ARNPRIOR FIRE TRUCKS CORP SOLD 6/14/2017 4:12:27 PM
Arnprior Fire Trucks Corporation has been sold to competitor Eastway Fire and Rescue Vehicles. David Watson, President and CEO of Arnprior Fire Trucks, says other than the loss of the historic name, it's business as usual as the workforce has been hired intact by Eastway and Arnprior's state-of-the manufacturing facility will remain as the new firm's production site.
Watson says the consolidation was necessary to ensure the production viability of both entities. The purchase agreement was finalized on May 25th. The fine print says Eastway will fulfil Arnprior Fire Truck's existing build contracts, and operate in the Arnprior premises for at least a year.
