Access Elevator, Inc. is proud to announce its newest location, the Access Mobility Center, at 1314 W. College Ave. in Appleton, Wisconsin. Access Elevator is the Midwest’s leader in mobility products for your home, business, or vehicle. The Access Mobility Center will be open for business June 1st, 2020 with a grand opening planned later once social distancing guidelines are relaxed.

Owner Jon Tevz says, “For over 30 years Access Elevator has helped individuals, families, and veterans make life accessible. We’re proud and excited to expand our operations in Appleton to serve the entire Fox Valley region, including Stevens Point and Wausau.”

Tevz continues, “From simple grab bars in the shower, to a stairlift at home, or adding a wheelchair ramp to your favorite Chrysler, Honda, or Toyota minivan, Access can outfit your life to make sure you can live, work, and play where you want without barriers. ‘Removing Barriers |Advancing Independence’-- that’s our mission statement.”

Says Tevz, “Our aim is to provide mobility to anyone who wants it. We have a spectacular showroom featuring a lift chairs, stair lifts, a vertical platform or ‘porch’ lift, ramps of all sizes and configurations, mobility scooters, plus a lowered-floor wheelchair conversion van on display. You, your spouse or domestic partner, or other family members can come in and get a demonstration of any product prior to purchase to make sure it’s the right fit for you.”

Access Elevator has a long history of working with local non-profits and Medicaid waiver programs to get mobility equipment in the hands of those who need it the most. Says Tevz, “We have worked with the Variety Club to get porch lifts for disabled children in need, we are an approved contractor for many of the Veterans Administration housing grants available, and we’ve worked with numerous long-term waiver programs at the county level. If there’s a funding source that can benefit you or your family, we’ll work with them to get you the home modification you need.”

The Access Mobility Center will be led by local branch manager Andy Schleich. Schleich has over 16 years’ experience in the mobility industry and has won numerous sales awards and holds several certifications from national suppliers including Bruno Independent Living Aids and VMI Vantage Mobility. A native of North Carolina, he’s enjoying the beauty of the Fox Valley. “I love the way of life up here!”, says Schleich.
