Amigo Mobility - Who We Are

Al Thieme, Chairman & Founder

Al Thieme founded Amigo Mobility International, Inc. in 1968 with the invention of the first power-operated vehicle (POV)/scooter. The device was named the Amigo for being such a friend to people with disabilities, and the mobility POV/scooter industry was born. Running his own business as a plumbing and heating contractor at the time, Al has received the best education possible -- through hands-on experience and hard work. From a plumber to National Small Businessman of the Year, he is a true American success story. His tireless drive to improve the lives of customers inspires others to find a better way. In May of 2012, the Thiemes were named Michigan Manufacturer of the Year by the Michigan Manufacturer's Association. In November 2012, Al was honored with the Dr. Samuel H. Shaheen Vision of Free Enterprise Award from the Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce. 

 

Beth Thieme, CEO

In 1975, Beth Thieme joined Amigo Mobility and has had a role in nearly every department, from purchasing to sales. While running the company with her husband Al, Beth oversees commercial sales and has significantly increased sales in the past five years. Her passion for Amigo and the community keeps her very active. Beth serves on the Executive Council for the Saginaw Valley State University College of Business & Management. In 2009, Beth also received the Top Women in Grocery award. In May of 2012, Amigo was named Michigan Manufacturer of the Year by the Michigan Manfuacturer's Association and Michigan's 2014 list of 50 Companies to Watch.
