HOW DO I GET A DEMONSTRATOR UNIT TO VISIT MY FIREHOUSE?

Sutphen has various demonstrator apparatus available throughout the year. Product types tend to vary depending on what has or has not been sold. Sutphen demonstrators sell quickly. It's best to contact your local sales representative to schedule a demo. You can locate your representative on the "DEALERS" page of this web site. Sutphen also attends most major national, regional and local trade shows. A list of these shows can be found on the "EVENTS/LINKS" page of our site.

HAS SUTPHEN EVER MANUFACTURED A REAR-MOUNT AERIAL?

No. The Sutphen organization has always believed whole-heartedly in the mid-mount design. The lower center of gravity and simplicity of aerial operations provide the highest level of safety for firefighters, which is our foremost concern.

DOES SUTPHEN HELP WITH SPONSORSHIPS?

Sutphen does provide sponsorships for various charities and fire training events. However, there are far too many to be involved in every one of them. Please contact your local dealer to get the process started, and to see if your event can be included in the coming year's budget.
