APPLETON, Wis. — A variety of Pierce Manufacturing products, technology and apparatus will be on display at FDIC International 2019, and the company will also host the opening ceremony of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb event at the conference.
Pierce Manufacturing, an OshKosh corporation company, will highlight the Pierce FotoKite, a tethered aerial device that can be fitted and deployed from any apparatus currently in service, and works to increase response times provide better situational awareness.

Also in attendance at the Pierce FDIC booth will be sales and service teams to provide the information and expertise that can be found at one of their 26 dealerships around the country. The aftermarket service specialists will provide support capabilities and enhanced rapid part delivery services.
“In recent years, we’ve introduced market-disrupting apparatus that address voice of customer feedback and have set benchmarks for performance in the industry,” Mike Dufrane, vice president of sales and marketing for Pierce Manufacturing, said. “Pierce’s FDIC exhibit will show how the breadth of innovation that spans across our product and service platforms and how these advancements have supported, and will continue to support, the unique needs of firefighters in the lifesaving work they do each day.”
