Ability Prosthetics and Orthotics, headquartered in Exton, Pennsylvania, is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Ability was founded in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, by Jeffrey Brandt, CPO, the company’s CEO. As part of its celebration, Ability unveiled an anniversary logo for the year.
While working at an O&P facility in 1996, Brandt met Jeffrey T. Quelet, CPO. They formed a relationship at the bench, and after working together for nearly a year, they moved on to pursue their careers. As they parted in 1997, Quelet handed Brandt a dollar bill and explained that this was to be the first dollar to start his company. Brandt tucked the dollar away, and in 2004 opened his first office. Ability now has ten patient care facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Quelet works at the Hagerstown, Maryland, facility.
“[A]s we look ahead to what the next ten years will hold for us, we’re honored and grateful you all have helped us reach this success,” Brandt said. “On behalf of myself and all of the talented staff at Ability, thank you!”
