Press Release Jan 28, 2013

Van Wert, OH - Braun Industries is excited to announce that Emergency Equipment Professionals will be representing the brand in Alabama and Mississippi.

The custom emergency vehicle manufacturer is pleased to offer enhanced service to their existing customer base in the region through the partnership with Emergency Equipment Professionals, as they will serve as a Braun Authorized Service Center. They are also looking forward to expanding the brand and obtaining new ambulance customers with the help of the local dealership.

"Always seeking out new and better ways to serve the emergency vehicle market, Braun is truly excited about our partnership with Emergency Equipment Professionals. As a family-owned and operated company, we instantly found common ground with EEP. Under the leadership of husband and wife team, Jeff and Mary Kuntz, we identified with their commitment to selling high quality products and offering the highest level of customer service before and after the sale. We know they stand by their word and will work hard to find the right ambulance to meet their customers' needs and budgets. We believe Braun ambulances are the perfect complement to their existing lines, and we are energized by the opportunity to work with them to grow the Braun brand in Alabama and Mississippi," says Braun VP of Sales & Marketing, Chad Brown.

When considering to take on the Braun ambulance line, owner of Emergency Equipment Professionals, Jeff Kuntz, had the following to say: "Braun seemed to be very customer focused and committed to building the best product. Also, the construction methods that Braun uses to build its ambulances are similar to what we are familiar with through Pierce fire apparatus. We pride ourselves on selling quality products. After looking at the Braun product line and visiting the manufacturing facility, we decided that Braun would be a good fit for our company. They allow us to have continuity in our sales efforts by offering the best in the market. The process to come onboard has been excellent. Once again, it is very evident that quality and customers drive what Braun does. We look forward to working with them and growing together in our territory."

Emergency Equipment Professionals is excited to offer high quality, custom ambulances through their dealer agreement with Braun Industries. They believe that the Braun Chief XL and Liberty models will be the best received in the region. They are good, solid emergency vehicles that feature countless customization options.
