Type 2 Dependability

Type 2 Ambulance Vans

There is industry standard, and then there’s AEV. While this statement applies to the way we build emergency vehicles, it also pertains to the value we pack into every Type 2 ambulance. You’ll be hard pressed to find so many high-end features in other van ambulances. There’s a reason AEV is one of the top choices among Type 2 ambulance manufacturers in the U.S., and it starts with AEV’s meticulous manufacturing process.
