Newsletter - May 2018

This is the sixth CET monthly Newsletter. Each month we will bring you information for powerful fire ground solutions involving the products we make. 

We will highlight one of our CET equipment dealers, and one of our employees -to give you an opportunity to get to know us a little better- and our dealers who are out there working hard for you everyday. Additionally, we have a “Did You Know” segment to provide factoids on news you can use, and will provide industry news as it becomes available. Let us know what you think. If there are additional topics you feel would be useful to include in our newsletter, please reach out and let us know.

 CET had a really great show at this year’s FDIC in Indianapolis, IN April 26-28.   Our booth featured a new Brush Truck which was delivered after the show , along with three different models of Skid Units and many portable pumps – including floating pumps, mid-range pumps and a Cart Pump.   Additionally we had an Intimidator UTV in the booth which has up to a 1400 pound payload capacity that now allows us to offer a 100 gallon water tank with our UTV fire fighting package.   All three sides of the UTV fold down for easy access to equipment and pump from any angle.

In addition to the show, CET hosted our second annual Dealer Open House at the Severin Bar in the Omni Severin Hotel downtown.  The event ran from 4pm to 8pm and we had over 240 dealer participants from all over the U.S., Canada, and several dealerships from overseas.   Our way of saying thank you to our dealers who work with us to sell and service our products around the globe.
