TravelMate III helps area business owner

Al Thieme and Jon Hall, presidents and founders of their own businesses, are both entrepreneurs whose dreams and ambition led to successful companies. Thieme founded Amigo Mobility International, Inc. in 1968 after inventing the first power operated vehicle/scooter. Hall founded Glastender, Inc. in 1969 after inventing the first rotary glass-washer. Both men have seen their children join the ranks of the family businesses and are actively involved in the Family Business Program conducted at Saginaw Valley State University.
 
Jon Hall’s knees are admittedly “shot,” but Al Thieme sees that as no excuse not to be moving and energized. Buzzing around the spacious hallways of Glastender on the newest Amigo TravelMate III, Jon continues to be active and hands-on at work. Lightweight and foldable, the Amigo is easily transported in his vehicle for outdoor excursions.
Hall explains, “With my bad knees, walking long distances at trade shows is a problem. The TravelMate keeps me energized and able to check out the competition! This taller seat is at a good level to speak with people, too.”

Jon's TravelMate III is customized with a tall seat post, different seat to allow him to sit higher, and a painted black platform.

The TravelMate III is now in full production. “Active seniors needing just that extra bit of walking assistance for long distances will want the TravelMate III. They’ll be able to fold it up, put it in the car and be on their way.”
