Pierce, Detroit Extend Fire Service Relationship

Pierce Manufacturing, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK) company, and Detroit Diesel Corporation (Detroit) announced a five-year extension of their fire service agreement.

Through 2018, the Detroit™ DD13® engine is available exclusively on Pierce’s complete line of custom fire and emergency vehicles.

Detroit developed a unique configuration of its DD13 engine to meet Pierce Manufacturing’s specific cab, wheelbase and compartment space requirements. Ideal for fire and emergency applications, the DD13 combines advanced technologies such as an asymmetrical turbocharger and an integrated Jacobs® engine brake. 

“Detroit and Pierce have been partners for more than 30 years, and we are pleased to extend our exclusive arrangement with them for five more years,” said Brad Williamson, manager, engine and component marketing for Daimler Trucks North America. “The DD13 engine has the right combination of power, performance, efficiency and durability to meet the exacting demands of the fire and emergency services market.”
