Last Friday, we had an opportunity to host several guests from the ALS Association, Massachusetts Chapter – Jan Obermann, Shannon Wheeler and Margie Ware – here at our South Boston headquarters. We have worked with the ALS Association for many years to install wheelchair ramps and other accessibility products for their families.
It was an opportunity for the ALS Team to see how we make our ramps and for our manufacturing team to learn more about how important the parts are that they make and how each ramp changes someone’s life.
“Thank you all for your time, hospitality, and the wonderful opportunity to meet with all of you and your amazing team of workers. We truly had a great time, and found the tour so instructive. And, we loved speaking to the guys who are working so hard to manufacture the ramps. It’s an amazing operation that you have, and we were very impressed! Thanks for the coffee, donuts, and pizza!
As you know, most of our ALS patients will at some point during the course of their disease need a ramp. By seeing your production from draft, to final product gives us a great appreciation for what all of you do! Our Chapter ramp program would not be possible without your support. We are grateful to Tom Duffy, and Bill Dowley for the sensitivity they show to our patients, and for going the extra mile to meet their needs.
Thank you for sharing of your time and talent with us today. It was a wonderful experience!”
