PUEBLO, Colo. (April 9, 2024) – EZ-ACCESS, one of the world’s leading producers of high-quality accessibility solutions, has partnered with PBR (Professional Bull Riders) to blaze a new trail in the category in building a consumer brand for its products.

As the official ramp and accessibility provider of PBR, EZ-ACCESS will have branding rights to the ADA sections of PBR event arenas, and on the ramp leading to the cage positioned in the center of the arena that is used for rider introductions and victory celebrations.  The year-round sponsorship, spanning the PBR Unleash The Beast and PBR Camping World Teams Series, includes other fixed and digital signage along with social media content.

“We’re using PBR as a primary marketing platform to build our consumer brand; it’s a big deal for our company and the entire access category,” said Don Everard, CEO of EZ-ACCESS. “We believe that our ‘Made in America’ local craftsmanship initiative, support of our veterans and first responders, quality products, and passion for hard-working grassroots Americans align well with PBR and its fans. Our mission over the past 40 years has been to enrich lives by providing access to life beyond barriers. Now we intend to be first in our category to create a powerful brand voice.”

“We’re honored EZ-ACCESS chose PBR to build and communicate a strong consumer brand, and we’re excited to help tell their story,” said Josh Baker, Chief Revenue Officer, PBR. “They’re a family-owned company with a gritty entrepreneurial story – making high-quality products here in America – and are expanding to new consumer markets like recreational and pet ramps. Our values and cultures are a match. It’s gratifying to develop a new category – accessibility helps people enjoy life.”

One of PBR’s core values is offering a welcoming, inclusive sport. The multiyear partnership will include recognition of those enjoying each event in the EZ-ACCESS ADA section. As part of the collaboration, EZ-ACCESS also plans to donate ramps to Western sports athletes and fans in need.

Starting out in 1984 selling inflatable bathtubs from a kitchen office, EZ-ACCESS now ships more than 3,000 ramps each month to a total of more than 3 million customers since its inception.  With more than 124,000 ramp installations for American veterans, millions of residential portable and modular wheelchair ramps, ramps and multi-story stair systems for commercial and industrial use, and recreational and pet ramps, EZ-ACCESS products are designed to ensure safe, convenient, and durable access.

EZ-ACCESS products will be sold direct to consumers via the company’s new consumer website launching in May 2024, and through a nationwide network of durable medical equipment dealers and authorized online retailers such as The Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Amazon. The company manufactures its products in Kentucky in state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facilities that have more than 375,000 square feet of space.
