Braun Ambulances

Braun Industries, Inc., designs custom-handcrafted ambulances with premium quality. With more than 45 years of manufacturing experiece, Braun has continually evolved the safety and funcationality of its ambualnces.


Why Invest in a Braun Ambulance

Braun ambulances are unique because of their SolidBody™ Construction, a process which eliminates a separate extruded frame. All Braun body components are built into one integrated module. Produced with .125” flat-sheet marine grade aluminum, the floor, roof, sides and doors are all constructed from brake formed parts with fully welded seams. This construction process reduces weight and adds exceptional strength.

With more than seven models to chose from and countless customization options, departments can design ambulances that fit their needs. 


The Braun Experience


When purchasing a Braun ambulance from Ten-8, the purhcasing department will attend a pre-construction meeting at Braun. This allows the customers a behind-the-scenes look at the manufacturing facility, as well as an opportunity to sit down with Braun engineers to finalize a design. The result is a set of very detailed concept drawings and an itemized quotation that solidifies Braun’s expertise as a leader in the ambulance market. Finished vehicles also come with as built electrical schematics and a parts bill of materials for easy maintenance and repair.
