A Dream, a Project, a Reality
Making a difference since 1976


Auto Ribeiro started transforming hearses in a 300 m2 garage, which soon became too small for the volume of orders and necessitated the acquisition of a warehouse of 1000m2 .While continuing to transform hearses, the need was felt to innovate and explore a new market.

To this end, the company founder, António Ribeiro, decided to alter the business direction and develop an industrial complex. In 1986 the company started transforming ambulances, resulting from an analysis of the market and its growing needs.
