LaFRANCE Equipment Corporation offers a complete product line of Quality Fire Fighting Apparatus manufactured by Alexis Fire Equipment Company to include Aerial Devices, Tankers, Pumpers and Rescue type units available on either a custom or commercial style chassis. Additionally, numerous types of mini and specialty type units are available as described herein.
Since the company was founded in 1947, Alexis Fire Equipment has evolved and grown from a small fabrication shop with the limited capacity to hold only four units at a time, to a sophisticated business that now spans over 55,000 square feet and employs over 75 skilled engineers, craftsmen, and mechanics — a figure that continues to grow. As one of the only remaining family-owned fire equipment manufacturers in the Midwest, Alexis continues to instill the tradition of product excellence, acute customer care, and superior service.
Over the past few years, Alexis has pushed and expanded its product line to include not only uniquely custom-built aerials, rescues and pumpers, but also custom-crafted law enforcement vehicles, fire/rescue Aggressor Watercrafts, and now introducing the new ambulance series. And for those customers who are not interested in a completely custom-built vehicle, Alexis has done most of the work for you with their exclusive line of Specialty Vehicles featuring the Response 1, Vision Series, and the new Engine 1 series — designs based on decades of experience building fire trucks and truly understanding the needs of firemen and rescue workers. This significant list of added products and offerings in less than four years, provides proof that Alexis is a dynamic and growing competitor in the fire industry, and will continue to exceed customer expectations in both personal attention and product quality.
Unlike most fire equipment manufacturers who promise custom fire trucks, Alexis actually delivers on the meaning of custom-crafted apparatus. Working side-by-side with each customer, Alexis will construct your vehicle based on your specific department's needs, and you can view the progress of your truck online weekly. The Alexis team — from the best engineers and draftsmen to highly skilled mechanics and craftsmen — build your truck from the ground up. No standard packages or machine-assembly line. An Alexis truck is as unique as our customers. Never counted as a number. Only as part of the Alexis family and legacy.
