Manufacturers History: Formed in 1974 by retired playground equipment manufacturer Robert Wormser, Emergency One grew quickly and became the largest fire apparatus builder in the United States by the mid-1980s. The company pioneered the use of modular bodies built from extruded aluminum components, enabling it to build in advance and speed up production time considerably. It built a new 75,000 square foot plant in Ocala to meet production needs in 1978. A new line of aerial devices was launched in 1981 – the company had built earlier aerial-equipped apparatus using ladder assemblies purchased from an outside supplier. The Hurricane custom chassis was introduced in 1984, leading to a full line of custom trucks.
Corporately, in 1979, Emergency One was acquired by the Federal Signal Corporation. The chassis business was spun off into a separate entity called Federal Motors in 1985, and Emergency One officially changed its name to E-One in 1988.
In the late 1980s, E-One began to acquire other apparatus manufacturers. In 1989, it purchased Florida-based American Eagle. In late 1991, E-One entered the Canadian market in force with its purchase of Superior Emergency Vehicles. In 1998, Saulsbury Fire and Rescue Corporation of Preble, NY was added to the E-One family. The three plants purchased were closed in 1992, 2006 and 2004, respectively.
In 2008, E-One was purchased by AIP in a carve out from Federal Signal. It was assigned to AIP’s REV Group portfolio. AIP is a private equity firm distinctively focused on buying and improving industrial businesses with operations in the United States or Canada. The REV Group portfolio is a leading diversified manufacturer of specialty vehicles to North America, as well as export markets.
