Horton Emergency Vehicles
Established in 1968, Horton Emergency Vehicles has positioned itself as a leading manufacturer of custom-built ambulances. The company’s goal is to produce the world’s safest and most innovative ambulances through extensive testing and high standards for quality and customer satisfaction.
Today, Horton is the industry leader in medium-duty ambulances. Its products are able to withstand a 90,000-pound load test, are equipped with VI-Tech mounting to isolate vibration and noise, and feature an exclusive rollover occupant protection system. Horton sells locally in Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, and it distributes product on a wider level through the support of its dealer network.
“We now have around 400 employees in two locations,” Vice President of Engineering and Research and Design Eric Fisher says. “We serve the entire country, and we’ve done some work in South America, Europe and the Middle East. Our customers include municipalities, fire departments and some hospitals. The customer base varies, as some have small fleets while others have fleets of up to 100 trucks.”
