Manufacturers History: KME’s origins are found in an auto repair shop started by John “Sonny” Kovatch in 1946. The business grew and branched into several auto and truck related businesses, including Kovatch Mobile Equipment, which built special-purpose military vehicles and airport refueling vehicles. In 1983, Kovatch Mobile purchased fire apparatus manufacturer Car-Mar, a builder of stainless steel pumpers and tankers.
In 1985, KME Fire Apparatus was formed after Kovatch acquired some of the assets of the former Hendrickson Mobile Equipment company. KME obtained and used Hendrickson’s distinctive chassis. The rights to the name Hendrickson’s Mobile Equipment and other parts of the assets were then sold off, hence HME. Around the same time KME also bought assets from Mack‘s fire apparatus manufacturing division, specifically their technology, inventory, machinery and apparatus body construction methods. KME was producing pumpers when aerial products were added to the product line in 1987, using ladders from LTI and Fire Spire (Hahn).
In 1992, KME acquired the rights to Grumman Emergency Products‘ (Howe-Oren Roanoke Corp) line of aerial devices, the Aerialcat designs, manufacturing resources and other assets of the now closed division of the business.
In 1997 KME purchased the Walter Motor Truck Company, thus entering into the ARFF area of fire suppression. KME offers a whole line of sole-source apparatus, including pumpers, ladder trucks, rescue/command units, wildland, tanker, industrial and airport apparatus.
In April 2016, Kovatch Corporation announced the sale of its fire apparatus business to Florida-based REV Group.
Originally marketed to farmers the trucks were immediately successful and were sold to businesses in cities as well. Since then International trucks have been sold worldwide and built or assembled in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, Germany, Mexico, South Africa, the Soviet Union, and Turkey.
International Harvester also built large numbers of military tactical vehicles between 1941 and 1961. These were not branded “International”. Navistar has built military tactical trucks since 2007. These are branded “International”. Military trucks are not included here.
In 2019 International markets six separate series of medium-duty, heavy-duty, and severe-service trucks with loaded weights from 16,000 to 92,000 pounds (7,300 to 41,700 kg) and up to 140,000 pounds (64,000 kg) including trailers. International also has always built a wide range of custom and specialty use trucks and chassis.
