APPLETON, WI – Celebrating a century of work at Pierce Manufacturing.
For the first time ever, the public was invited to tour the manufacturing plant. They celebrated with fire truck rides, fire and safety education, and a parade.
Pierce has made more than 52,000 fire trucks, and has equipment on every continent.
"I think as people have toured the facility, they recognize the real custom nature of the product that we make, and how important it is to make it exactly the way the firefighter or the fire department wants it,” said Stephen Kohler, Director of Human Resources.
Organizers say more than 10,000 people toured the facility.
