Niedner will attend the 2017 FDIC

Once again Niedner will be attending the FDIC 2017 tradeshow in Indianapolis IN.  We invite you to come see us at booth 701 in the Indiana Convention Center.  We will be there from Thursday, April 27th thru Saturday, April 29th.  We will be showing an array of Municipal, Industrial, Forestry and SLDH (Super large diameter hose) products as well as our distinctive hose testers & accessories. 

This year we will spice things up with a “Find the colored ball” drawing that can win you a 5/8” x 50 ft. Yellow ECONOFLO hose with Brass GHT Coupling set, complete with Nozzle and Pouch.  You simply have to draw a colored ball from the box to win ... how lucky do you feel?  Come see us and find out.  We look forward to seeing you there. 

For those of you who have met our David Lord, R&D Director, please note that he retired back in December 2016 however, has graciously agreed to come to the FDIC one more time to say farewell to his friends and acquaintances.  Be sure to drop by and wish him a happy retirement.

Pumpkin Center Volunteer Fire Department

At Pumpkin Center VFD, we strive to give our members quality equipment to use at all times. We’ve found over the years that small details make huge differences. Our equipment committee is always asking the question “Is something better out there?” We stay abreast of current industry trends and investigate the latest and greatest from equipment manufacturers to make sure our guys and girls have what they need to do the job and do it well. In 2009 we were tired of the fire hose we had been purchasing and bought some Niedner XL-800. The hose is still in service today. During this time we’ve found that in addition to being durable, it rolls up extremely tightly, packs tightly in hose beds and is lightweight, which lessens fatigue on members. With a comparable friction loss rate to much other hose in the industry, our committee has yet to find a reason to leave Niedner. We had several sections of cloth Niedner 4 inch supply hose before switching to 5 inch as well. It was the best supply hose I’ve ever seen or used.
