Nesquehoning, PA–KME has received a purchase order from the City of New York for 2,000-gpm pumper trucks. The fire apaparatus are an award from a 2012 bid which provides the opportunity for FDNY to purchase units through November of 2015.
According to John J. Kovatch III, KME President and CEO, “I’m excited about this new relationship. We’ve studied FDNY’s needs and waited for the right time. Our team has met with City personnel several times and I’m confident that we’re a natural fit for them. I believe that our location, high level of product customization, and dedication to quality, service, and support will make us a valued, long-term supplier of apparatus.”
The engines will be built for FDNY on a KME Severe Service chassis with a stainless steel split tilt cab.
