ARNPRIOR, ON: Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp (AFTC) has been awarded a contract for the design and manufacture of a tandem tanker apparatus by North Grenville Fire Services. The tender calls for the tanker to be completed and delivered in late summer, and manufacture will be at the company’s plant in Arnprior, Ontario.
“We are confident that AFTC will build us an excellent truck,” said Paul Hutt, fire chief of North Grenville Fire Services. “The team of builders in Arnprior is skilled and offers outstanding quality control measures in their trucks. With local service and support North Grenville Fire Service will have a reliable apparatus that will be safe and serve the community for years to come.”
AFTC uses CNC machining capabilities, laser cutters, laser welders and other precision machinery. The plant operates to the AS9100 Aerospace quality standards. AFTC shares the Plaintree resources of almost 100 employees including professional engineers, draftsmen, CAD operators, certified welders and support staff.
“AFTC still manufactures all possible components from tanks to pump boxes; we are truly a custom builder and not just an assembly plant,” said Graeme Cross, business development manager for Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp.
