Glick Fire Equipment will sell Braun ambulances to Eastern and Central PA. The dealership will also serve as a Braun Authorized Service Center.

Van Wert, OH, September 03, 2013 --( Braun Industries is pleased to announce their partnership with Glick Fire Equipment. The newest dealership to join the Braun network, Glick Fire Equipment will represent Braun ambulances in Eastern and Central Pennsylvania. The dealership will also serve as a Braun Authorized Service Center, offering a wide variety of service options to keep your emergency vehicles up and running their best.

Celebrating their 25th anniversary, Glick Fire Equipment is an established fire & EMS product and service provider in Pennsylvania. The company was initially formed as a fire apparatus dealership in 1987 by David and Sue Glick. A volunteer from a young age, Dave built a solid following of customers with his first-hand-experience, industry knowledge, and dedication to customer service. Over the years, the business steadily grew, adding new vehicle lines and enhancing their service offerings. When the couple decided to retire in 2007, they passed the business on to their three children, Jodi, Amy, and Doug. Now under the second generation of family ownership, the Glick’s continue their commitment to providing first-class products and services to fire and EMS service providers throughout the state.

When it comes to adding Braun ambulances to their already impressive lineup, Co-Owner, Amy Sweitzer, has the following to say: “We are excited to partner with Braun to represent another quality ambulance line to the EMS regions in Central and Eastern Pennsylvania. As a third generation family-owned and operated business, everyone at the Braun facility has been professional and welcoming – it is evident they realize the importance of producing a safe and reliable ambulance. Their vision of manufacturing trucks that are “Built for Life” is consistent with our vision of representing the highest quality products. We look forward to a long-standing relationship with Braun.”

“We at Braun are extremely excited to have Glick Fire Equipment as part of our dealer network family. They are a second generation family-owned business, so there are many similarities between our organizations. They focus on providing “to your door” service that is second to none in the industry, as well as providing superior solutions to their customers through their professional sales efforts. The Eastern Pennsylvania territory will be extremely happy with the level of customer service that Glick Fire brings to the table. Their core values as an organization match ours and we truly look forward to a long standing relationship with the entire Glick organization,” says Chad Brown, Braun’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

Glick Fire Equipment sales representative Chris Woolfolk will be focused on selling Braun ambulances for the dealership. Chris has 18 years of experience in the EMS industry, 5 as an EMT, and the last 13 as a paramedic. Chris has worked in a Braun ambulance himself and is excited about the opportunity to represent the brand; the quiet ride, SolidBody™ Construction, and dependability of a Braun are all important features his customers are looking for. In addition, Chris feels his customers will appreciate working with two family-owned and operated businesses to design, build, and deliver their new emergency vehicle. Chris can be reached directly by phone at (717) 380-9972 or by email at
