WHERE WE ARE TODAY

CCI remains committed to the advancement of mobility products which meet the changing needs of our customers and compliment the design of the evolving automotive industry. In 2005, we introduced the revolutionary Armstrong scooter and wheelchair lift after identifying our customers’ desire to utilize third-row seating while stowing their mobility devices in SUV’s, vans, and crossover vehicles. In 2007, CCI introduced C-Dock, a modern approach to the traditional occupied wheelchair securement system which combines the reassurance of a successfully crash-tested product along with a seamless original-equipment-manufacturer look and feel at an economical price. With a team of cutting-edge engineers, CCI will continue to set the standards for adaptive vehicle equipment in the future.
With over 900 certified mobility dealers, CCI products are available to consumers worldwide. Through comprehensive training programs, our network of mobility dealers gains a thorough understanding of the installation and service of our products, as well as the unique benefits each product offers to its users. This level of open communication between CCI and its dealers allows for a quality of service that will exceed your highest expectations when you invest in a CCI product.
On a national level, CCI is a proud member of ADED, the Association for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists. ADED is a nonprofit organization devoted primarily to the support of professionals working in the field of driver education and transportation equipment modification for persons with disabilities.
