Where We Came From
NorCal Van Conversions has been in the conversion industry for over 30 years and is known as a leader in the industry. Prior to 2013 NorCal Mobility, the sister company of NorCal Vans, had four retail locations selling directly to customers and was well established in providing wheelchair accessible vans. We are proud to have been a part of allowing thousands of physically handicapped individuals achieve mobility freedom, and in many cases the ability to drive their own vehicle.
While we continue to provide personal mobility solutions, changes in the industry allowed us to move into larger commercial opportunities over the past several years and to develop conversion solutions for multiple industries. As a company that values innovation, we are committed to providing solutions that truly meet the needs of our clients.
Todd and Laurie LaPant became partners in the business in January of 2018 and took over full ownership of the company January 1, 2019. The LaPant’s came to NorCal with over 50 years combined experience in the transportation industry. Building on the foundation laid by founder Ken Karasinski, our goal is to stay on the leading edge of the conversion industry, with a focus on providing larger fleet operators with hybrid options to lessen the overall cost of ownership.
Where We are Going
Under the leadership of Todd and Laurie, the primary business focus for 2019 and beyond is to work with Ford and Bus Dealers directly to provide them with everything they need to sell to their customers. Todd holds multiple patents and loves to innovate and help solve the challenges that customers face. With the solid industry knowledge and established conversion history, NorCal is positioned to supply the current demand as well as the future needs of fleet operators in the western United States. From existing opportunities to new ideas that need innovation, NorCal is positioned to be the partner that Dealers can count on.
