Company

The BOLLANTI® brand is synonymous with Ambulance.
Since 1985 we manufacture ambulances,  and with our 22 registered patents Bollanti is the company that has revolutionized the concept of ambulance.
 
The production of the prestigious ambulance models takes place in the historic factory in Borgo San Michele (Latina- ITALY), in a modern production plant, where the fitting-out (which will then be assembled on the vehicle) composted by wall covers, furnishings and special parts is manufactured in a dedicated area for molding production.
BOLLANTI is today the only company in this field that starts and completes the production cycle. From the raw material to the finished product, within the same factory (the factory within the factory).

Ambulances have been our passion since 1968, and for over 37 years the BOLLANTI brand has been among the world leaders in the design and production of ambulances with a real high quality level.
All the people involved in the company share and actively live the same passion, always looking for  a way  of continuous improvement, always careful to use the best materials, the most performing technologies to build ambulances that will remain in business for a long time without the need of special maintenance.
Professional ambulances with an excellent degree of reliability, always ready to provide assistance alongside healthcare professionals. 

True work tools aimed at saving human lives, the noblest of gestures, which makes every person who works in the company, aware and proud to have contributed to this incredible task.
All over the world, BOLLANTI has supplied over 26 countries  with its products, and continues today to supply special parts and complete fittings in kits for the transformation of medical vehicles to strategic partners (ambulance manufactures) with production sites in: Bulgaria, Albania, Greece ,Israel, Cyprus Island, Dubai United Arab Emirates

Some milestones of our history: 
• Ambulance users since 1968, ambulance manufacturers since 1985, the first and only company in the sector that does not originate from mechanical or metal-mechanical transformations, but begins its journey from the world of health emergencies, from rescuers to producers, for this reason we know ambulances better than anyone.
• First Italian company in the ambulance field to obtain the UNI EN 1789 European certification;
• First Italian company to obtain approval for the mass production of ambulances, issued by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport.
• Bollanti was the first to implement (1994) in the production process the assembly line in stations organized by Process Team, a system later introduced by other ambulance fitters.
• Bollanti is recognized worldwide as a production company not only a transformation one, it has the most complete range of molds and models for vehicles, it was the first to introduce the concept of the modular ambulance, it makes the molds internally and prints the set-up components,
• Bollanti is the only European company to have never adopted plastic materials within its production and never to have purchased furniture and fitting components from third party suppliers for its transformations.
• First Italian company in the ambulance sector to obtain UNI EN ISO 9001 quality certification;
• First European company that designed and built (1995) the health cell applicable on the vehicle, entirely in reinforced composite, without metal bearing structures;
• First European company that designed and built (1996) the healthcare cell that can be completely removed from the vehicle chassis and stationed on the ground for hospital use.
• Bollanti is the first company in Europe to have introduced (2000) the complete automatic sanitization system of the healthcare sector, called Disigen, which can be activated from a button in the driver's cab (an electromechanical system with cyclic operation).
• Bollanti is the first company in the field to have invented and patented (2000) the "Total Control" command system, a specific panel set around the steering wheel,  which allows the driver not to take his hands off the wheel to activate the ambulance services and, avoiding getting distracted from driving.

BOLLANTI has been the first ambulance manufacturer that conforms their design to the requirements of the UNI EN1789 standard, three years before its entry into force in the Italian market. It manufactures the fitting-out components on its own with the use of low-pressure injection molding systems, in a separate environment from the assembly lines.
 
• In 1994, we organise our production according to  the culture of the "Lean Production System". 
The product is manufactured with a production process organised in linear and consecutive work-stations where each team is specialised in the relevant operation assigned to that position.
Each workstation is supplied with the MRP (Material Requirements Planning) material planning technique, the production process no longer managed by single order but by process team, which has allowed an increase in production capacity up to 21 ambulances per month. 
Along the assembly line, each Order (ambulance)  is equipped with a touch screen monitor which receives all  the technical specifications of that particular order describing how the vehicle conversion must be carried out according to the customer requirements. 
In special warehouse trolleys (that follow the vehicle in each manufacturing step), the components are arranged according to the assembly order. 
Once the transformation cycle has been completed, the ambulance undergoes quality control as well as road tests before delivery.The Quality manager carries out a thorough check by compiling a check list, noting every minimum defect, including aesthetic ones, which will be eliminated before final delivery to the customer. 
The range of ambulances and medical vehicles produced: a tangible value that lasts over time

BOLLANTI ®  Ambulances

The evolution of species is marked sometimes by unusual progress.

With more than 20 patents filed and / or issued are in fact the company that has revolutionized the concept of an ambulance. In Bollanti designing means going beyond the design, it is essential to maintain a perfect balance, that spouses convenience of the patient care, quality and reliability of the materials, their esthetic and functional ones.

The design of the components follows the logic of modern design that puts the feature as its main objective to be pursued by giving value to our products or any component of it.


We firmly believe in the concept of security, as evidenced by the careful studies and tests with virtual computer simulations, the static tensile tests on the seats and structural calculations, carried out by our designers with modern computer software CATIA V5 3D.

We have gone further and to make sure we have faced extremely ambulance and passed the most stringent tests:

• CRASH TEST entire vehicle equipped (crash test involves all the main supports and anchors)

• Certification EN 1789

• CRASH TEST for the anchorage of seats 20G (ECE R17)

• APPROVAL for the series production of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport

• QUALITY CERTIFICATION 'UNI EN ISO 9001


Our projects take shape on platforms of design and 3D solid models. The aesthetics, more accurate and refined, is the consequence of achieving the objectives of the product.


The safety before anything else
Virtual simulations guide us during the design phase and the Directive ECE R-17 crash tests have confirmed the safety of our products.
