Emirates Motor Company (EMC) Daimler Commercial Vehicles has supplied 100 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans converted into ambulances to the Emirate’s National Ambulance Company (NAC).

Bilal Al Ribi, GM of EMC, said: “We are proud to have once again joined forces with NAC to equip 100 vans with the latest technology. This alliance is the perfect synergy as the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is known as one of the safest and most reliable vans in the world.”

Robert Ball, CEO National Ambulance, stated that the Sprinter was indeed the top choice due to both its high degree of safety and EMC’s past support of NAC in terms of fleet and service maintenance.

Henrique Pimentel, product manager for vans at Daimler Commercial Vehicles MENA, added: “The partnership between the NAC and EMC highlights both corporations’ goals to provide the absolute best for patients and clients, respectively.”

The deal was announced at The Arab Health Expo recently held in Abu Dhabi.
