    Press release from 7/14/10 -

    E-ONE Invests in New York Facility
    and Launches Stainless Steel Product Line


    Ocala, FL (July 14, 2010) – Market-leading fire apparatus manufacturer, E-ONE, Inc., opens a new 75,000 square foot facility in Hamburg, New York. The facility will specialize in manufacturing stainless steel apparatus, refurbishment, technical service and support.

    E-ONE has appointed Bill Savage, a 30-year industry veteran and expert in stainless steel fire apparatus design and manufacturing, as president of the New York facility. Savage has assembled a highly-experienced team to support new and existing E-ONE customers.

    “The New York based team is proud to be joining the E-ONE family and we are looking forward to complementing E-ONE’s existing products by providing the industry’s best stainless steel apparatus to customers throughout the nation,” said Bill Savage, president of E-ONE New York. “We have been manufacturing and refurbishing stainless steel apparatus for more than 20 years and are excited about working closely with E-ONE dealers and customers.”

    This announcement comes on the heels of the Water Master™ vacuum tanker product acquisition which was announced just over a year ago and furthers the organizations goals of investing in innovative products and expanding its factory service capabilities to enrich E-ONE’s leading market position and further the company’s ability to serve fire departments throughout North America and in more than 40 countries worldwide.

    “We are thrilled not only to be re-launching our stainless steel product line, but to also offer a refurbishment and service location for our dealers and customers in the Northeast and Midwest,” said Peter Guile, President and CEO of E-ONE, Inc. “The leadership of Bill Savage at our New York facility combined with his highly-skilled team provides unparalleled expertise and ensures confidence in our ability to build stainless steel apparatus of the highest quality alongside our industry-leading line of aluminum fire apparatus. We are delighted to have Bill be a part of our management team.”

    Since returning to private-ownership in 2008, E-ONE has transformed its manufacturing processes to produce the highest quality apparatus in the industry, resulting in the majority of the 2010 deliveries having zero defects per unit during customer final inspections. Investments in innovative products have also produced 11 new or improved apparatus designs, including the Tradition ES pumper and rescue pumper, HP 78, low travel height aerial cab, severe duty cab interior, and a revised rear-mount pump module.

    Ongoing new product innovation, tireless focus on quality, acquisition of the WaterMaster™ vacuum tanker product line and the opening of a dedicated stainless steel manufacturing facility, continue to demonstrate E-ONE’s commitment to the fire service.
    For more information on the new E-ONE stainless steel trucks and the full line of E-ONE apparatus visit www.E-ONE.com.

    As a leading manufacturer of first responder vehicles, E-ONE engineers, manufactures and markets mission-critical vehicles including custom and commercial pumpers tankers, Water Master vacuum tankers, aerial ladders and platforms, command and communication apparatus, quick attack units, industrial trucks, and aircraft rescue firefighting vehicles. The company sells its products world-wide and is headquartered in Ocala, Florida. E-ONE is an ISO 9001 registered and CCC certified manufacturer. For more information, visit www.e-one.com.

    Maybe this S/S venture for E-One will work out better than their last one when they bought out Saulsbury years back. I wonder if the E-One facility in Hamburg is truly a "new" facility or if they are using the old RD Murray/ALF facility that closed down last year.

    That's what I thought. I would also like to think that the many of the employees that will work at this new E-One plant used to work at the Hamburg facility or even possibly at Saulsbury in Preble before it closed.

    The only reason anyone would open a new mfg facility in NY is to tap into a unique trained work force. One of the most antibusiness states in the US. There are a thousand econ development groups that would put up a new building to meet your needs.

    I wish them luck, its always nice to read a story about someone adding a new line of products instead of someone shutting their doors.
    I have only 2 allegiances, to my country and to my God. The rest of you are fair game.

    RD Murry built a hell of a truck. With Bill Savage back at the helm I'm sure that will continue.

    So I suppose this will be bad luck to E-One as well, as following the other at that plant.

    Like firepiper1 said: Give them a chance.

    It is at least creating employment for some New Yorkers who lost jobs when ALF closed it down.

    The local papers reported a few months back that Savage when to the local town board and was trying to extend the tax abatements and other tax incentives they got during the alf years on the property. Apparently they must have been successful.

    it has a antibusiness tax structure, but if you relocate there the economic development groups will give you tons of tax breaks and variances. Then you just relocate once those expire.

    Pretty much the game. Steal from your neighbors. IF you can get key employees to move with you.

    If the econ dev people would put the effort into developing homegrown business and conviencing the socialists in the various statehouses to becoming PRO business then they would accomplish something meaningful (raises all boats).

    We've had e-ones for years....and one kme, the only one that i would truly classify as a turd would be the KME, wich, for the second time in the 3 years we've had it has developed body cracks, and like before can't get it fixed.... we are on month 3 since they were discovered and still no response from the local service center or corporate.
    It takes a little intelligence to enjoy humor,satire & wit, but none to be offended by it.

    Does a "stainless turd" mean you don't need TP?

    And RoofTopTrucky, don't worry about FWD's opinion, he's just had a little too much cool-aid tonight and can't be objective about some other brands of apparatus
