Ocala, FL – Patriot Fire, E-ONE’s dealer for Maryland and Delaware, recently opened a 26,000-square-foot facility next to Route 50 in Maryland, just in time for the 2012 Maryland State Firemen’s Association (MSFA) Convention.

“We considered opening up several smaller locations throughout Maryland and Delaware to service our customers but felt the new facility was perfectly positioned to serve our territory and afforded us the space to offer a one-stop-shop for service, maintenance and repair,” said Steve Beavers, President of Patriot Fire.

The new location boasts a body shop with a 70-foot spray / bake booth and frame alignment system. Patriot Fire also offers a fabrication department for custom equipment mounting, as well as dedicated mechanics and service bays for Department of Transportation annual inspection requirements, preventative maintenance and repairs.

The investment in the new, state-of-the-art facility was made after an outstanding first year as an E-ONE dealer.

“Last year at the MSFA Conference we had a booth full of demo units, this year we will have three customer trucks sold by Patriot Fire,” Beavers said. “It has been such a pleasure over the last year working with everyone throughout E-ONE; we feel like part of a team and part of an organization that’s going somewhere.”

Featured in the Patriot Fire booth at the 2012 MSFA Convention will be a Cyclone II rescue engine from Bryans Road Maryland, an all E-ONE department and Patriot’s first customer as an E-ONE dealer. As well as an HP 78 aluminum aerial ladder on a Typhoon chassis from Millsboro, Delaware, a Typhoon rescue engine from Tilghman Island, Maryland, and a commercial Tradition ES engine.

“We can’t thank our customers enough for their continued support and would like to invite all those travelling on Route 50 to the MSFA Convention, to stop by the new location and see for yourself what Patriot Fire and E-ONE can do for your department,” Beavers said.
