The contract covers the central operations teams of Swedish Air Ambulance, as well as crew in the counties Värmland, Dalarna, Västerbotten and Norrbotten. SLA provides prehospital ambulance care in large parts of Sweden.
SLA also provides intensive care transports between hospitals, both within and outside connected counties. Winning the contract means that central and county-based SLA personnel will be equipped with apparel from the new EMS Collection by AUK Protection, which is specialized for crew needs both during flights and during work at accident sites.
“It feels amazing and inspiring to welcome Swedish Air Ambulance to the AUK family. The process of further optimizing the apparel for SLA operations has already begun,” said Johan Baumann, co-owner and client manager of AUK Protection.
Meeting high demands of crews
The apparel must meet the high demands of the crews and remain comfortable, efficient and modern. The majority of the fabrics are sourced from within EU, where all of AUK’s production takes place. The launch of the EMS Collection is one step in the mission of AUK Protection to improve everyday conditions for those working in and around helicopters.
“During the development of the EMS Collection the challenges have been many and exciting. Our own experiences as aviators have been useful, but the close collaboration with medical helicopter crews from around Europe has been invaluable. This makes us proud and confident in the launch of the EMS Collection,” said Baumann.
The contract period with Swedish Air Ambulance is two years.
