Grumman Allied Industries acquired Howe Fire Apparatus in 1976. The Grumman Emergency Products division built on the foundation laid by the legendary Howe and Oren names and soon became one of the largest and most well-known producers of fire apparatuses in the United States. Grumman introduced innovation and space-age technology to the fire apparatus industry in the short span of just 16 years. This book highlights the wide range of pumpers, tankers, and aerials built by Grumman on commercial and custom chassis with model names such as the Minicat, Attackcat, Wildcat, Firecat, Aerialcat, and Panther.
