SIMON PETERS American Medical Equipment Supplies and Repairs, LLC

Having worked in the elevator, lift, and mobility business for ten years, I saw first-hand the difficulties physically challenged and disabled face, simply to be able to move from place to place.

In an effort to address this need, I became a Certified Accessibility Technician, and created my business American Medical Equipment Supplies and Repairs, LLC.

I sell and fix medical transport supplies, including wheelchairs, scooters, stair lifts, cranes, and crutches. However, I supply more than medical equipment. This kind of service gives people a sense of independence and self-reliance.

Taking the Community Business Academy taught me a lot about planning and bookkeeping for my business, but my experience with RTC didn’t stop there. I’ve used the Help Desk to build my website and I’ve been receiving one-on-one coaching through the Business Acceleration Services, which is helping me to plan my next steps.

While having my own business is rewarding, what I really appreciate most is the satisfaction of my customers. Most times after doing a service job or selling a product to my customers, they grace me with a wide grin and a “thank you” which is what really keeps me going.

My vision for AME Supplies is to help every physically challenged or disabled person I meet get back to some normalcy of life.
