ASE Master Technician Sure Grip Hand control installer for disabled drivers

Ed Williams, ASE Master Technician

Ed Williams is an ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certified Master Technician. Why is this important you  may ask? When a technician is installing hand controls, he is engaged in the dis-assembly of your steering column and dash board area. Today’s vehicle are “packed full” or wiring harnesses, airbag sensors, airbag deployment areas and components that allow your vehicle to function, electronically. Failure to re-install this equipment correctly can cause a lot more problems than most people realize.

Ed also leads the industry in our area of Virginia as a Certified Sure Grip Hand Control Installer. Ed brings over 20+ years of vehicle modification experience customizing vehicles in a fleet used by high ranking officials and dignitaries around the world. These vehicles were among the most luxuriate and most heavily armored vehicles in the world today. Ed’s talent for modifying and adapting vehicles, while having them “look factory original” is unmatched in our hand control and disability modified vehicle industry.  Put Ed’s vast experience in preventative and corrective vehicle maintenance, as well as his ability to fabricate and make modifications to factory vehicles to work for you.   We guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
