About Us

EVC, LLC is excited to tell you a little bit about us.  Our team works hard every day to provide high quality service to our growing customer base from through Michigan!  Don’t feel you need to be a government entity to work with us, we carry plenty of safety lighting for your plow vehicle, tow truck, or even your UTV.

Emergency Vehicle Upfitter

Opening as Cruisers West in 2014, EVC is west Michigan’s full-service emergency vehicle upfitter.  We blend law enforcement and automotive experience plus over 11 years of active involvement with the largest police fleet organization in the United States in order to build the best emergency vehicles.  Whether your agency has a complicated or “less complicated” build, EVC is dedicated to providing the very best service and the highest quality workmanship at our 4,000 square foot facility in western Kalamazoo County.


Our company also provides maintenance services to agencies, handling the replacement and repair of aging emergency equipment.  It doesn’t matter if we, or someone else installed it, we can maintain it.  We stand behind the quality of our installation services as long as you own the vehicle.  That’s confidence…that’s EVC.


As you consider EVC for your upfitting needs, we would appreciate the opportunity to quote our pricing on equipment from any of our vendor partners. If you don’t see your favorite company, EVC’s strategic partnerships with other vendors gives us access to nearly every brand available.
