At FastLane the intention has always been to be different, to be better, to be more responsive and customer driven. No one here is ever too busy to take a call, answer a question or simply give a production tour. We are extremely proud of what we do, what we’ve become, and where we are heading.
FastLane Emergency Vehicles is a wholly owned subsidiary of Autolycus Industries Inc., a Virginia corporation. In operation since 1995 and fully incorporated in 1997, FastLane Emergency Vehicles was founded by corporate president, Robert W. Ritchie (Firefighter-Paramedic) for the sole purpose of manufacturing custom, specialty response and command vehicles for the public safety markets.
A practicing firefighter and paramedic in the state of Virginia, Robert W. Ritchie volunteers with his local rescue squad and has held many positions dealing with vehicle purchasing and maintenance. A member there since 1991, Robert knows what it is like to use a well-built emergency vehicle. This “real-world” experience is what gives him the ability to understand and construct sensible and well-built vehicles.
Robert attended Radford University of Virginia from 1990-1994 where he obtained a Bachelor of Science with a Minor in Business Administration. A background in cabinet making, computer science and engineering, Robert brings many skills to his position and ensures his ability to produce a quality product and pleasurable business experience.
