Ricon acquires Transit Care

Posted on September 27, 2005

Panorama City, Calif.-based Ricon Corp., announced today at the APTA EXPO its decision to acquire the operations of Transit Care Inc., of Colton, Calif.

Transit Care’s line of products, which includes an anti-graffiti window for transit, fits with Ricon’s refocused mission to provide lifts, ramps and door and window systems for transportation applications.

Ricon also unveiled at the show its first-ever pneumatic bus door actuator system, which is designed to be compatible on already existing bus door systems.

“With sheet metal fabrication as a core competency and the assets that already constitute our transit and rail business line, door systems are a logical fit for us,” said Oscar Pardinas, vice president of Ricon’s transit division.
