“…It didn’t take long to learn that the Mercedes model was making major inroads into the American ambulance industry.

“We couldn’t be happier with our Mercedes ambulances,” reports Wayne Wright, president and CEO of Ambulance Service of Manchester. “We’re happy in every respect. They handle well. Patients and our employees like them.”
