BraunAbility is the global leader of mobility, manufacturing wheelchair vans, SUV’s, and wheelchair lifts. The company has grown from a modest small-town entrepreneurial venture with a handful of employees to a half-billion-dollar, global company with over 1,200 employees, serving more than 70 countries.
BraunAbility continues to plan for growth both domestically and globally. Through organic means as well as merger and acquisition, BraunAbility forecasts doubling its sales to $1 Billion by 2021. Such a rapid growth-trajectory means that the company has its hopes set on an international corporate headquarters beyond current headquarters in rural Winamac, IN, to provide better global accessibility and to access a larger talent pool.
BraunAbility plans on creating approximately 68 additional jobs over the next five years, bringing the total Indiana team to 968 members. Additionally, BraunAbility plans on investing approximately $8 Million in the new facility and equipment. In 2019, our Incentives & Location advisors were asked to perform a confidential study to determine the best location for its new headquarters.
