Waldoch Conversion Vans at Dave Arbogast

September 13th, 2016 by

Conversion Vans by Waldoch at Dave ArbogastWaldoch Conversion Vans started in a garage in Forest Lake, Minnesota when a friend asked to have some custom cabinets for his van built. Don Waldoch accepted this challenge in the mid 1970’s, this is how the modern day conversion van came about. Interest began to grow with similar projects, so Don and one employee completed these tasks – including the conversion work.
Waldoch developed a relationship with Ford Motor Company and in no time vans were selling at a fast pace. Soon after developing this relationship, Waldoch moved to a large production facility and created hundreds of new jobs. Competing with nearly 150 companies building conversion vans, the focus on quality set Waldoch apart from its competitors. Waldoch was a top 10 “best sales and quality” performer for Ford and General Motors.

Many conversion van companies were forced to go bankrupt in the early 2000’s. Waldoch was able to maintain business by assisting dealerships with warranty work and providing parts for conversion vans. Now Waldoch is 1 of 10 conversion companies still manufacturing vans, and the family tradition carries on.

Today, Waldoch produces 4 models of conversion vans: Luxury, Shuttle, Limo, and Mobility Vans. Waldoch Galaxy Vans provide more room for family, friends, and cargo. Now specializing in

RAM Promaster and Ford Transit chassis, galaxy vans are available in high top and low top models providing luxury, safety, convenience, and versatility.
