Braun Announces New Dealer in Michigan

Braun Industries is proud to announce that Kodiak Emergency Vehicles will be joining their nationwide network of first-class ambulance dealers.

Like Braun, the new dealership is a family-owned and operated business. Located in the heart of the state, Kodiak Emergency Vehicles will represent Braun throughout Michigan. They will carry the complete lineup of Braun ambulances, as well as offer convenient door-to-door service options to help maintain and repair vehicles.

Kodiak Emergency Vehicles is located in Lansing, Michigan. While the dealership is relatively new to the EMS industry, Vice President of Sales & Operations, Ahren Taszreak, is not. In partnership with his wife, the team has over 15 years of industry experience.

Prior to opening Kodiak, Ahren spent time working for several leading emergency vehicle manufacturers. Identifying a void in the Michigan market for a locally-based dealership focused on selling only the finest in ambulance design, the couple established Kodiak Emergency Vehicles.

It is Ahren's accumulated knowledge from his time in the industry that helps distinguish his dealership from the competition. Having spent much of his previous positions focused on the bid specification and the build process of a unit, Ahren understands exactly what is needed from a customer the first time around to design and build the perfect ambulance.

Furthermore, he knows that partnering with high-quality manufacturers, like Braun, is paramount to delivering a unit that will exceed customer expectations and stand up to the rigorous demands of the road.

When asked, Ahren had the following to say about his new partnership with Braun Industries: "Braun's SolidBody Construction is truly unique and produces one of the finest boxes on the market. I tell my customers one of the most enlightening things they can do in the process of purchasing a new ambulance is to tour the manufacturing facility. Getting an inside look at the manufacturer's operation speaks volumes. With Braun, seeing the box being welded instills peace of mind for the end-user that they are making the right chose by purchasing a Braun, and that's very important to me."

With each new dealer the manufacturer adds, the Braun family grows. They are particularly excited about bringing on Kodiak Emergency Vehicles to serve their customers right next door in Michigan.

Chad Brown, Braun Vice President of Sales & Marketing, had the following to say about Kodiak: "I am pleased to announce the addition of Kodiak Emergency Vehicles to the Braun Industries dealer network. Ahren and his wife, Katie, have a passion for this industry that is second to none. They not only provide sales to their customers, but also have a customer service side of their business which includes "door-to-door" service and remounting capabilities. Their focus on customer relationships and service make Kodiak Emergency Vehicles and Braun a perfect match!"

The new dealer's sales territory includes the entire state of Michigan. Notable Braun customers in the region are: Delta Township, Meridian Fire, Grosse Ile Fire, Summerfield Township, Bloomfield Township, Inkster Fire Department, Luce Co Ambulance Service, and Bruce Romeo Fire Dept.

Kodiak looks forward to the opportunity of working with Braun to expand this customer base and educate EMS providers in the region that Braun ambulances are truly "Built for Life."
