S&R Coach Closes its Doors in Late April

Posted on May 28, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Little more than three years ago, the owners of Strafford-based S&R Coach LLC were building a second production facility in Bolivar and talking with city officials about another possible location in Bolivar’s industrial park. But in late April, the limousine builder closed its doors, and a two-day auction in early May was held to liquidate the company’s assets and real estate.

Former customers who say S&R Coach owes them money, warranty repairs, or custom-built vehicles told Springfield Business Journal they, too, have been unable to reach owners Adin and Corinna Baban, whose home and business numbers have been disconnected.

S&R Coach was the sole authorized builder of the racing limos for franchisees of Naples, Fla.-based Racing Limos Inc. Jane Kelly-Forret is one such franchisee in Des Moines, Iowa, who has been trying to make contact with the Babans for more than six months, but to no avail. Ed Mason, who owns a Racing Limos franchise in Tulsa, Okla., said S&R Coach owes him about $7,500 for outfitting S&R’s limos with fabricated parts and graphics.
