Here at Ten-8, we have been refurbishing fire apparatus for over 10 years. We complete the work out of our Bradenton, FL and Sanford, FL locations. These two locations feature paint and body facilities in-house. Our technicians can rebuild your pump, upgrade your warning lights, add foam systems, install generators, and more. Our paint and body experts can refurbish your apparatus to like new condition. From small accident repairs to complete refurbishment, we can do it all. We are certified by Pierce Manufacturing to refurbish their vehicles. However, we can refurbish any brand fire truck.
For large projects that require considerable work, we often work with Pierce’s remanufacturing program. They will disassemble a large majority of the vehicle, remanufacture all of the major components, upgrade important features such as the lighting and seating, and much more. At the end of the process, you will have a complete unit that looks and smells new. Some features will also receive a new warranty. It’s the closest thing you will get to buying a new Pierce fire apparatus.
