Amramp Los Angeles was named Dealer of the Month for July 2016 by Aqua Creek Products, a leading provider of pool lifts for residential and commercial pool and spa access.
After working in the cable television industry for 25 years, Brett McKee, owner of Amramp Los Angeles, was inspired to switch careers when a family member became ill. After building a wheelchair ramp for his father-in-law, Brett realized this was an opportunity to help others. Brett purchased an Amramp franchise in May 2007 to help him reach more people and supply them with solutions for their accessibility needs. Brett provides pool lifts, wheelchair ramps and other accessibility products throughout the California area at residential homes, businesses, schools and institutions. His sons, Brendan and Patrick service the Northern California area and Brett handles Southern California.
When the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements for commercial pool and spa access came out, it presented Brett with an extraordinary opportunity to provide more accessibility by offering pool lifts for homes, hotels and commercial facilities.
Brett used his experience and the knowledge of his other Amramp franchise partners along with the expertise of the Aqua Creek family. He quickly became proficient at determining the right lift for each project and the proper installation process. Brett is currently working with a hotel chain in California to install 12 pool lifts this summer.
In their announcement, Aqua Creek notes, “Brett maintains a high level of quality, making sure Aqua Creek lifts were installed properly to meet any local code requirements. Brett’s professionalism carries over to his residential services. He provides his customers with exception support through his breadth of knowledge and his capacity for caring. If you are looking for a quality company in the State of California that genuinely cares about your access needs, call Amramp of Los Angeles today!”
Aqua Creek Products, based in Missoula, MT, has been manufacturing high quality aquatic access equipment since 2002.
Amramp is the leading company in the United States specializing in modular steel wheelchair ramps, offering sturdy, customizable ramps for disability access that enable the aging and disabled population to remain in their homes with independence and mobility. Ramps can be installed temporarily for short or long term needs without damaging the housing structure as they are not a permanent modification to the home. Amramp products comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and are available for sale or rental with no minimum time frame and no ramp size restrictions.
Amramp also installs Vertical Platform Lifts which are used where the length of a ramp might be impractical. Portable wheelchair showers are used when a client cannot utilize the shower or tub facility and does not want to remodel the bathroom.
