Medtec To Stop Accepting New Vehicle Orders

Announced last week, Medtec has stopped taking new ambulance orders, and its Brandenton, Florida plant, is expected to shut down completely by January 2013.

A product line of Pierce Manufacturing, Medtec has suffered from the same problems as the rest of the country of late, with shrinking municipal budgets affecting production.

The ambulance segment was relocated from Indiana and Michigan last summer in a consolidation with the existing fire truck manufacturing plant in Bradenton.

There, will be layoffs involved, however according to the Brandenton Herald, “The layoffs will begin with a gradual ramp down until all existing orders are fully met.”
