Reliant Fire Apparatus to Open New Service Center in Des Moines, IA

Construction of the new Reliant Fire Apparatus Service Center is expected to be completed in late spring 2022.

APPLETON, Wis. (May 5, 2022) – Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, announced that authorized dealer Reliant Fire Apparatus, Inc. will open a new 16,000 square foot service center in Des Moines, Iowa. Located on the northeast side of the metro area at the Interstate 80 and Interstate 35 interchange, the new service center will support Pierce customers not only in the metro area, but also statewide.

“Convenient access to service is essential for our customers, and the new facility will allow our team to provide faster response and increased availability for repairs and other support offerings,” said Brett Krueger, Co-Principal at Reliant Fire Apparatus. “Reducing the amount of time a device is out of service greatly benefits our customers and, more importantly, the communities they serve.”

The new Reliant Fire Apparatus Service Center will be staffed by Pierce-trained technicians, including Pierce Master Technicians.

The new facility will provide full service on pumpers, rescues, aerials, tankers and smaller vehicles such as brush trucks and wild land units.

Additional features of Reliant Fire Apparatus’ new Des Moines Service Center include:

  • Interior capacity for 12 fire engines
  • 1,100 square foot parts warehouse
  • 1,005 square foot tool storage
  • Base for mobile service unit
  • Ample outdoor space for device testing and installation

The installation will extend overhead devices inside the building for maintenance, which is especially crucial during inclement weather and cold winter months.

Krueger added, “We are thrilled to be part of the Des Moines community and a larger part of the Iowa Fire Service community. We look forward to building even stronger relationships with our customers by helping them reduce appliance downtime, extend the life of their fire appliances through services and preventative maintenance, and enabling them to better protect their communities.
