Apparatus Information

  • This old fire truck would make a good collector's rig, or parade piece for a Volunteer Fire Department, or a Fire Fighter who just wants their own rig to make local appearances.

  • FMC Corporation, also known John Bean or the John Bean Fire Apparatus Division of FMC, was was a fire apparatus manufacturer located in Lansing, Michigan, Tipton, Indiana, Orlando, Florida and Oakdale, California. The origins of FMC fire trucks stretch back to the 1884 formation of the Bean Spray Pump Company in California. Bean designed and built agricultural sprayers for orchards. The company changed its name to John Bean Mfg. Company in 1915 and, after purchasing other companies in the food canning industry, changed its name again to Food Machinery Corporation, or FMC. During the Second World War, FMC built tracked amphibious landing vehicles for the US military. In 1948, the name of the company changed to Food Machinery and Chemical Corporation, retaining the same initials. In 1961, it became simply FMC Corporation. FMC continued its military work and was well-known for building the internationally exported M-113 armoured personnel carrier and the M-2 Bradley armoured fighting vehicle. John Bean's involvement in the firefighting industry began in the late 1930s when someone used one of their agricultural sprayers to fight a fire. Once the company became aware of this development, they created a high pressure "fog" system to fight fires. This system was used during the war to fight fires on board US Navy ships. After the war, production of the Fog Fire Fighter and sold thousands across the United States in the following decades. Most were built on conventional chassis supplied by the fire department. By the mid-1950s, FMC had diversified its offerings to include mini-pumpers, triple combination pumpers and city service ladder trucks. Aerial ladders were added in the 1960s, using ladders built by Grove or Memco. And FMC was one of the first manufacturers to use custom chassis built by Spartan Motors. In 1978, FMC acquired California apparatus manufacturer Van Pelt. In 1990, FMC shut down their fire apparatus division and production wound down. FMC now produces chemicals and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The defence (United Defense), oil and gas manufacturing (FMC Technologies) and construction equipment (Link-Belt) divisions were spun off into separate entities.
