Pierce Manufacturing Inc., North America’s largest manufacturer of fire and rescue apparatus, has completed a territory change in its dealer network for Canada.
Darch Fire Inc., centrally located in Ayr, Ontario, has assumed responsibility for the province of Ontario, becoming an authorized dealer offering sales and service for Pierce and Contender by Pierce fire apparatus.
“Darch Fire’s sound industry knowledge and commitment to customer service makes them the right dealer to bring Pierce products to Ontario,” said Pierce President Wilson Jones. “Pierce continues to build on its best-in-class dealer and distribution network by bringing a first-rate dealer on board who can grow and expand our presence in this territory.”
Darch Fire has been in the fire service since 1993, specializing in emergency vehicle sales, parts and service, as well as offering an extensive line of fire and rescue equipment.
“We are proud to join the Pierce network of dealers and to serve the fire departments of Ontario,” said John Darch, president of Darch Fire. “Through this partnership, we can provide our customers with industry leading apparatus that will help them better protect their communities.”
Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation company based in Appleton, Wis., makes custom and commercial pumpers, aerials, rescue trucks, wildland trucks, minipumpers, elliptical tankers, and homeland security apparatus. Pierce designs its own foam systems and was the first company to introduce frontal air bags and the Side Roll Protection system to fire apparatus.
