Recent Deliveries from CustomFIRE

"I have been working with CustomFIRE for over 20 years. CustomFIRE has always had an excellent eye for detail and going above and beyond the customer’s wants and needs. I have been around and worked on many other fire trucks and I haven’t found anyone to beat their workmanship and quality. Any one can build a fire truck, but it’s the builders who are there to back up their work with excellent support that matter the most to me. While the Sutphen cab is new to us, we are looking forward to receiving the same amount of support from the two great companies.

If anyone is even thinking about a new fire truck, you will not be disappointed with CustomFIRE.

"Since the 1980’s, CustomFIRE has been our “GO TO” source for multiple Engines, Tankers, and Elevating Platforms. When we spec out a new piece apparatus we attempt to design and build what the firefighting industry will be buying a decade from that point. This maximizes our resale return, lowering our overall apparatus costs. Over the decades, the CustomFIRE staff has been open and innovative in incorporating international trends into its current apparatus designs. In every case the results have been better than advertised.

Product in Focus

Did you know that CustomFIRE offers customized tool mounting? Whether it’s a new build or an existing truck, we can build brackets for your hydraulically operated rescue tools so when you arrive on scene, your tools are easy to grab and already connected.  We can also design mounts for pull-out tool boards to help maximize your storage space.  We can even add or modify your front bumper to carry extrication tools.
Our SmartSpace(R) storage solutions include more than just optimizing your wheel well area for storing SCBA cylinders, wheel chocks, air packs, fire extinguishers and floor dry!  
We can design and build boxes, shelving, and storage sleeves to help you make the most out of the space you have.  We have even designed tool cages that will roll-out from the rear of your vehicle giving you easy access to reels and rescue tools.
Employee Profile

Congratulations to Brian Alling, our second "30-year Employee" this year!  Brian is our service manager and you probably have spoken with him if you ever needed some parts ordered.  In addition to running our service department, Brian is also very involved with final inspections on vehicles before delivery.  The knowledge he brings to the table not only about our product, but in other products that we use on our vehicles is helpful to our many customers who will call Brian to have him help troubleshoot over the phone.  Thank you Brian for your many years of service to not only CustomFIRE, but also to our customers!
