PET San Antonio Ribbon Cutting

Mobility Worldwide (formally known as Personal Energy Transportation (PET) ), is a ministry whose goal is to bring “The Gift of Mobility” to disabled people in developing countries.  Mobility Worldwide was started in 1994 by a missionary, Rev. Larry Hills and a pastor, Rev. Mel West.  Since then, 25 building sites in the United States and 1 in Zambia have formed, including the San Antonio, Texas site that opened in 2004. (See HISTORY for a detailed history of Mobility Worldwide at their website.)

We began building Mobility Cart parts for another affiliate but soon developed our own operation in someone’s workshop in his backyard.  We quickly outgrew that shop and then another, and for several years we were building Mobility Carts in a small airport hangar.  On May 23, 2010, we had a ribbon-rutting ceremony at our new manufacturing site located at 219 E. Nakoma, near the San Antonio Airport.    We were pleased that a representative from Texas State Senator Patricia Van de Putte’s office was present at the ribbon-cutting ceremony and presented us with a Certificate of Congratulation from Senator Van de Putte for the work we are doing “for giving dignity, hope and mobility to millions in need.”
