Demers Company Timeline
The company had its humble beginnings in a Canadian cart and buggy shop, where the Demers family was already manufacturing funeral hearses and ambulances. Today, Demers is the oldest continuous ambulance manufacturer in North America.
At the turn of the 20th century, the Demers workshop produced vehicles for the growing transportation needs of an increasingly industrialized Canada and the emerging automotive age. That early involvement in transportation was to become a family tradition and vision for the next 60 years. In the industry today, Demers Ambulances is probably the only manufacturer that can truly trace its heritage back to its original buggy shop in the 1800s.
