Sustainability

DEMERS’ SUSTAINABLE APPROACH is made up of objectives for the sustainable development of the product we manufacture and our activities’ footprint. These objectives are based on performance indicators that enable us to more than just describe our achievements.

By developing more sustainable products, we also help our customers meet their own sustainable economic, environmental and social objectives.

Our management philosophy, our over 50 years of experience in vehicle modification and manufacturing and our ongoing research and development efforts are some of the strengths that enable us to manufacture ambulances that are increasingly respectful of the environment. We contribute tirelessly to building a better future on the environmental, social and economic fronts.

Objective: Create lighter vehicles to reduce fuel consumption while allowing more space for medical equipment.

In emergency transportation, a lighter vehicle means that the crew can carry more of the equipment they need to save lives. Vehicle weight also has a direct impact on fuel consumption.

Therefore, the Demers Ambulances engineering team focuses constantly on design efficiency to make it as light as possible:

  • In the ambulance interior, front cabin and patient compartment, each particle of space is maximized and skillfully utilized.
  • High-strength aluminum and composite materials are used to significantly reduce the overall ambulance weight.
  • Module Construction in Aluminum: Ambulance modules are made of high-strength aluminum extrusions, engineered to fit perfectly together for maximum stability and strength and minimum weight.
  • Cabinet Construction: Cabinetry is built of lightweight materials combining Demers’ exclusive “Interlock” rounded aluminum extrusions with modular fiberglass cabinet inserts, shatterproof Lexan doors and aluminum panels for a safer work environment, long-lasting interior and better fuel economy.
