Ferrara offers a custom-design process that gives the customer input into how the truck will be built. The manufacturing facility has a floor area of nearly 300,000 square feet and was built by Firmin Construction Corporation.

In 2017, Ferrara Fire Apparatus became a wholly owned subsidiary after being acquired by the REV Group.


Ferrara Fire Apparatus manufactures a wide variety of fire apparatus including the MVP Rescue Pumper, Custom Pumpers, Aerial Ladders, Aerial Platforms, Industrial Pumpers, Tankers, Rescue, and Wildland trucks.

Ferrara's new Inundator Super Pumper is considered to be the world's largest capacity NFPA-rated fire engine. This truck contains a pump capable of freely moving 5500 GPM from draft. This figure can rise to 10,000 GPM or more if the pump intake is connected to a pressurized source, such as a municipal water source.
