HASCO Medical's Ride-Away Secures Rights to Market BraunAbility Wheelchair Accessible Vans in Baltimore Metro Area

ADDISON, TX and BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 25, 2014) - Ride-Away®, a leading provider of handicap-accessible vans, parts and service and subsidiary of HASCO Medical, Inc. (OTCQB: HASC), has secured the rights to market BraunAbility® wheelchair accessible vans in the Baltimore, Maryland metropolitan area.

BraunAbility products are produced by the Braun Corporation, the nation's oldest and largest manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vehicles, providing high-quality mobility products for more than 45 years. BraunAbility represents the most diverse model lineup in the industry, including the most popular minivan models from Dodge/Chrysler, Honda and Toyota.

HASCO Medical has begun to evaluate a number of dealership locations in the Baltimore area, and expects to announce the location in the third quarter of 2014. The new location will bring the total number of HASCO dealerships with BraunAbility territories to 20 across the Eastern U.S. HASCO Medical also plans to offer wheelchair lifts, transfer seating, hand controls, service and rentals of wheelchair accessible vehicles at the new location.

"The addition of a new BraunAbility sales territory strengthens our position as one of Braun's largest resellers, and it expands our already broad selection of specialized vehicles and services we offer in the state," said Hal Compton, CEO of HASCO Medical. "Many Maryland customers currently have to travel long distances to reach the nearest BraunAbility dealership. When our new Baltimore location opens, we expect its more convenient location to attract both existing and new customers from as far as northern Delaware and southern Pennsylvania. We also expect to realize greater efficiencies in marketing expenses across our stores in Virginia and Maryland."

Braun EVP of Sales, Marketing & Service Kevin McMahon commented: "We rely on our dealers to provide a sales and service experience that reflects the superior quality, reliability and functionality of our BraunAbility products. A new HASCO dealership in the Baltimore area not only expands our nationwide dealer network, it means our Baltimore-area customers will enjoy the best selection of BraunAbility products and receive high-quality, personalized service that helps them maintain active lives, regardless of physical limitations."
