Fenton Mobility Products Inc. (Fenton) announced the acquisition of long-time mobility dealer and fellow upfitter Main Mobility of Buffalo, N.Y.
Previous owner Tom Lorentz’s number one concern in deciding the fate of the 37-year run company started by his grandfather was that the future of his customers be in good hands with someone well versed in the industry that shares the same dedication to safety, quality, and customer service as his own. The acquisition was the result of Fenton and Main Mobility’s mutual respect for each other’s heritage and vested interest in their teams, end users, and companies’ futures.
Despite being competitors, the two companies have always worked closely together, even joining forces on several projects over the years. Values that FENTON was built on, and we are proud to continue its legacy into the future.”
Fenton Mobility began converting vehicles in the mid-1980s out of Jamestown, N.Y. In 2015, the company launched AbiliTrax, a patented modular flooring and accessories product line, followed by three additional patented seating solutions and the patented Shift-N-Step Dual Access Lift System. By December 2018, having tripled in size, Fenton moved into its new manufacturing and upfit plant in Randolph, N.Y., and transitioned solely to the commercial market.
The merging of two of the longest-running mobility upfitters in the region began early October 2020 with Main Mobility’s move to its new location at 5375 Transit Road in Buffalo.
The acquisition of Main Mobility further increases Fenton’s shares in the specialized mobility market and solidifies Fenton’s position as one of the leading Mobility Dealers in New York State.
Main Mobility, which will continue to operate under that name, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Fenton Mobility Products Inc.
