Oshkosh Fire & Emergency Group, part of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), has been selected by Saudi Aramco to engineer and manufacture 22 heavy-duty industrial multi-purpose firefighting apparatus. Custom engineered by Oshkosh Corporation subsidiary Pierce Manufacturing (North America’s leading apparatus brand), the vehicles will be placed into service beginning in mid-2016 at Saudi Aramco facilities.
“The Pierce brand is synonymous with top quality, custom-built fire and emergency apparatus of all types, and we are proud to be selected by Saudi Aramco for this significant purchase,” said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Fire & Emergency. “It’s a testament to Pierce’s well-earned reputation for quality and performance, as well as the expanding support infrastructure we have in place to provide an unmatched level of after-the-sale service to customers in the Middle East.”
All 22 of the vehicles are built on a heavy-duty Pierce custom chassis and are specifically engineered for the unique requirements of industrial firefighting applications. Service and support will be provided by Oshkosh Fire & Emergency Group. Last month, Oshkosh announced an expanded presence in the Middle East to better serve Oshkosh and Pierce customers throughout the region.
