At Braun Industries, Inc., building custom handcrafted ambulances isn’t just a business, it’s a way of life. Founded in 1961 by Charles J. Braun, Braun Industries was initially a pattern shop. In the 1970s, the company identified the ever-growing need for a high quality, custom built product in the ambulance marketplace. Leveraging their existing technologies as a pattern shop, Braun set out to expand their product offerings and establish themselves as a leading US ambulance manufacturer.

From 1961 to 2018, Braun Industries was family-owned and operated. In 2018, they joined Demers Ambulances to create Demers-Braun, a merger of the two largest independent family-based ambulance manufacturers in North America. Their commitment to safety, quality and innovation crosses brands, along with their dedication to maintaining the culture of family business. Today, Braun Industries is under third generation leadership with Kim Braun as President.
