Hoekstra Transportation Acquires Mobility Transportation Services

Completing Hoekstra Transportations Portfolio of Product Offerings

 

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Nov. 13, 2018 – Hoekstra Transportation, Inc announced today that on Nov. 6, 2018 they acquired Mobility Transportation Services of Canton, Mich. Hoekstra Transportations footprint will grow on the East side of Michigan, expanding the Company’s current product offerings and initiating their strategic expansion plans in the Great Lakes Region.

Through this acquisition Hoekstra feels they have a full portfolio of offerings to better serve the commercial, mobility, retail and transit vehicle segments and compete in the marketplace. Hoekstra will now offer a full line-up of commercial buses, from lowered floor accessible mini vans to heavy duty city transit buses.

“We are extremely excited to add Champion and BraunAbility to our line-up of products, as well as the mutually beneficial partnership established to be a dealer of MobilityTRANS Michigan manufactured products. Our experiences and similarity in processes, with both state contracts and servicing the same customer base, provides assurance to both Mobility Transportation Services and Hoekstra Transportation’s partners that the transition will be virtually seamless,” said Mark Hoekstra, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hoekstra Companies.

Hoekstra is acquiring Mobility Transportation Services assets and name, while MobilityTRANS manufacturing operations will continue to run out of their Canton, Michigan location under the current MobilityTRANS ownership and name. Operations, partnerships and contracts through Mobility Transportation Services will be honored through term and available for renewal, with no disruption to customers. Both organizations share the common vision for long-term success of Mobility Transportation Services, as well as the organizations and partners they serve.

To ensure a seamless transition, Mobility Transportation Services will continue to operate under the Mobility Transportation Services name, with adaptation to the Hoekstra name likely in the future.
