BELGRADE, MT AND NEW HOLLAND, PA—Acela Truck Company and Fire Line Equipment recently announced a strategic partnership to distribute Acela Monterra extreme-duty, high water/flood recue trucks. The two companies are partnering to offer capable high water flood rescue trucks and wildland fire trucks, expanding Acela Truck Company’s growing distribution footprint and Fire Line Equipment’s growing product offerings.
“Fire Line Equipment is excited to add the Acela Monterra line of high-water flood rescue trucks to our product offerings”, says Ron Fink, Fire Line Equipment Partner. “With flooding events becoming almost commonplace, Fire Line Equipment has recognized an increasing demand for more purpose-built flood rescue trucks. After an exhaustive search, we found the Acela Monterra to be the best solution in the market today. Our customers demand modern, comfortable, safe and purpose-built solutions. Most are tired of repurposing and maintaining old and unreliable surplus military trucks. The Acela Monterra, with its 46-inch tires, all-wheel-drive, 50-inch water fording capability and central tire inflation system has proven to be the perfect solution for flood rescue response and can easily serve double-duty as a wildland/brush truck outside of flood/hurricane season.”
“We’re thrilled to have Fire Line Equipment representing our high-mobility Monterra flood rescue trucks and truck chassis lines into the firefighting market,” says David Ronsen, president of Acela Truck Company. “Fire Line Equipment understands the needs of their customers and has a reputation as one of the highest quality fire truck dealers in the U.S. By working together, an increasing number of fire departments will be able to significantly increase their response capabilities with our high-mobility trucks.”
