“We have the best dealer network in the industry and it’s always nice to be able to take a moment out of our busy schedules to recognize and honor their efforts,” said Sam Iain, E-ONE’s vice president of global sales and distribution. “From bid opening to final delivery and service after the sale, our dealers’ and sales representatives’ hard work and long hours are a huge part of the reason our customers continue to rely on E-ONE.”

Dealerships taking top honors were:

• Dealership Sales Excellence Award – Fire Service Inc., Greenwood Emergency Vehicles, Hall-Mark Fire Apparatus Inc. and Sunbelt Fire Techno Feud Inc.

• Dealer Achievement Award – Fire Service Inc.

• Dealer Parts Sales Award – Hall-Mark Fire Apparatus Inc.

• Customer Service Award –Chief Fire & Safety Co. Inc., Fire line Inc., Greenwood Emergency Vehicles and Sunbelt Fire

Sales representatives honored were as follows:

• Regional Sales Excellence Award – Randy Powell of Advantech Service & Parts (Mid-Atlantic Region); Tom Pour of Banner Fire Equipment Inc. (North-Central Region); Curtis Go of Sunbelt Fire (South-Central Region); Bertrand Bouchard of Techno Feud Inc. (Northeast Region); and Nate Gilman of Hall-Mark Fire Apparatus Inc. (Southeast Region)

• Sales Achievement Award for the Stainless Steel Product – John Buckley of Greenwood Emergency Vehicles

Also, E-ONE, through Techno Feud Apparatus Maintenance, has been awarded a two-year, multi-truck contract with the Department of National Defense (DND) Canada.

“We are very excited that DND has trusted E-ONE to meet their emergency apparatus needs yet again,” said RJ Jones, E-ONE’s manager for U.S. Government and Airport Products Sales. “We’re in the process of completing an order for 24 4x4 aircraft rescue and firefighting (ARFF) vehicles, along with this latest pumper order. Sales to DND for E-ONE trucks have totaled 48 units in the last five years.”

The initial order has been placed for six Cyclone II top-mount enclosed custom pumpers featuring E-ONE’s cold-weather package. Up to six more pumpers may be ordered during the duration of the two-year contract.

 

EAGLE COMPRESSORS INC., manufacturer of high-pressure breathing air systems and components designed to refill SCBA and SCUBA cylinders, has promoted Becky Dreier to vice president, finance. In addition to managing all aspects of accounting and finance work, in her new position she will coordinate external auditor statement reviews and oversee all administrative departments, material handling and warehouse operations. She formerly was finance manager.

“It is a special privilege to add Becky to an already strong and experienced management team at Eagle,” said Anthony M. Gonzalez, president of Eagle. “In working closely with her for many years, she has earned my respect and confidence in her business acumen, ethics and outstanding work in her field. Her talents and integrity will contribute significantly to the success of our company.”

 

PIERCE MANUFACTURING has received an order for 10 fire apparatus from Polk County, FL, Fire Rescue. The purchase includes five pumpers, a 100-foot Pierce aerial platform and a heavy-duty rescue/hazmat vehicle, all built on the Pierce Velocity chassis, as well as three tandem rear-axle tanker/pumpers.

“Polk County Fire Rescue became a new Pierce customer just over two years ago, and this significant new purchase is a direct result of how our first vehicles have performed on front line duty over that time,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corp. executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “We are proud to be selected to build these 10 new apparatus for one of Florida’s largest fire departments.”
