Manufacturers History: 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.
