Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. Announces It Has Been Awarded Tenders For Norfolk County’s Fire Apparatus

Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. (“AFTC”) is pleased to announce they have been awarded the contract for the manufacturing of two custom fire apparatus. The Corporation of Norfolk County awarded the tender of a Custom Rescue and Commercial Pumper/Tanker to AFTC to be completed and delivered in late 2011. Manufacturing of the trucks will be at the company’s new state-of-the art plant in Arnprior, Ontario.

“Norfolk County Fire & Rescue Services is pleased to have Arnprior Fire Trucks building our newest Tanker and Rescue apparatus. The build team in Arnprior have the experience, knowledge and pride to build a truck that will be reliable and safe for our community for years to come,” stated Terry Dicks, Fire Chief of Norfolk County Fire and Rescue Services.

The new plant is in full production and is actively entering the emergency vehicle service and manufacturing sectors. AFTC boasts high end CNC machining capabilities, laser cutters, laser welders and other precision machinery. The plant operates to the high AS9100 Aerospace quality standards. AFTC shares the Plaintree resources of almost 100 employees including professional engineers, draftsmen, CAD operators, certified welders and support staff.

Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp. ( www.arnpriorfiretrucks.net ) was formed with the key employees of Seagrave Canada (formerly Almonte Fire Trucks) and they will continue building fire apparatus with the pride and quality that they have for over 20 years.

“Now that we are fully operational and producing reliable fire apparatus, we would like to welcome all former and new clients to contact us.
