A Suffolk lorry company is providing mechanics to help keep ambulances on the road during the coronavirus crisis.
ChassisCab, a family-owned DAF truck dealership based in Great Blakenham, near Ipswich, has sent two of its HGV technicians to work at the East of England Ambulance Service’s workshop servicing ambulances and paramedic’s vehicles.
Robert Baxter, ChassisCab managing director, said: “We feel privileged to be able to help the NHS in some way during these unprecedented times. Providing our specialist technicians to help with the workload when the Trust was experiencing staff shortages was an easy choice to make.
“The outbreak is having an impact on the way we do business but we have a structure in place to continue delivering support to our customers who need us now more than ever.
“It is our commitment to provide our employees with safe work environments, so that our people can continue to deliver an exceptional level of service and support to the business owners throughout our region.
“We are working as efficiently as we can still continuing to provide servicing including inspections, repairs and parts to keep the essential services moving while the outbreak continues and we thank all our staff for their exceptional efforts.”
