6/14/2013 Pierce Manufacturing Announces 100th Anniversary Open House and Fire Truck Parade on July 13
APPLETON, Wis. (June 12, 2013) - Pierce Manufacturing Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation [NYSE: OSK] company, announces a Pierce 100th Anniversary Open House for
the public on Saturday, July 13. The festivities will begin with a
Pierce® fire truck parade at 11:00 a.m. on American Drive. Immediately
following the parade, the celebration will continue at Pierce
headquarters with a 100th Anniversary ceremony and the company's first-ever public open house, featuring a variety of activities until 4:00 p.m.
"From modest beginnings in the Fox Valley in 1913, Pierce has grown to
become one of the world's largest and most respected manufacturers of
fire and rescue apparatus; it wouldn't be possible without strong
support from this community," said Jim Johnson, Oshkosh Corporation
executive vice president and president Fire & Emergency. "During our
centennial year, we believe it's fitting to share the celebration by
opening Pierce's doors to our friends and neighbors."
The Pierce fire truck parade will run along American Drive between
Prospect Avenue and Shady Lane. Pierce is happy to welcome fire
departments from the region to be part of the celebration and drive
their Pierce fire truck in the parade. In addition, firefighters are
invited to walk in the parade in uniform. Other Open House events
include tours of the Pierce manufacturing plant (2600 American Drive,
Appleton) kids' activities, fire truck rides, a Pierce history display,
and interactive fire safety education. For more information and
registration details on participating in the parade, visit www.piercemfg.com/100thOpenHouse.
The celebration will continue on July 14 when Pierce hosts a Pierce 100th
Anniversary 9-11 Memorial Stair Climb at Lambeau Field to benefit the
National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. For more information and to
