Ann Marie Limousine was a subsidiary of Battisti Customs, a top manufacturer of custom vehicles. Epic’s strong relationship with Battisti’s owners led to an agreement to purchase the company. Epic moved Ann Marie’s operations to the South Bend Airport to better service its clients in St. Joseph County.
The move to South Bend Airport was no accident. In addition to strategic acquisitions, Epic Limo leverages its ties to the aviation industry to continue to grow. President Brian Sheely has years of experience in private aircraft charter and has brought those skills to bear in the limousine operation. Epic looks for opportunities to base locations at airports to better serve clients with convenience and speed.
Epic’s expansion began in 2015 when Sheely looked for opportunities for growth in the form of strategic acquisitions. That year, Epic Limo bought Cedar Mill Limo in St. John, Ind. The two companies already had a great working relationship, so purchasing Cedar Mill’s fleet and integrating its employees into the Epic team was a natural fit.
Then in June 2016, Epic acquired Southlake Limousine of Highland, Ind., Southlake had a large fleet and was one of the longest-running ground transportation companies in the state. Adding Southlake’s location to Epic’s footprint put the company within 28 miles of Chicago City Center and greatly expanded its ability to serve the Chicagoland and Northern Indiana areas.
Grateful for its growth and reach, Epic Limo is committed to giving back to the community and has shared its success by generously supporting various local charity organizations. Epic gives to a wide range of charitable efforts, such as Make a Wish, Housing Opportunities, Opportunity Enterprises, Reins of Life, The Caring Place, Honor Flight Network, and local VFW posts.
“It is our goal to provide our customers with top-notch service, in comfort and safety, whether we are taking them to the airport, on a corporate outing, or on a wine tour. We believe we provide the best luxury service in our markets,” says President Brian Sheely.
