When it comes to his individual mobility, TRIGEMA boss Wolfgang Grupp has very clear ideas. The vehicle must be comfortable. And efficient, of course. This is precisely why he opted for an all-electric Mercedes EQS as his new company car. However, it was missing a crucial detail that the textile entrepreneur from Burladingen in Southern Germany has been attaching great importance to for 47 years: the passenger seat installed against the direction of travel.
This seat configuration makes it possible for him to stretch out his legs comfortably on long journeys, improves forward visibility and also makes it easier to talk to the driver. "When you've been used to this for 30 or 40 years, of course you don't want to take a step back!" says Grupp.
Contrary to expectations, the search for a specialist who could undertake the individual comfort conversion did not turn out to be so easy. Grupp then found what he was looking for in Pfronstetten-Aichelau. For the mobility experts at PARAVAN, "neighborly help" was a matter of honor!
"When converting vehicles for people with disabilities, it is part of our daily routine to cater to the very individual requirements of our customers," explains Kevin Arnold from PARAVAN GmbH. "And what doesn't yet exist, we invent! That's why we didn't hesitate for a second when Mr. Grupp contacted us! We are proud to be able to help such an entrepreneurial personality make his mobility just a little bit more comfortable!"
