    Posted some photos from the ALF Website. It's supposed to rain tomorrow so I'm not sure I'll get out to the site to shoot any of my own.

      When the new ALF plant opens in the summer of 2007, what type of fire apparatus will they be building at the new factory. Also will the Ephrata,Pa plant and the Hamburg,NY still be in full operation.Will the " Eagle & Metro " chassis be built at S.C ?

        The new ALF plant will build the same type apparatus, and chassis that are built today in the Ladson facility. The other ALF facilities will continue on as they do today. The new plant is located in Jedburg, SC.... so I'd have to say yes, the "Eagle & Metro" chassis will be built in SC.

          When a fire department buys a American Lafrance Aerial truck, the chassis cab is built in the Ladson,SC facility then driven to the PA plant for installation of the" LTI "ladder then driven back to Ladson for the apparatus body ?

            NJFF,

            The Aerial Factory does there own body installation. I believe the Buffalo NY rigs had the Aerial put on them driven to Hamburg for the bodies to be put on. I was also told that when Becker was still up and running every once and a while a Aerial would be shipped out there for a body to be installed by Becker. However the majority of the bodies are built and mounted in Ephrata.

              Pics I shot 3/18/07

              Added some more pics. Interior walls up, and they are starting to put up the sheetrock. Stairs are in so I was able to get on the 2nd floor. Last report I heard they were 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

                        That's been pretty typical of all my customer no-service experiences with ALF.

                                I hope to. I was talking to a friend of mine that works for ALF (Guy Dewey) and I hope he can make it. He is close to retirement and I would like to see him before he does.
