Ford and Venari Group today announced they have signed a memorandum of understanding for a new alliance to take cooperation between the two businesses on emergency vehicles to the next level.
The Ford Venari Alliance plans to manufacture the all-new, lightweight front-line ambulance - unveiled by Ford and Venari earlier this year. Based on the Ford Transit chassis cab and developed under "Project Siren", the lightweight ambulance was designed with input from industry experts and front-line medical teams. The Ford Venari lightweight ambulance is intended to be produced at a new facility in Ford Dagenham from 2022, utilising an existing, non-production location that will be refreshed to accommodate its manufacturing requirements. It is anticipated that the new business will create around 100 new jobs once production begins in 2022.
Integral to Ford Pro, Ford's new business for distribution and services, the Ford Venari Alliance marks the start of plans to grow and develop opportunities with key conversions partnerships, ensuring customers from every vocation have access to specialised vehicles.
