APPLETON – Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, recently announced that Firematic Supply Co. Inc. has acquired Churchville Fire Equipment, furthering its expansion in the Northeast region. 

Peter Hanratty, president of Firematic, said this acquisition enhances Firematic’s portfolio by integrating Churchville’s 70-year legacy of excellent service and top-quality equipment into its operations. 

With this acquisition, Firematic’s regions now encompass Connecticut and the entire state of New York.

“Churchville Fire Equipment has been an icon in the industry for more than seven decades, with Gerald Spotts spearheading its launch, and followed by a lineage of exceptional leadership with employee-owners acquiring 100% ownership in 2004,” Hanratty said. “We highly value the solid foundation and enduring relationships built by Churchville’s team over the years. We are excited to bring our teams together to expand the resources and service offerings available to our customers in the near future.”

The acquisition includes all of Churchville’s facilities and service center locations across the region, and employees will be retained as operations continue from existing premises.

John Alfieri, vice president of apparatus sales for Churchville, said the transition is a strategic step to propel the organization forward in tandem with “one of the most respected and trusted names in fire apparatus sales.”

“Upholding our customers’ trust is paramount, and we firmly believe our collaboration with Firematic will only enhance our support for their critical missions,” he said.
