    I highly doubt that is Pierce... the paperwork makes this company in question look rather small. The marketing company is out of Minneapolis, MN.
    HME?
    Rosenbauer?
    SEAGRAVE?
    Toyne?

    My guess is Seagrave since they have done things that make it look like they are shutting down, or transitioning in some way.

    HME is not visible from a major highway.

    Toyne are there any highways in Breda?

    I was thinking Segrave or Midwest.

    Question

    Since the marketing company is in Mn, how about Crimson. After all, Spartan just jetisoned the ambulance division?

    But the add did say "affordable". I was be surprised if it were Seagrave, their products are not typically known as that.

    custom fire's place is not exactly "eye catching" with a "modern showroom", nor is it ugly and outdated. But you never know what a marketing co would say to attract clients.

    Seagrave is not near a major highway either.

    I'd bet Midwest. It's right off I-90 and has new product lines.

    I bet you are right... that's the only one that fits the bill.

    They also have a modern facility that looks mostly empty to accommodate sales growth, and are a leader in "niche market". (tankers) It also says "volunteer departments".

    What about Wolverine? It is off of a major road, not an interstate though.

    I know some of the Crimson Aerials guys went to the auction in Ephrata. The end is near for ALF. It still looks like there's still a good possibility that Crimson will move from Lancaster to Ephrata as soon as the plug is officially pulled on ALF. When this happens it will be sort of like an LTI reunion up in Ephrata.

    Hopefully they can, and will bring it back.

    I agree with Midwest Fire. Nice new facility that sits just North of I-90 and they recently introduced their pumper line.

    Just curious, is Midwest Fire in the old Luverne fire apparatus facility before they moved over to Brandon SD years back?

    Don't think so. Their facility looks to be fairly new.

    I heard through the grapevine about Pierce today... Their fiscal year ends sometime in September and they will actually post a profit. However, they ran with overtime and built through their truck order list and it seems as if they do not have anything after October. You would think that with them posting a profit, their stock would go up, but it has actually been going down. This seems planned out and I am curious what they would be aligning for? Possibly a spin off? Possibly sold off? Possibly shut down completely?

    This was all secondhand info, but interesting nonetheless.
