Meeting Industrial Demand in Fire-Rescue

We worked closely with one of America’s industry-leading fire rescue vehicle manufacturers to produce a custom firetruck boom designed to support rescue teams across the country.

As the longest running fire apparatus manufacturer in America, this industry-leading company specializes in pumper and rescue units for fire and disaster situations.
 

We were happy to partner with this organization who is dedicated to providing highly engineered heavy duty fire rescue vehicles with superior lifetime value for their customers.  Their passion for manufacturing and methodology of delivering longer lifetime value is achieved by concentrating on innovation and continuous manufacturing process improvements.  Broadwind Energy’s Industrial Fabrications division was able to match their commitment and augment their manufacturing quality with our best-in-class fabrication and welding processes.  This organization was committed to producing an articulating boom to reach six stories high as building heights increased in many communities. The firetruck boom was manufactured to provide aerial rescue and could also function in river rescue environments, helping to deliver the community with a safe and sustainable future.
