Construction of Cheshire's new 100' ladder truck is currently underway at Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton (WI). Fabrication of the cab began just over 3 weeks ago and the vehicle is quickly taking shape.

Attached is a weekly photo update from the apparatus dealer. We will continue to post and share photos every week until the truck is complete. It is anticipated that final assembly of the truck and delivery to Cheshire will be no later than mid-April of 2017.
