    Although maybe old news, Oskosh Truck Corp., which made their own line of fire apparatus chassis and noted for airport crash trucks, aquired Pierce Manufacturing several years ago, which in turn recently acquired Medtec ambulance and it's sister company American Fire/Rescue of Goshen, Indiana.

    3D Fire Apparatus of Shawano, WI is now part of the American LaFrance group.

    That's all I know, unless something more recent has developed.

    There are many builders here in Wisconsin:

    Pierce<br />Seagrave<br />Alf/ 3-D<br />Marion<br />Custom Fire<br />US tanker<br />Welch<br />Monroe<br />J&B Fabricating<br />Stock Manufacturing ( builder of the newton dump)

    plus other smaller local shops

    IF something was happening ( havent seen any thing on the news only what I have seen on this Forum) I would guess Marion/Seagrave would be a good fit.

    A Marion/Seagrave combo would be interesting if it happened. If this is the Marion Body Works that builds cabs for many Companies, Spartan for one, and maybe E-One. John
