“We’re happy to welcome Kodiak to our dealer group,” said Benoit Lafortune, Executive Vice-President at Demers Ambulances. “Kodiak’s focus on offering the highest quality products and service to fire departments and EMS customers makes their organization a perfect addition to the Demers dealer network. We’re confident that Kodiak will provide an unmatched level of sales and support for customers in this important region.”

“Everyone at Kodiak Emergency Vehicles is excited to be the Michigan Dealership representing Demers Ambulances and Braun Industries”, said Ahren Taszreak, VP of Sales and Operations.  “I had the opportunity to work directly for Demers in the past and I understand firsthand how their products stack up against the competition.  A Demers Ambulance offers a lot of standard options, such as their EcoSmart technology, aerodynamic and lightweight designs, and no use of wood in their ambulance body.  The Demers Ambulance body is engineered, built, and tested like the processes Ford and GM use versus one-off, cell-built bodies and offer us a new era of ambulance design”.  Mr. Taszreak added, “Along with some of the most stringent safety testing in the industry, the Demers ambulance is going to allow Kodiak Emergency Vehicles to offer all EMS providers in Michigan a great product, that helps reduce overall costs, and at a great price.”
