    Default Wheeled Coach Launches New Line of Rescue Vehicles

    Should be interesting to see how these hold up.....

    Wheeled Coach Launches New Line of Rescue Vehicles

    Light Duty RescueForceTM Unveiled at FDIC 2009

    Orlando, Florida – Wheeled Coach Industries, Inc. – the largest Ambulance brand in the World – has expanded their vehicle line-up with the launch of the RescueForce Series of emergency response units. The RescueForce Series leverages Wheeled Coaches’ 30 years of emergency vehicle experience and combines it with state-of-the-art engineering resources to provide departments with the confidence needed when choosing their next Rescue vehicle.
    RescueForce will be available as Light, Medium or Heavy Rescue units, Command Post, Hazmat, Light & Air units, Rehab units or other needs-based special response vehicles. RescueForce vehicles will be built in Wheeled Coaches’ ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturing plant to ensure the highest production quality and long-term reliability every time.
    “Our experience spans every size of vehicle and includes designs on Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Freightliner, Navistar and custom chassis”, per Scott Barnes, VP of Marketing and Sales, “so it was a no-brainer to leverage that experience for the growing Rescue vehicle category. And when you combine the fact we have 100’s of chassis in-stock, we have the ability of delivering vehicles faster than anyone in the industry.”
    Wheeled Coach is a wholly owned subsidiary of Collins Industries, Inc. In addition to being a leading manufacturer of ambulances (including medical attack vehicles, rescue vehicles and fire emergency vehicles), Collins Industries is North America’s largest producer of Type “A” small school buses, the nation’s second largest manufacturer of terminal trucks and a leader in the road construction and industrial sweeper markets. Since 1971, the Company has grown to approximately 1,000 employees in six plants comprising over one million combined square feet of manufacturing space. The Company sells its products throughout the United States and abroad.

    Sure there is.... the market is there, as someone will always need one.

    The same way Pierce and EOne does it for aerials. (scratch that, Pierce has aluminum ladders now, too.) :~)
