Notable Growth in Fire & Emergency Segment
The company experienced significant sales growth in its fire & emergency segment, primarily driven by higher prices and increased shipments of fire apparatus and ambulance units. This successful performance demonstrates REV Group’s dedication to meeting the evolving needs of the emergency services industry.
