Need a fleet service partner you can count on?

The needs of your municipal and emergency fleet are very different from other nonessential heavy equipment. Time is always a critical component of every repair, rebuild, or new apparatus. Add to that the fact that today’s fleets are running leaner than ever and with fewer reserve apparatus, and the urgency is clear.

Planning a custom-build apparatus is also a process that requires a great deal of resources. It must come with the reassurance that your vehicle is built with the highest-quality materials, the most useful technology, and engineered to last.

To better serve your needs, we focus solely on fire apparatus, ambulance, and other support vehicles only. Our certified emergency vehicle technicians (EVTs) are factory trained and have the right equipment to keep your fleet at the ready for the long term.

We also provide extensive on-the-job training in combination with factory-direct training to guarantee our techs deliver exceptional results for every repair and custom fabrication request.

You need a partner who not only understands the critical nature of your industry. They must also have the skills and experience to get the job done quickly, safely, and up to all codes, regulations, and specifications the first time. We’re ready for the challenge.
