Fire trucks

Due to requirements from Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicle manufacturers and operators, we established a dedicated Fire Division, which is a UK Ministry of Defence approved “In Service Support Provider” (ISSP) for the maintenance and repair of specialised fire apparatus that are required for aircraft rescue and fire-fighting at airfields.

Our knowledge base of equipment and appliances in the ARFF services has increased from its traditional core business of transmissions, drivelines, axles and road train to include pump modules, monitors, tanks, chassis maintenance and any equipment for ARFF as well as specialised marine equipment for waterborne fire fighting.

We are fast becoming the first call for any manufacturer or operator who demands a fast, reliable and professional service.

Air Support Vehicles

We provide innovative solutions for airport ground support vehicles ranging from standard power shift transmissions to complete electric and hybrid drivelines.

Our systems are in operation in airports around the world and cover stairs, belt loaders, trucks and trolleys.

We have considerable experience in transmission supply and maintenance for agricultural tractors.

We provide service on wood chipping and multitree handling equipment. Within the quarrying and mining industry, we have a long history of support to dump trucks and loading shovels. We also cover municipal vehicles such as road sweepers and hedge-row cutters.

We also have global supply into the leisure and theme park market providing hybrid and electric drivelines for road trains.
