E-ONE®, a subsidiary of REV Group® and a leading manufacturer of fire apparatus, announces the major expansion of its dealer 1200 Degrees’ Techno Feu, an E-ONE dealer for more than 30 years.
The $1.5 million investment at the branch in St- François-du-Lac, Quebec includes the addition of more than 12,500 square feet, increasing the facility’s footprint to almost 30,000 square feet. As a result, there are now 18 service bays and the size of its after-market parts department tripled, expanding the branch’s capacity for the selling, servicing, and maintenance of fire trucks in Eastern Canada.
“This major project at Techno Feu reflects our recent growth and prepares us for strategic affiliations coming in the next few years,” said François Proulx, President of 1200 Degrees. “With our expertise, our zeal and our credibility that dominates the market, we were able to build a complete service offering, especially accessible to municipalities across Eastern Canada. We intend to remain one of the most important Canadian suppliers in the field and this expansion allows us to achieve that.”
“E-ONE is excited to be a part of this major expansion with our dealer 1200 Degrees Techno Feu, who have been instrumental to our success in the Canadian market,” said Larry Daniels, E-ONE Director of Sales. “Despite the impact of the pandemic during the past year, 1200 Degrees Techno Feu has continued to move forward and invest in their future and the future of E-ONE. We are proud to support them and to continue to grow our Canadian market presence well into the future.”
With service centers in Trois-Rivières, St-François-du-Lac and Ayr (Ontario), 1200 Degrees offers the largest specialized grouping in sales and rental of fire trucks and fire equipment in Eastern Canada. Major customers include the cities of Montreal and Toronto and the Canadian National Defence.
