2017 Year in Review

2017 was La Boit’s 35th year in business, and let me tell ya, it was a great one! We continued to deliver what some of our customers have affectionately referred to as the “Cadillacs of Specialty Vehicles.” And of course, we did it with the best customer service in the business.

A big part of that is making sure we’re delivering our 35 years of industry-expertise to each and every one of our clients – not only on how to design and lay out their vehicle, but also how to fund it and promote it. One of our most popular articles this year was “Using Grants to Fund Your Specialty Vehicle.” We talked about some of the ways that other La Boit clients have used grant funding in creative ways, either to fund specific initiatives, or by combining grants with other fundraising or financing activities.

Then, he completed a veterinary internship in Manhattan. He finally settled in the Boston area, which is where he first decided to go mobile.
