“Medix may be small, but it’s not small time. With the big corporates, they’re big on putting your vehicle or your ambulance underneath good show lights. But when you start really looking at it, there’s no quality there. So there may not be that giant showroom at Medix…but it shows up in the quality and that’s where you want it.”
