth Products, Burnet, Texas, has expanded its footprint in the complex rehabilitation market through its recent acquisition of San Antonio-based Accessible Designs Inc (ADI), a manufacturer of complex rehab mobility components.
A media release from Stealth Products describes ADI as a firm that is known for its innovative ultralight wheelchair seating systems and accessories. This includes a disc brake system that aims to increase functionality and safety for wheelchair users.
Founded in 1990, ADI components reportedly are used as aftermarket components on many brands of ultralight wheelchairs.
In the release from Stealth Products, Lorenzo Romero, president of Stealth Products, explains that Stealth and ADI have worked together for many years with complementary mobility-related products in the complex rehab space.
“With shared visions of furthering product innovation, our companies align so well that we feel strongly that this acquisition can serve the market even better,” Romero states. “This acquisition was inspired by common values and an unyielding desire to enhance the mobility, independence and well-being of individuals with special needs.”
All manufacturing, distribution, and sales responsibility for ADI products will transfer to Stealth Products effective July 1, 2015. According to the Stealth Products release, Todd Hargroder, founder and CEO of ADI, will move to Stealth in a senior engineering role. Additionally, Dylan Springfield, ADI’s national sales manager, will move into a new sales role with Stealth Products.
“This acquisition solidifies Stealth’s commitment to the ADI mission of designing cutting-edge products for the mobility industry,” Hargroder notes in the media release. “I’m personally excited to be able to focus 100% of my time on product improvement and new product design, as well as having Stealth’s global team supporting the ADI brand. I look forward to being a part of the Stealth family for many years to come.”
