Drive-Master Co. Inc. is the oldest Family Owned and Operated Adaptive Mobility Equipment Dealer in the United States. Our staff has over 3 generations and 280 years of combined experience. Drive-Master is Your Total Mobility Center. Drive-Master was founded in 1952 by Alan B. Ruprecht after he had become seriously Disabled from Adult Polio. He soon realized that there was little he could do without the freedom of driving his automobile. Unfortunately, the Hand Controls available at the time were too costly and poorly constructed.
