LIMA, Ohio - Accubuilt, Inc., manufacturer of coaches and limousines for the funeral industry, has agreed to purchase the assets of Vartanian Industries, Inc., a maker of wheelchair, shuttle and limousine vans.

Over the next 60 days, Accubuilt will move the manufacturing location from Vartanian's Brodheadsville, Pa.-headquarters to Accubuilt's facility in Lima Ohio, as part of the purchase agreement. Roger Vartanian, Jr. and Chris Vartanian will join Accubuilt as vice presidents, responsible for sales and marketing of Vartanian products.

    I bought a conversion Van ( 2001 Ford E-250 ) 2 years ago which has a leak assumably from a faulty seal that attached the turtletop. I also have an issue with a mis-guilded water release from my rear after market AC unit that has deteriorated some of the wood framework that holds it in. This vehicle has the Vartanian Industries metal label still attached above the 2 rear doors hence the reason I am looking to you for some direction. I just want to repair these items and I reside in the Orlando, Fl. airport area. Do you have any companies you deal with here in Orlando that I can deal with to repair these items.
