  • Mr. Richey,

    We just wanted to take a minute to say “Thank You” to your entire organization  for the superb work and the attention to detail on our Community Engine 32. It turned out great and you by far exceeded our expectations in every way from the minute we came to you until we took delivery. We are very proud of the way this apparatus turned out and we are looking forward to putting it in service very soon. Thank you for treating us like family and making us feel welcome as we came there several times to look over your work. If I had a customer service award I would certainly present it to your staff.

    We look forward to doing business with you in the future.

  • I wanted to personally thank you ( The Anchor Richey Team )  for the fantastic job and generosity , you did  with E90 “Charlotte’s Pink Lady “ . I have only seen pictures of it , but I am very excited to see it up close .  ( I have been bringing my camera to work for a week ! LOL ) It is a wonderful thing and from what I am hearing and I have seen , It is BEAUTIFUL . This is very personal for me,  My Mother ( she is 84) has Breast Cancer and I have 2 personal friends that are fighting the Breast Cancer Battle right now, and  I have lost several people in my life over the years to the disease. The awareness this Fire Truck will generate will be great.  Thankfully ,I also have friends that are survivors of the disease, and I am a firm believer that education and awareness are  key factors in winning the battle against Breast Cancer . I think a PINK Fire Truck passing you going down the street will definitely get people talking .

    Again …. Thank you !

  • We have been very happy with our truck since purchasing it in 2006.  Our salesman Jim McCormick was very accommodating to our needs and additional work we wanted done to the truck before delivery.  The fabrication staff was very helpful in helping us layout our equipment at the shop and were very expedient in completing the fabrication and equipment mounting.  After putting the truck in service we added Pac-Trac mounting panels for additional hand tools.  We were amazed at how much of our equipment  that came off an 18′ truck would fit in this 12′ truck.  We have since been designated the county’s rehab agency and now tow a 30′ trailer with all the additional rehab and medical equipment.  We would definitely recommend AREVS to anyone looking for a new rescue vehicle.  Their trucks are American built and engineered and are equivalent to any of the big names in the business, without the big name price.”
