Demers Ambulances is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a major contract by the Corporation d'Urgence-santé for the design and manufacture of 40 MX163 ambulances running on the General Motors' 4500 diesel chassis.
The vehicles will be deployed on the territory served by the Corporation d'Urgence-santé in Montreal and Laval, an area with the second highest population density in Canada.
The contract was awarded following a process of open tender, launched last July 23. Demers Ambulances won the contract based on its ability to meet the technical, certification, delivery and technical support and warranty objectives, required by the customer.
"This award reflects our expertise in the design and manufacture of ambulances and our ability to meet the specific needs of our clients," said Alain Brunelle, President and CEO of Demers Ambulances. "We are proud of having won this new contract with Corporation d'Urgence-santé. We have a long history of collaboration with this client, and are delighted by the confidence they have shown in us once again."
Delivery of the vehicles is planned for the first quarter of 2013.
