Pierce Manufacturing Expands Appleton-Neehah, Wisconsin, Production Facilities
An additional 60,000 square feet of production space will also be added to Pierce’s Neenah, Wisconsin facility, company officials said. Operations are planned for Fall 2022.
“As Pierce continues to develop innovative fire apparatus and technology, demand for our products has grown throughout the fire service community worldwide,” said Mike Kephart, vice president of operations for Pierce Manufacturing.
Product demand has been the main driver for the need to increase space to produce fire trucks. The facility expansion will provide additional space for product assembly, material storage and testing of finished products, officials said.
