ADM Aéroports de Montréal Taking Delivery of Five Oshkosh Airport Products Striker 6×6 ARFF Vehicles

Oshkosh Airport Products, a division of Pierce Manufacturing Inc., and a subsidiary of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE: OSK), announced ADM Aéroports de Montréal has taken delivery of five Oshkosh Airport Products Striker® 6×6 ARFF vehicles.

The Oshkosh® Striker® 6×6 ARFF vehicles will support emergency operations for YUL Montréal-Trudeau International Airport and YMX International Aerocity of Mirabel in Québec, Canada

The vehicles will support emergency operations at two of the province’s largest airfields, YUL Montréal-Trudeau International Airport – which now serve over 21 million travelers annually – and YMX International Aerocity of Mirabel.

ADM’s new ARFF vehicles were sold by Commercial Emergency Equipment Co., in cooperation with L’Arsenal in Quebec province. Aftermarket service and parts for the vehicles will be provided locally by L’Arsenal.

Jack Bermingham, business unit director for Oshkosh Airport Products, said:

“This project represents one of the largest single non-military ARFF sales in Canadian aviation history.

“ADM’s retirement of a fleet of existing Strikers for this replacement order clearly demonstrates the ongoing trust they have in Oshkosh. Alongside the Commercial Emergency Equipment and L’Arsenal teams, we are proud to continue this long-standing relationship by once again providing leading edge ARFF vehicles, and dedicated service and support from our dealers and support network.”

Stéphane Larin, Director, Security, Operations and Fire Department at ADM Aéroports de Montréal, said:

“The acquisition of these new vehicles is part of a drive to modernize ADM Aéroports de Montréal’s equipment and will enable us to respond more quickly and efficiently to incidents requiring firefighting services. We would like to thank our long-time partner Oshkosh for its support and the quality of these high-performance Strikers.”

Three of the five Striker vehicles feature a Snozzle® high-reach extendable turret, and two feature standard roof turrets. All five vehicles are equipped with low-attack bumper turrets.
