Tom Shand and Mike Wilbur offer a retrospective look at 2009 and offer their wish list for the apparatus industry in 2010.
The Apparatus Architects look at the five major factors that impacted the industry in 2009. The economy, the large number of apparatus accidents and the government regulations of engines are just some of the events they discuss.
They also share their wish list for 2010, which includes the implementation of a fleet replacement plans, safe response policies, and a better understanding when evaluating bid responses and analyzing the technical portion of the spec.
Please send any apparatus specing or design questions, along with feedback to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
