Wheeled Coach Industries, Inc., the world's largest ambulance manufacturer, has been awarded a multi-year contract by the City of New York to provide new ambulances for the Fire Department of New York (FDNY). With the initial purchase order for 56 ambulances, which stemmed from a competitive bid, the Company anticipates 285 ambulances to be delivered over the contract period.

'This is obviously a significant contract for our company. It demonstrates Wheeled Coach's commitment to our core philosophy of building heavy duty and highly customized ambulances meeting a customer's specific requirements. New York is a tough proving ground, but our engineers, craftsmen and quality systems are up to the challenge" stated Wheeled Coach's President Robert Collins.

These ambulances are based on the Dodge B4500, Quad-Cab chassis platform and incorporate the many unique structural and technical requirements of FDNY. 'As the ambulance supplier to most of America's large ambulance fleets, I am particularly excited to have this opportunity to work with the FDNY staff on this project" said Wheeled Coach's Vice President of Sales, Scott Barnes.
