Presenting e-Advanz in Europe

The eAdvanz electric ambulance has been on a demonstration tour in Europe since the RettMobil trade fair in Germany. Profile’s flagship from this spring has attracted a lot of interest in emergency care professionals and new eAdvanz ambulances are already entering production. The main stops on the summer tour were the Netherlands, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland and Estonia. At the end of August, eAdvanz was exhibited at the Ambulanseforum in Oslo, from where it will visit Finland and will be on display at the Veho off-road days in mid-September. This summer’s demonstration tour will end at Flisa, Emergency Care Professionals’ Fair, in northern Sweden on 20-22 September anfd from there eAdvanz will become a active member of our customers’ ambulance fleets!

The first eAdvanz ambulance has now been sold to Samariten Ambulans AB in Sweden. The ecological ambulance is ideal for urban and suburban areas, where its small and agile size is an advantage and the electric vehicle’s features can be fully exploited. eAdvanz has a range of around 300 km, depending on driving style and conditions, and can be fast-charged up to 100 km (17kWh) in around 15 minutes. The interior of the eAdvan is also build with “green” principles”, as environmentally friendly, renewable and recyclable materials are being used in the bodywork instead of traditional fibreglass.

For more information about the eAdvanz electric ambulance, please contact our Finnish Sales Manager Jari Kanninen directly (jari.kanninen@profilevehicles.com).

10 YEARS CELEBRATION OF PROFILE'S FACTORY IN HUNGARY

– Starting off the year of celebrations –

Location: BUDAPEST – KISTARCSA, Hungary
Personnel: 83 professionals
Factory capacity : 250 vehicles yearly

Ten years ago, a man named Márton László called to the former CEO Marko Repo to inform that the Hungary’s Government First Aid Services, OMSZ, will have a tender coming up for around 200 ambulances. Repo realized the real potential in this and after thorough research and skilful negotiations, Profile won the tender and quickly started the ambulance production in Budapest. With the help of László, Profile was able to create a strong and trustworthy relationship with OMSZ and has been delivering all their ambulances ever since.

In addition, during these ten years Hungary’s factory has become crucial part of the Profile Vehicles group, producing most of the Profile Vehicles ambulances and special vehicles for the European markets. All the Profile units work closely together, over the country borders. This enables easy flow of the knowhow and guarantees the Group can improve continuously its processes in each Group unit.

10 Anniversary of Hungary factory on the 25th of March is the starting point of the Profile Vehicles’ year of celebrations. Profile’s subsidiary factory in Tallinn, Estonia, will celebrate its 20-year Anniversary in May and the Profile Group will celebrate the 40-year anniversary in September. Thereby the year 2022 will bring many reasons to celebrate, as we have many new innovations on the way as well, so stay tuned!
