American Emergency Vehicles (AEV), the nation’s top selling brand of ambulances, has custom built a Ford Transit Type III ambulance for Life EMS Ambulance in Michigan. The new ambulance combines a Ford Transit cutaway chassis with a modular body.

AEV engineers worked with its valued partner Mickey Truck Bodies Inc. and Life EMS Ambulance in designing the customized Type III Ford transit to meet specific safety and patient care needs. The ambulance has a narrow, 86” body, conducive to navigating congested, urban areas. It is enhanced with AEV engineering innovations, such as Infinity-Edge Body Panels, Smart-Action Door Mechanics and Tru-Precision Door Gaskets for superior quality and value.

“All of us at Life EMS Ambulance are excited about this most recent example of innovation through our long-standing relationship with the AEV team. This new Ford Transit Cutaway contains many safety and comfort features to best support our Paramedics and EMTs in their life-saving mission as well as the patients and families we serve,” said Mark Meijer, Founder and President of Life EMS Ambulance.

“The team at AEV is committed to meeting the evolving needs of EMS providers,” said Randy Barr, Director of Sales for AEV. “It was a pleasure to collaborate with the team at Life EMS Ambulance to design exactly what they needed while creating a template for other customers with similar needs.”

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with AEV and its customers on new and exciting features and designs to better serve the emergency vehicles market," said Joe Rudolph, Vice President of Sales for Mickey Truck Bodies. “Our exposure to their creativity and innovation enhances our own skills and ability to deliver on the value they require.”
