OCALA, Fla., June 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- E-ONE, a member of REV Group, is pleased to welcome Associated Fire Safety Equipment, Inc. to its growing dealer network. With its commitment to delivering high-quality products and services, Associated Fire Safety Equipment, part of the Associated Fire Safety Group (AFSG), makes an ideal partner for E-ONE in serving British Columbia and the Yukon Territory in Canada.
"This is a great partnership," says Jay Johnson, Vice President of Sales and Product Management for E-ONE. "Associated Fire Safety Equipment has a proven track record of customer focus, quality, and customer service. It is an honor to work with someone so close to the fire service in the region, and for E-ONE to continue to expand sales and service in the Canadian market."
Michael S. Wilding, who works in business development for Associated Fire Safety Equipment, has immersed himself in the fire apparatus business his entire life. His father founded AFSG (formerly Associated Fire and Safety) in 1994 in the cleaning and maintenance of turnout gear before expanding into the Personal Protective Equipment sales market.
"Growing up, my father always spoke very highly of a couple of brands of Fire Apparatus Manufacturers, one of which being E-ONE," Michael says. "When I heard of E-ONE's interest in finding a new dealer in our territory, I jumped on the opportunity before anyone else had the chance. After doing our due diligence and visiting the factory, we couldn't have been more impressed with the quality of the staff at E-ONE as well as their philosophy of excellent customer service and quality of products of which we align very well."
Michael appreciates the look of the E-ONE trucks as well, citing the "great combination of a classis physical appearance with a rock solid core, but with innovation that still pushes the envelope." He is excited to offer all E-ONE products including their broad aerial line.
"There is no question in any of our minds that the aerials manufactured by E-ONE are the best on the market."
