The Safest Emergency Response Vehicles in Europe

Health is second to none.

That is why we take your safety so seriously. We do not consider ourselves satisfied with the current standards and specifications, and go further in setting new standards in vehicle safety. Be it MICA (Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance, PTA (Patient Transport Ambulance), AA (Adapted Automobile), or EDC (Emergency Doctor’s Car), your maximum safety is our goal in case of an accident.
We have have been subjecting our products to dynamic testing from 1999. With over 100 tests carried out (as of 2016), we are leaders in vehicle safety of emergency response vehicles. The high level of expertise in this area helps us to make our vehicles safer. So that you can feel safe and secure.
