'To validate the Company's designs and engineering processes we have applied published testing criteria to the actual ambulances we manufacture every day. Sometimes it is not enough to only utilize a computer model for this important data. As the largest manufacturer of ambulances in America we feel dynamic testing and independent laboratory certification is very important to our customers. This is merely another step within our Company to ensure that we produce the finest and most reliable ambulance available" said Scott Barnes, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
