New Pierce Saber and Enforcer Custom Chassis Quickly Reach and Surpass Sales Milestones

February 25, 2015

 APPLETON, Wis. (February 25, 2015) – Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, reports that sales of its newest custom chassis – the Pierce® Saber® and Enforcer™ – have quickly reached, and are surpassing important milestones. In December 2014, the 100th custom apparatus was purchased by the Ormond Beach Fire Department in Florida. Introduced in March 2014, Pierce Saber and Enforcer orders continue to ramp upward and now total more than 150 vehicles sold.

Atlantic Emergency Solutions:

"Achieving these sales milestones 10 months from the launch of the new Saber and Enforcer chassis is a tremendous accomplishment, and we continue to see strong growth among departments large and small, from coast to coast,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “The new Saber and Enforcer are further proof positive that Pierce continues to deliver industry-leading performance, reliability and value across the widest range of custom chassis.”

“As with many fire departments, exercising fiscal responsibility is a top priority when making large purchases,” said Battalion Commander Nate Quartier of the Ormond Beach Fire Department. “The Pierce Saber pumper’s standard features allowed us to keep additional costs down without sacrificing the quality and durability of the materials. It’s a win-win for our department and our community.”

Developed with assistance and input from fire departments nationwide, the Saber custom chassis sets the performance edge in the industry standard category, yet retains the simple, straightforward, and durable features for which it’s long been known. The Enforcer chassis offers a wider range of configurations and an unmatched selection of options – including TAK-4® independent suspension and the Pierce exclusive DD13 big-block engine.

The Pierce Saber pumper for Ormond Beach includes seating for four firefighters and a cab rear wall featuring a patented design that allows departments to easily reposition the seating configuration in minutes. The vehicle also offers a 22-inch front bumper extension, full height and full depth compartments, adjustable shelves and floor-mounted slide out trays, and a backboard storage compartment located over the pump. The vehicle’s firefighting system includes a 1,250-GPM single-stage pump, a 500-gallon water tank, and Pierce’s Control Zone™ side control pump panel.

“Continuing to provide prompt and efficient service – with an increasing call volume – is one of the main response challenges for our department,” added Commander Quartier.  “The Pierce Saber’s roomy cab allows us to have more interior space without sacrificing overall apparatus width or length. This larger cab allowed for the addition of a generous EMS cabinet inside, and the rear wall seating configuration system will enable us to adapt the cab to future seating and storage needs.”Located in northeastern Volusia County on Florida’s Atlantic coast, Ormond Beach has a population of approximately 40,000 residents within a 40-square-mile protection area. The department’s wide-ranging response area includes residential neighborhoods, historic homes, large apartment complexes, and beachfront high-rises, as well as industrial parks, several major highways, and a large wildland interface and coastal peninsula. Services delivered include fire protection, advanced life support, disaster preparedness and response, fire and life safety education, hazardous materials response, and technical rescue. The department also provides automatic aid with neighboring cities and unincorporated areas of Volusia County.

Prince George's County places pink Pierce® pumper, "Courage," into service today to promote cancer awareness



YORKTOWN, VIRGINIA, September 30, 2014 – Atlantic Emergency Solutions, Inc. (Atlantic) and Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, has delivered a Pierce® Velocity™ pumper to Prince George’s County, Maryland Fire/EMS Department (PGFD) located in Largo, Maryland.  Nicknamed “Courage” through a contest conducted through the department’s social media outlets, it is one of six Pierce apparatus recently purchased by the department.  PGFD chose to have the pumper painted pink with a lavender stripe – the first ever new Pierce vehicle so painted – as a way to promote its campaign to fight breast cancer and all other types of cancer.

 

The apparatus was introduced today during a dedication ceremony at the department’s Capitol Heights station where it is now on frontline duty.  Apparatus dealer, Atlantic Emergency Solutions, joined county dignitaries and local politicians, as well as representatives from the American Cancer Society and Pierce Manufacturing at the ceremony.

 

“This new Pierce pumper expands a conversation between our department and the citizens of Prince George’s County; it’s a real community relations builder,” said Fire Chief Marc Bashoor of PGFD.  “When we ordered these six Pierce apparatus, the decision was made to paint one of the pumpers pink in order to build momentum for our ongoing cancer awareness program.  The typical reaction we get is that of amazement, but the underlying goal is to encourage citizens to get screened and tested on a regular basis.”

“Pierce offers hundreds of custom colors, including more than one hundred shades of red, but this is our company’s first-ever brand new pink pumper, and it generated lots of excitement amongst Pierce employees as it made its way through the plant,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency.  “We’re proud to supply Prince George’s County with this highly visible vehicle that will work to help protect lives even beyond what is typically expected from a Pierce pumper.”

“PGFD is a leading example of the commitment our first responders make to the people and property they protect in their communities.  We are proud supporters of their fight against breast cancer and all other types of cancer,” added Joe Pack, President and CEO of Atlantic Emergency Solutions.

In addition to the Velocity pumper, PGFD purchased three additional Velocity pumpers, an aerial ladder, and a rescue squad scheduled for delivery later this fall.

PGFD is the nation’s largest combination department.  The department strives to improve the quality of life in Prince George’s County by promoting safety, and providing the highest quality of fire prevention, fire protection, emergency medical services and community outreach programs.  The Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department responded to a total of over 130,000 calls for service last year.

Pierce Celebrates 30 Years of Building Custom Chassis with Display at FDIC





APPLETON, Wis. (April 19, 2012) – Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, today presented its industry-leading lineup of custom fire and emergency vehicles at the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, Ind. Pierce marked its 30th year of building custom chassis with a display of nine Pierce apparatus in Lucas Oil Stadium, including three Pierce® Dash® CF models and a total of six unique custom chassis.







“During Pierce’s 99 year history, we’ve built over 51,000 fire trucks and we have 30 years of custom chassis experience,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “That accumulated knowledge enhances every truck we build. Meeting the needs of firefighters is Pierce’s number one priority, and this is the guiding principal in all that we do – from product innovation to customer service.”







Front and center in the display are three of Pierce’s state-of-the-art Dash CF vehicles. They include a medium block PUC pumper, a big block PUC pumper featuring the Pierce exclusive Detroit DD13 500 hp engine and a 105-ft PUC aerial ladder. The Dash CF, first introduced in 2011, features an innovative tilting cab forward design that repositions the engine rearward and down low between the frame rails, resulting in a wide-open interior configuration solving the space problem for the driver and officer.







A new Velocity™ PUC pumper, featuring a more open interior with improved visibility and an advanced HVAC system – is shown with permission of the Clayton Winchester Fire Department of Clayton, Wis.







A quint configuration, with a 75-ft heavy-duty PUC ladder and single rear axle, built on an Impel™ chassis, is on display courtesy of the Watauga Fire Department of Watauga, Tex.

In addition, an environmentally friendly idle management technology, utilizing lithium ion batteries, is now available on all vehicles equipped with Command Zone electronics. These batteries allow vehicle systems to operate with the engine shut down for extended time periods, resulting in zero emissions.







FDIC visitors are invited to the Pierce booth on April 19 at 1:00 pm (today) for a product introduction presentation.

Pierce and Harley-Davidson Announce NFFF Full Throttle Support 3 Sweepstakes Winner

December 9, 2011

APPLETON, Wis. (December 9, 2011) - Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation [NYSE: OSK] company, and Harley-Davidson Motor Company [NYSE: HOG] today awarded Fire Chief Kevin Barnes of the Rescue Hose Company No. 1 in Greencastle, Penn., a Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® motorcycle as the winner in the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) Full Throttle Support 3 sweepstakes. The motorcycle is on display at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, Calif. The NFFF Full Throttle Support campaign recently completed its third consecutive year and has, in that time, generated donations of $275,000 to assist the NFFF.

Chief Barnes has been a member of Rescue Hose Company No. 1 since 1979, and was named its chief in 2006. “We are blessed to be able to regularly support the important cause and work of the NFFF,” said Chief Barnes. “In the fire service, we care for our own. And the NFFF honors those who have lost their lives in the line of duty and sustains their families and loved ones with important support programs. The commitment of Pierce and Harley-Davidson speaks volumes about the importance both companies place on helping the families of these fallen heroes.”

“I’ve been riding for about 40 years,” continued Barnes, “and the fire service and motorcycles are two of my passions. Living close to the NFFF headquarters, I hope to display the bike at events and use it in whatever way I can to help generate awareness and funds for the Foundation. I’m very excited to take this awesome bike on the open road!”

Pierce senior vice president of sales Dan Peters added, “Pierce and its dealer family is proud to support the NFFF Full Throttle initiative. It is now the longest running and most successful charitable fundraising program we’ve ever been associated with. Since its inception, NFFF Full Throttle Support has generated $275,000 for this truly worthwhile endeavor. The money donated supports the noble mission of NFFF to honor the memory of firefighters who have lost their lives by assisting their families.”

Since its inception, NFFF Full Throttle Support has generated close to 20,000 individual donations to the NFFF. The NFFF is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring the memory of America’s fallen firefighters as it allocates resources to aid their surviving spouses and children with scholarship assistance for educational and job training costs, and for peer networks that offer families and coworkers essential emotional support.

“On behalf of Harley-Davidson Motor Company, and our dealers and riders, we’re honored, for the third consecutive year, to play a role with Pierce to champion the NFFF Full Throttle Support campaign. Harley-Davidson is proud and delighted to be a sponsor of this important cause,” said Steve St. Thomas, Harley-Davidson Motor Company director, Police and Fleet Sales.

Cathy Hedrick, NFFF corporate relations specialist, said, "The NFFF is appreciative of the support given to us by both Pierce and Harley-Davidson. Without their commitment to the families of the fallen, our programs and services would not be as effective as they have been. NFFF Full Throttle Support has been one of our premiere corporate fundraising efforts, and we’re very happy that a fire chief and motorcycle enthusiast such as Chief Barnes has won this amazing bike."

Pierce Demos New PUC Wildland-Urban Interface Apparatus

Vehicle built to address growing need for wildland and urban interface emergency response.

APPLETON, Wis. (June 16, 2011) – Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is showcasing the capabilities of a new Type 1 wildland-urban interface firefighting vehicle that incorporates the patented Pierce Ultimate Configuration (PUC) technology. The new apparatus offers enhanced emergency response performance for wildland and urban interface firefighting in regions of the country such as the West Coast, for example, where areas of housing are adjacent to undeveloped wildland vegetation.



A demonstration vehicle, built on the Pierce® Arrow XT™ custom chassis, is in the Pacific Northwest with Pierce dealer Hughes Fire Equipment through June. The vehicle will be on hand at a ride-and-drive event in Eugene, Ore. on June 17.







“Many regions of the country are experiencing increasing risk of fires and other emergencies in the wildland-urban interface, and the new PUC Type 1 engine is built to address a wide range of responses in this environment,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “With its shorter wheelbase, excellent pump-and-roll capability and increased storage space as compared to a traditional Type 1 engine, the PUC wildland-urban interface vehicle offers the flexibility to address wildfires and natural disasters, as well as traditional structural fires.”







The PUC is an industry changing multi-purpose response vehicle that is engineered to eliminate the need for a bulky pumphouse. It features a simplified two-step pump shift operation and a redesigned pump panel for easier use. The standard pump-and-roll capability allows the vehicle to simultaneously move position while effectively fighting a fire.







The apparatus features a wheelbase as short as 162-inches as well as high chassis angle of approach and departure for improved maneuverability, and all-wheel drive is available for unmatched off road performance. In addition, the PUC technology frees space while improving function. Because of its space saving design, the PUC wildland-urban interface vehicle offers 200 cubic feet of storage space for rescue and EMS equipment.



The PUC wildland-urban interface vehicle is available on all Pierce custom chassis.

Dunsmuir is located on the northern edge of the state in Siskiyou County.







"This beautiful corner of California contains some of the most scenic landscape in the world, but it is susceptible to the dangers of wildfires,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. "The Saber wildland pumper is an especially effective configuration that meets the needs of departments in rugged wildland interface areas.”








"Our new Saber wildland pumper enables our department to safely transport six firefighters on any fire, rescue or medical aid response,” said Dan Padilla, fire chief of the Dunsmuir/Castella Fire Department. “The sharp turning radius allows us to quickly maneuver through narrow streets, steep driveways and roads that sometimes have slopes of 25 to 50 percent. The new Pierce engine has performed very well, earning high marks and praise from the entire membership.”








The Saber apparatus features all-wheel drive for enhanced off-road maneuverability in the region’s back roads and rugged terrain. Other features include: seating for six firefighters; roll-up doors and an LED lighting package; a 425 hp engine; 6-speed automatic transmission; 16-inch front bumper extension with hose tray; a 320-amp alternator; backboard storage; slide out trays; adjustable shelves, and a swing out toolboard.

The vehicle also features a Class A foam system, Hercules™ compressed air foam system, 30-gallon foam cell and pump-and-roll capability to attack fast moving wildland fires.








The local Pierce dealer providing sales and support is Golden State Fire Apparatus of Modesto, Calif. “The entire Golden State, Pierce and Oshkosh Capital team went above and beyond to accommodate our department throughout the entire planning and purchasing process,??? Chief Padilla added. “Without their assistance, patience and knowledge, none of this would have been possible.”

Pierce Ultimate Configuration (PUC) Granted United States Patent #7,784,554 as it Surpasses 500 Vehicles Sold

Unique fire pump system located underneath cab offers firefighters many benefits.







APPLETON, Wis. (January 6, 2011) – Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, today announced that it has been granted United States Patent #7,784,554 for the Pierce Ultimate Configuration (PUC™) firefighting vehicle. This is in addition to multiple patents previously issued, which cover this vehicle and its options. With more than 500 vehicles sold, the PUC is among the most popular products in Pierce Manufacturing history.







“This US patent reinforces the PUC as a breakthrough firefighting vehicle innovation unlike anything else in the industry,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “Our product development team spent thousands of hours developing the PUC, with input and feedback from firefighters coast-to-coast.”







The PUC is an industry-changing multi-purpose response vehicle that is engineered to eliminate the need for a bulky pumphouse. The PUC features a simplified two-step pump shift operation and redesigned pump panel for ease of use. In addition, the design frees space while improving function. With a wheelbase as short as 172-inches for improved maneuverability, the PUC also provides up to 500 cubic-feet of storage. Among the many other benefits delivered by the PUC are the following:







• Two-step/single touch ease. A simple two-step pump operation and “single touch” water-foam-CAFS selection means the firefighting system is up and functional before the operator exits the cab.







• Tilt and access efficiency. Reduced downtime and maintenance costs by tilting the cab and removing the crosslay trays. The PUC provides easy and full access to all plumbing and pump components. Maintenance people spend less time getting to the plumbing and parts.







• Safety. With the pump operator positioned alongside the hose connections instead of over them – and with crosslays and hosebeds at chest height – the PUC boasts an impressive list of safety features.







The PUC is available on all Pierce custom chassis in side and top mount configurations, as well as on all aerial ladders.

Atlantic Emergency Solutions Awarded Apparatus Contract from Portsmouth Fire, Rescue and Emergency Service

December 14, 2010 - Manassas, Virginia:

 

View News & Current Events -- Atlantic Emergency Solutions

Atlantic Emergency Solutions officially announces the award of an apparatus contract from Portsmouth Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services of Portsmouth, Virginia. The contract for four (4) Pierce PUC Pumpers and one (1) Pierce PUC 100’ Rear Mount Steel Aerial Platform all on custom Arrow XT chassis was finalized on November 16, 2010. The contract utilized HGACBuy, a nationwide, government procurement vehicle.







“Atlantic Emergency Solutions is proud to partner with Portsmouth Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services as they strive to bring the latest in innovation to their fleet of apparatus. We embrace the opportunity to provide the City of Portsmouth with solutions that focus on safety, performance and reliability to meet the needs of their community,” said Joe Pack, President & CEO.
All five units feature TAK-4 Independent Front Suspension, Side Roll Protection, Frontal Impact Protection, PUC pumps and the new environmentally friendly 2010 Detroit DD-13 engine which is exclusive to Pierce Manufacturing. The DD-13 engine utilizes SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) Technology that has been used in Europe since 2006 and has had over 10 million miles of validation testing in North America. SCR Technology not only meets and exceeds the new EPA emissions standards, but it has also proven to be an economical solution. There has never been an emissions solution that improves fuel economy until now. Testing shows that SCR Technology provides 3% better fuel economy over a comparable EPA07 engine and at least 5% better fuel economy than a comparable EPA 2010 “EGR only” engine.







“Portsmouth Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services is looking forward to the addition of these five units to our fleet,??? said Fire Chief Don J. Horton. “The new technologies introduced by Pierce in the Arrow XT units will make these units safer and more economical to operate while reducing adverse environmental impacts on our beautiful city and improving service delivery to our citizens.”
