The 25,000-square foot facility is equipped with manufacturing and assembly areas, several service bays, a 65-foot long drive-through paint booth and sales and engineering offices. The building is situated on 7 acres of serviced industrial land, should future expansion be required.

“Everything goes full circle, said Eastway president neil Greene. “My father first bought this building in the 80s and fire trucks have been produced there ever since, first by Almonte Fire Trucks and then by Seagrave.
“This acquisition helps solidify our position as the pre-eminent Canadian manufacturer of high quality custom built fire apparatus. We have been making fire trucks for over 40 years under the Eastway and Almonte banners”

Eastway is scheduled to begin manufacturing at the Carleton Place facility on April 1.
