SVI Trucks has added Oklahoma apparatus dealer Heartland Fire Trucks to SVI’s highly selective dealer network, which is made up of only 25 dealers across the nation, each expert in the custom-build process. As one of the nation’s leading custom fire apparatus manufacturers, SVI Trucks is best known for its rescue trucks, command vehicles and hazmat units.
Heartland owners Mark Richardson and Jeff Davenport bring a combined 50-plus years of service as firefighters in Oklahoma. “Together, we have been selling fire equipment to departments across Oklahoma for more than 40 years,” Richardson said. “In all of that time, it’s been one of our dreams to work with SVI Trucks because they bring a reputation that few manufacturers can match.”
Heartland Fire Trucks is located in Marlow, Oklahoma, just an hour south of Oklahoma City and an hour east of Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Surrounded by such diverse terrain and varied population, Heartland is prime to sell SVI Trucks’ full lineup of apparatus, which not only includes light, medium and heavy rescues, but also brush trucks, rescue pumpers, wildland tankers and more.
“Our dealer partnerships are very important to us here at SVI Trucks, especially given the custom nature of our trucks. We know Heartland is going to be a great addition to the SVI Trucks dealer team,” said Bob Sorensen, Vice President of SVI Trucks Sales.
