From The Chief

Battalion Chief Buddy Wilks

“Service life is paramount for our department. We need apparatus that can tackle near 5,000 calls we get each month. So it’s only natural we work with Pierce. When visiting the plant, they take the time to answer all of our questions directly to ensure our custom builds are perfect. So when it comes time to answer the call, we know our rigs will perform.”
