Seagrave Fire Trucks

Seagrave is one of the most respected names in fire apparatus manufacturing. The company was founded in Detroit in 1881 by Frederick S. Seagrave, who got his start making ladders for northern Michigan fruit orchards and soon was making fire ladders and hand-drawn ladder trucks. By 1886, he was producing hook-and-ladder trucks.

The firm moved to Columbus, Ohio, in 1891 as Seagrave and Company. By 1902, it was building the highly successful Seagrave Spring Hoist Aerial Ladder and by 1907, was offering motor-driven fire apparatus powered by air-cooled engines of its own design.

Since 1963, Seagrave has been operated in Clintonville, Wisconsin, by the FWD Corporation.
