Rosenbauer America and North American Fire Equipment Company, Inc. (NAFECO) have announced they will be expanding their partnership into the state of Florida. Rosenbauer first joined forces with NAFECO in January 2021 to provide sales and service in the southeastern United States. Due to overwhelming success in Alabama, Tennessee, and Georgia, Rosenbauer’s partnership with NAFECO has been expanded to include the state of Florida, effective April 2021.
“Florida is one of the largest and most concentrated markets for fire apparatus in North America” said Mark Fusco, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for Rosenbauer America. “Rosenbauer is honored and confident to further partner with NAFECO to support, sell and service fire departments and communities throughout Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and now Florida”.
Founded in 1968 by Jerrell Oaks, NAFECO began its half-century in business by providing fire extinguisher service and sales to factories and other companies in the area. Over the course of its 50-year history, the company developed into a full-line distributor for fire, law enforcement, and industrial safety apparel and equipment, including fire apparatus, ambulances, and ATV/UTV-mounted skid units.
“NAFECO is excited to expand our partnership with Rosenbauer in the State of Florida,” added Jerrell Oaks, CEO and founder of NAFECO. “We have established a team that is ready and willing to support this great opportunity and product throughout the state. We are fully committed to supporting the existing Rosenbauer customer base and look forward to adding more customers to the Rosenbauer and NAFECO family.”
Headquartered in Decatur, Alabama, NAFECO has 125 employees supporting their four branch offices in the southeastern United States and has territory managers located in 12 states.
