In July of 2010, market-leading fire apparatus manufacturer, E-ONE, Inc., opened
this 75,000 square foot facility in Hamburg, New York. The facility specializes in
manufacturing stainless steel apparatus, refurbishment, technical service and
E-ONE appointed Bill Savage, a then 30-year industry veteran and expert in stainless
steel fire apparatus design and manufacturing, as president of the New York
facility. Bill Savage assembled a highly-experienced team to support new and
existing E-ONE customers.
“The New York based team is proud to join the E-ONE family and we look
forward to complementing E-ONE’s existing products by providing the
industry’s best stainless steel apparatus to customers throughout the nation,”
said Bill Savage, president of E-ONE New York. “We have been manufacturing
and refurbishing stainless steel apparatus for more than 30 years and are
excited to work closely with E-ONE dealers and customers.”
This investment furthers E-ONE’s goals of investing in innovative
products and expanding its factory service capabilities to enrich E-ONE’s leading
market position and further the company’s ability to serve fire departments
throughout North America and in more than 40 countries worldwide.

In the 80s, R.D.Murray Fire Apparatus produced its first Class A Pumper for the Main Transit Fire Department in Amherst, NY. Constructed of 304L stainless steel, and built on a Simon Duplex cab chassis, the vehicle is still in front line service today at the Sunset Bay Fire Department in Irving, NY. The vehicle continues in excellent operational service with original body and paint in outstanding condition.

Early product innovations included break-formed 304L stainless steel designs and a patented Fiberglass Panel (FRP) overlay that eliminated paint and corrosion issues.
In 2010 the Hamburg group became a part of E-ONE Inc. and re-launched the high-quality stainless steel products. Now, with a hand-picked group of highly experienced industry professionals, E-ONE, Inc. offers the high quality stainless steel fire apparatus that customers have come to expect from the team in Hamburg.
