20 Jan Bristol VMD now sole distributor for German ambulance group in GCC
Bristol Vehicles Manufacturing Division (VMD), part of the Concorde – Corodex Group, has agreed a tie-up with the German ambulance manufacturer Ambulanz Mobile granting Bristol exclusive representation GCC-wide.
Bristol VMD, the Abu Dhabi-based rescue and safety vehicles manufacturer, has become the sole distributor for Ambulanz Mobile in the GCC. The agreement gives Bristol VMD the opportunity to customise Ambulanz Mobile vehicles according to specifications required by local emergency services including Abu Dhabi Police and Dubai Ambulance.
Bristol VMD’s is able to customise emergency vehicles at its 20,000 sqm assembly plant, testing facility and warehouse in Abu Dhabi. The vehicles will be assembled locally and fitted with medical equipment according to client demands.
“To be able to take a vehicle built by Ambulanz Mobile to the highest European safety standards and customise it according to the specifications of our local clients is an aspect of our service that we are proud of and that distinguishes us from our competitors,” said Mahmoud Awad, managing director of Concorde-Corodex Group.
“Bristol VMD is very confident that emergency services throughout the region will be hugely impressed by the design, performance and safety features of the world’s most advanced ambulance. We expect strong sales growth for Bristol VMD as a result of this partnership.”
Mr Awad highlighted the stringent crash tests that Ambulanz Mobile’s ambulances undergo at Dekra accident research facilities, ensuring that crews and patients are fully protected.
Bristol VMD sold 35 Ambulanz Mobile vehicles to Abu Dhabi Police in 2015 and the company expects the new local customisation service to trigger a spike in sales throughout the GCC.
In addition to firefighting vehicles and ambulances, Bristol VMD also offers innovative Rapid Intervention Vehicles, Service Vehicles, and Extendable Vehicles, and the highest quality of service maintenance and refurbishment for all types of vehicles.
Bristol VMD plans to expand and supply international markets such as Africa and Central Asia in the coming year.
