USMC Awards FWD Seagrave $12M Contract to Rebuild 92 Fire Rescue Vehicles
In May 2015, FWD Seagrave secured a $12m contract from the US Department of Defense to rebuild 92 Crash Fire Rescue vehicles for the US Marine Corps. Under this contract, FWD Seagrave will restore the heavy equipment P-19A model trucks to their originally manufactured condition. During the project, all of the vehicles will be disassembled down to the frame rails to replace or refurbish the parts. The project is expected to take four years.
FWD Seagrave chairman and CEO AJ Neiner said: "Providing these Crash Fire Rescue vehicles for the US Marine Corps gets us back to our roots working on heavy-duty military vehicles. Our team is committed to providing superior quality and top-notch service for the Marines and we expect this to be the beginning of a long-term relationship with the US Military."
