SVI Refurb – a subsidiary of the hugely successful SVI Trucks – have taken the next steps of their growth by launching its own website, www.svirefurb.com. Countless fire departments across the country have trusted SVI Refurb with their fire apparatus refurbishment needs, adding 10 to 15 years of life to their trucks. SVI Refurb is a division of SVI Trucks, a leading manufacturer of custom fire trucks, located in a 160,000-square-foot facility in Fort Collins, Colo.
“With our growing list of services, plus a great portfolio of completed projects, we felt it was time for our refurb division to have its own website,” said Ron Weinmeister, SVI Refurb President. “Plus, we want to help guide departments through the refurb process, so the website includes a lot of resource information, like NFPA 1912 guidelines, cost analysis scenarios and a list of general refurb prices.”
The website features a number of pages devoted to essential refurb services, including chassis remounting, apparatus repairs, automotive paint, vehicle graphics, lighting upgrades, tool mounting and annual inspections. Featuring EVT certified-technicians, SVI Refurb can refurbish most any fire truck brand, including Pierce, Sutphen, Spartan, Smeal, E-ONE, KME, Ferrara, Rosenbauer, Seagrave and of course, SVI Trucks.
“It’s important to us to help extend the life of a truck, and often at a quarter of the cost it would take to build new,” Weinmeister said. The website also includes a gallery of completed work, featuring videos, refurb specifications and before and after photos.
