Sofitec starts the manufacturing and assembly of a new collection of stretchers for medical evacuation

Sofitec has delivered the first set of stretchers designed to be used for the equipment of military airplanes to hold medical evacuation and transport missions.

This first delivery is part of a whole project started in the last months of 2016, and in which Sofitec is the only supplier. The project will involve the manufacturing until 2021 of all the collections required of 8 different models of stretchers for wounded people evacuation and medical accessories transport.

The contract could be renewed in case of being a stable demand, which is expected to happen, due to new agreements signed in France for the equipment of more planes.

After the first FAI (First Article Inspection) made last week, the client formally acquired the first set of products, that will be soon shipped to its facilities.
