HME Introduces Galvanized Chassis

HME Ahrens-Fox, America’s paramount custom fire apparatus manufacturer announced a new product enhancement for the fire service with the introduction of their hot-dipped galvanized frame rails, cross members, rear support structure, tank cradles and other chassis components.

Standard paint and metal coating processes only slow the damage caused by todays Sodium and Calcium Chloride Salt Sprays. That’s why HME now offers its world-class line of custom fire apparatus chassis with a hot-dipped galvanized option at a price comparable to that of frame coatings. Nothing compares to the corrosion protection of hot-dipped galvanization.

“For those Fire Departments looking for the ultimate in corrosion protection, HME has added the option of hot dipped galvanized frames and chassis components to our product offerings” said Ken Lenz, President of HME, Inc. Lenz adds “The hot dipped galvanized coating protects your investment and apparatus budget for decades to come by preventing the corrosion that can crack frames and put your fire apparatus out of service.”

HME Ahrens-Fox offers a full line of aerial apparatus, custom and commercial pumpers, tankers, specialty pumpers and mini pumpers, which include some of the shortest wheelbase special attack pumpers in the world. The stellar company located in Wyoming, MI., has become the fastest growing, single source, custom heavy duty stainless fire and emergency apparatus manufacturer today, thanks to its diversity in products, services and customer base.
