Cartwright showcases ambulance conversion and welfare vehicle

The company showcased its NETS (non-emergency transport service) Fiat Ducato vehicle which has been converted by Cartwright for London Ambulance.

The fully equipped vehicle includes a stretcher, wheelchairs and facilities for attendants.  The rear of the vehicle can accommodate four passengers plus one attendant and two staff in the front cab.

Also on the stand was the company’s new type-approved welfare vehicle from Cartwright Conversions. This has been designed to be both robust, light and durable yet offers a greater payload to allow more freedom and flexibility over the type and amount of equipment which can be carried.

The vehicle includes a smart-charging battery system that ensures the van’s main battery is never drained dry by the vehicle’s on-board facilities, cameras with infra-red sensors for night driving, a reversing camera and white noise reversing alarms as standard as well as a microwave, hot water boiler, toilet and USB charging points.

The vehicle seats seven people as standard, with the option of adding a tip up seat to safely accommodate an eight person.

Rich Anderson, Cartwright’s sales and marketing director, commented: “We received a great response at the show.

“We are extremely proud of both our NETS and welfare vehicles both of which demonstrate the level of manufacturing expertise we are able to offer.  We have a team of professionals who have a wide range of skills and experience that can match any manufacturer in the industry.”
