The history of Golden Technologies is a story that defines the American dream. Founded in 1985 by Robert Golden, Sr., and Fred Kiwak, Golden Technologies was founded on the pledge to “build it right the first time,” a motto that still holds true today. In fact, that promise is proudly displayed on a banner hanging above our lift chair manufacturing floor, reminding our employees every day of the commitment we have to our customers. As a family-owned, family-operated company, Golden Technologies is committed to manufacturing the highest quality products in the durable medical equipment industry.
Golden expanded into the personal scooter business in 1996. Today, we offer several models of scooters serving a wide range of needs, from the portability of the Buzzaround Lite, Buzzaround XL and LiteRider scooters; to the luxurious appointments of the Companion models; and the outdoor, heavy duty Patriot scooter with a 400 lb. weight capacity and the Avenger four-wheel scooter with a 500 lb. weight capacity.
In 2003 Golden Technologies was awarded the U.S. Veteran’s Administration contract to supply our Companion scooters to all U.S. Veterans through Veterans Administration Medical Centers throughout the nation. We are very proud that the quality and durability of the Companion scooters, and our dedication to this program, has enabled us to renew this contract with the U.S. Veteran’s Administration every year since.
Our expansion into the power wheelchair business was the latest step in offering a line of products to help those with varying levels of disabilities. Since 2005, our Golden Compass series of power wheelchairs provides the maneuverability and stability of true center-wheel drive performance of the Compass Sport and the Compass HD (Heavy Duty) models. In addition, we offer a unique consumer power chair with the all new LiteRider Envy Power Chair which features 2-22 Amp batteries and offers an impressive operating range up to 15.5 miles!
It is with great excitement that Golden introduced the Golden Buzzaround Extreme Scooter in 2016. This scooter is truly the first hybrid scooter in the industry, as it features the portability, maneuverability, and easy disassembly of a lightweight scooter, yet it offers the awesome benefits of a full-size scooter!
