The MAF mission is to continue the tradition on developing the design, the manufacturers, the foreign markets on increasing its presence in its field around the world. The vehicles created in MAF are now on service in Europe and in the Middle-East Area.
“Abroad, design is the great excellence of MAF, because it represents an added value which was developed after 40 years of work and passion” explains MAF Sales Director, Enrico Bagagli.
Above ergonomics, simplicity of use and strength, there is a vast range of vehicles at customers disposal. “We have 8 ambulance models, because MAF aims to supply everyone. We cannot say to a customer ‘we do not have a product suitable for you’, so we decided to expand as best as we could our line”.
“We aim to be helpful in several situations, that is why we have both van-based and fibreglass or ABS set up ambulances available. Although we dispose of two strategies abroad: the first one is the typical final vehicle sale, the second one – which is very much appreciated -, inspired us to install the sanitary compartment onto our partners’ vehicles. In this second solution, MAF organize specific working teams with our expert workers, who help our customers to operate in the best way, allowing them the assembly of the ambulances”.
The difference between MAF and the international competitors is known and remarkable: “Our design concept for the EMS vehicles has generated a high interest. Above taste in aesthetic and 40 years-experience, this is one of our features, which persuaded us in producing ambulances even more sturdy and smart”.
These concepts are tied to MAF vehicles beauty, which brings always more interest in developing countries.
