About this creation
Kovatch Mobile Equipment - KME - is one of the leading manufacturers of fire apparatus in America. The story of KME goes back to 1946 when John “Sonny” Kovatch returned from the Army and opened a small auto repair business in his hometown of Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania. Over the next few years, he acquired a number of automobile franchises. Kovatch entered the specialty vehicle manufacturing business in the 1970’s. The company has grown to include petroleum transport vehicles and such as aircraft refuelers for the US Air Force. Kovatch also has expanded to include law enforcement vehicles for police and security departments, EMS vehicles as well a wide range of fleet vehicles and commercial trucks. The KME Fire Apparatus Division manufactures its own custom chassis and distributes a wide variety of commercial chassis.
In 1992 KME acquired the assets of Grumman Fire Apparatus, including the Aerialcat line of aerial devices. These were engineered and designed by Grumman's Aerospace Division. Grumman previously acquired Oren and Howe Fire Apparatus in 1976. Howe's roots go back to 1892 and Oren's to 1917.

John J. Kovatch, III, now is the CEO and President of the Kovatch Organization. There are over 700 employees between the headquarters in Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania, as well as factory branches in Ontario, California, Albany, New York and Roanoke, Virginia. The Roanoke facility is a former Grumman Facility and the Aerialcat ladders and towers still are built there. BFD552@gmail.com.

Excellent work. Again, your attention to detail makes your engines look fantastic. The history lesson on the manufacturers you add gives it a more personal touch. Thanks for sharing.

As always, the match of a great build and a very informative and enjoyable history makes this great. I love KME's trucks, and you do a great job on your KMEs. On this one specifically, I love the body and the pump panel. Great wok as always!

At first glance, I thought you had uploaded your Seagrave Maraduer engine. But no! Very very very nice creation here. Personally I have never been a fan of KME, but you have pulled this off excellently. I might have to see about adding a KME to my department! I think the biggest seller on this rig is the grill, it looks exactly like a KME engine. Again great truck!
