KIMTEK Corporation was founded in 1984 as a research and development company dedicated to advances in life safety technology in the fire sciences by founder and president, Kimball Johnson. Mr Johnson was a volunteer Ambulance EMT with 10 years serving the most rural portions of Northern Vermont USA. He was a volunteer fire fighter for over 9 years. When looking for a rescue trailer, or slide in unit for his department he saw advantages and disadvantages to the current models on the market and felt there could be a better design. He and his team of designers set out to come up with a rugged, lightweight and affordable rescue unit and the MEDLITE Transport was born!
Here at Quad Medical we admire Mr Johnson's commitment and determination, by refusing to accept the status quo and bringing solutions to the market he has advanced the safety of how medical cover can be provided in any terrain. Mr Johnson knows the need to have the right equipment to get the job done right and safely, values shared by Quad Medical. This has helped make KIMTEK the largest manufacturer of UTV/ATV skid units in the US, and an approved supplier for Quad Medical.
