P.L. Custom Body and Equipment Co., Inc. (PLCB) is pleased to announce the addition of South Florida Emergency Vehicles (SFEV) to its growing family of distributors. SFEV will be providing sales and service to emergency services providers in the State of Florida. In addition to providing sales and service for PL Custom Emergency Vehicles, SFEV will be able to provide remounting and specialty conversions through PLCB as well.
“South Florida Emergency Vehicle is pleased to announce that we are the new representatives for PL Custom Emergency Vehicles in the state of Florida.” David Stonitsch of SFEV went on to say that, “PL Custom will provide us a high-quality line of ambulances. They are based in Manasquan, NJ, and have been in business since 1946. We feel that this will be a great addition to our Sutphen line of Fire Apparatus. Since SFEV is a family business, we felt it was important to align ourselves with family owned manufacturers. Sutphen and PL Custom both are family owned manufacturers and do business in a family-oriented atmosphere. Please contact us for your ambulance needs and let us show you the difference in dealing with family.”
According to Chad Newsome, National Sales Manager for PLCB, “David Stonitsch and his team at SFEV are a great addition to our growing dealer network. At a time of great turmoil in our industry, PLCB sees great value in partnering with a company that shares its commitment of focusing on the needs of our customers, dealers, and employees. On behalf of all of us here in Manasquan, we wish to express our thanks to South Florida Emergency Vehicles for joining our family!”
