HME Ahrens-Fox has been behind the design and manufacture of the best fire apparatus in the industry since 1971. Our 1871 cab and chassis is an industry standard and serves as the foundation for many of our best fire apparatus. The HME Ahrens-Fox difference is built on experience, innovation and a drive to produce the best apparatus available in the industry. Based in Michigan, home of the auto industry, we are one of the few vertically integrated and independent suppliers in the market today. We can design, engineer and manufacture entire vehicles using the best technologies available.
Even though we create highly-engineered products, we also know that our business is ultimately about the people our products serve. By listening to the experiences of fire chiefs and fire fighters across the country, we’ve learned what works, what doesn’t – and what is absolutely critical to saving lives and property while protecting fire fighters. That’s why for decade after decade we’ve been dedicated to designing the most efficient and toughest custom fire apparatus in the firefighting industry. HME Ahrens-Fox fire and rescue apparatus can be found around the United States, and around the world, designed and configured to serve people in a host of specific environments.
