(April 28, 2011) Crash Rescue Equipment Services, Inc. announces the sale of the SNOZZLE® (articulated aerial waterway apparatus) and all its patents to the Oshkosh Corporation.
Robert Conley, President of Crash Rescue, stated, “We are very proud to have Oshkosh as the buyer of this critical piece of ARFF technology. Grady North and Bob Relyea were instrumental in developing the market for this product within the ARFF industry and we know they are proud to see it continue with a strong owner like Oshkosh. We wanted to be a good steward of the Snozzle by finding a great home for it. We decided to do this because we needed to focus our personnel and resources on our core business, which has always been remanufacturing. Our newly ISO 9001:2008 certified remanufacturing operation provides the total remanufacturing of Airport Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicles worldwide. Our intent is to grow and further concentrate on this critically needed service for military, industrial, and commercial customers. Crash Rescue has been proud to serve our customers, and we are extremely gratified to know that the SNOZZLE® will continue to save lives, property, and keep our fire fighters safe.”
Crash Rescue will continue to supply parts for the immediate future and will honor our warranty agreements for all SNOZZLE® products sold by Crash Rescue. Please contact Crash Rescue for all outstanding SNOZZLE® quotes.
Crash Rescue remains strongly committed to continuous improvement as is evidenced by the recent ISO: 9001 Certification achieved for our remanufacturing business on April 2011. We are driven by a vision of Excellence, and, as always, focused on results.
