ACSI - Advanced Containment Systems, Inc. (1988 - date - Houston, TX):
This company manufactured trailers and such for HazMat units and Command Posts. They recently teamed up with Pierce and have built heavy rescue style bodies on Pierce custom chassis.

Aerofire (Spartanburg, SC): This company is relatively new and actually got their name from the other Aerofire that is listed. They however are not related.

Aerofire - Remanufactured By: I am told that this company was actually a group that formerly worked at Ranger. They are no longer in business and the name is now used by a company in Spartanburg, SC.

A.H. Stock - Newton Body (1943 - date - Newton, WI): This company has been in business since 1943 and is very well known for their Newton dump valves. They have however been building apparatus since 1947.

Ahrens-Fox 1 (1911 - 1955 - Cincinnati, OH): This is simply a serial number plate from a rig built in 1916. This large plate appeared below the driver's seat, along the running board on many rigs built during the teens and twenties.

Alexis (1946 - date - Alexis, IL): This company is already on the page but only a logo used on stationary is featured. I have attached three photos, two showing old style emblems and the third showing the current script-style emblem.

Allain Manufacturing Notre Dame (1976 - date - New Brunswick, Canada): This company builds new apparatus for departments in Canada and also does a lot of refurbishing work for another company on the East Coast called Advantage.

Allegheny (1961 - 1995 - Huntington, WV): You already have a listing for this on the site, but it shows the oval style logo that was the last style used. The first style used was a small script that stated Allegheny and the steer was featured above it.

American (1890s - Unknown - Seneca Falls, NY): Given the year and description, this would have come from a steamer.

American (Script) (1950's - 1993 - Battle Creek, MI): This falls in line with the other American Fire Apparatus emblems that you have on the site already. This is just a script style emblem that appeared on a lot of their rigs in the 1970s and 1980s.

American Fire Apparatus 6 (1993 - date - East Jordan, MI)/American Fire Apparatus (2004 - date - Bowling Green, OH): The picture is the new American Fire in Michigan. There is another but it’s American Fire Apparatus from Bowling Green area in Kentucky. There had been a dispute about the usage of the name etc.


American Fire Eagle (Summerville, SC): I don't know the exact times that this company was in business, but I know that they got sued by Emergency One for their emblem and company name. If you look at the emblem, it strongly resembles the American Eagle emblem (Gainesville, FL). American Eagle was only in business for a few years before being bought out by Emergency One. E-1 sued American Fire Eagle and won and E-1 still uses this style of emblem on an apparatus line today.

American Fire Equipment (Salina, KS): I do not know the years that this company was in business. I know that they were primarily a distributor of fire equipment and ambulances. However, they also built their own line of rural apparatus. I do not know if they are in business any more.

American LaFrance (1905 - 1984 - Elmira, NY): Everything listed here was produced by ALF during the period listed. As stated already, ALF using as many as 40 or more variations of emblems over the years. I'll try to comment on each listed.

-American LaFrance 1: This is a badge from and American LaFrance Metropolitan steamer built in 1906.

-American LaFrance 2: Just another variation on badge appearing on the radiator of early motorized ALF apparatus.

-American LaFrance 3: This is one of several styles of badges either mounted on the fins of the radiator or at the top of the radiator.

-American LaFrance 4: Just another variation on badge appearing on the radiator of early motorized ALF apparatus.

-American LaFrance 6: This is very similar to the emblem already on the site listed as 'American LaFrance 7'. This emblem is slightly longer and appeared on rigs built in the 1940's and early 1950's.

-American LaFrance 8: This is the emblem that appeared on some 900 and all of the 1000 and Century Series apparatus. Sometimes, typically on the front of the cab, there would also be an eagle perched atop the maltese cross.

-American LaFrance 9: ALF in the 1980's actually marketed a line of custom cab/chassis for use outside of the fire service. These rigs, several called the Gold Series and used as trash trucks, featured this emblem which is similar to the emblem used on some 900, 1000 and Century Series rigs. However, this emblem is plastic, colored gold and instead of a maltese cross in the center, it featured a sunburst.

American LaFrance/Foamite (1905 - 1984 - Elmira, NY): This emblem appeared on the 600, 700 and some 800 series ALF apparatus. They were mounted on the front of the cab and could be turned either way (see the emblem already on the site listed as 'American LaFrance 5'. The maltese cross in the center of the emblem actually could be removed to facilitate this mounted variance. Ths emblem also appeared on the pedestal controls of some aerials.

American Marsh (1951 - 1965 - Stratford, Ontario, Canada): This was the Canadian subsidiary of American Fire Apparatus of Battle Creek, MI. They built many apparatus over the years for fire departments in Canada. Sometimes simply referred to as Marsh, most featured the emblem shown.

Amertek (1985 - 1993 - Woodstock, Ontario, Canada): You already have a listing on the site, but have it listed as Amertech. The company built a variety of apparatus over the years, but was probably best known for their line of aircraft crash rigs. The US military had contracts for 362 units for the Army and 118 units for the Navy from Amertek. There were others delivered to other agencies as well.

Anchor-Richey (Unknown - date - Taylorsville, NC): This company is presently in business and builds a line of small rescues, mini-pumpers and brush trucks.

Anderson (1975 - 2000 - Langley, British Columbia, Canada): The information you have on the web is okay, this is just another style of emblem that was used on their early apparatus, before the oval style emblem that is already out there.

Artesia (1957 - date - Artesia, NM): Artesia manufacturers a line of brush trucks and mini-pumpers. You already have them listed on the site, but don't have the emblem.

Atlantic (Unkown - Orlando, Florida): This company manufactured ambulances is not affiliated (to my knowledge) with Atlantic Fire Apparatus of Fort Lauderdale Florida. I do know the years the company was in business but do not believe they are still in operation.
