REV Group Acquires Ferrara Fire Apparatus, Inc.

It was announced April 25, 2017 that Ferrara Fire Apparatus Inc. has been acquired by REV Group, an industry-leading and diverse specialty vehicle manufacturer headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Most of you are aware that REV Group already owns REV Fire Group, which builds and sells products under the E-ONE and KME brands. Ferrara is happy to announce that we are joining forces with one of the largest and most recognized family of specialty and fire apparatus vehicles in our business.

Ferrara will continue to operate from their existing facilities. The transition to the new ownership will be completely seamless, with only very minor changes in how business is conducted on a daily basis.

The opportunity to leverage the resources of both companies will better serve our end users.
