FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 25, 2010 - Westmore, Vermont –– KIMTEK Corporation partners with the best fire equipment producers to provide added value to firefighters and those they protect. The company’s goal was to produce premium firefighting skid units for UTVs and pick-up beds. These products had to be high quality and reliable but at an affordable price.
Kimtek skid units are designed, assembled, and detailed by craftsmen utilizing the best materials and the highest manufacturing standards. Added components and accessories also had to meet high standards of manufacturing and reliability. Research found those standards were met by Darley-Davey® pumps, Hannay reels, and Scotty foam systems. With these high quality, reliable systems integrated into Kimtek’s FIRELITE® skid units, fire services have the right tools at hand to protect the public.
Firelite skid units are constructed of bright aluminum diamond plate with an aluminum tubing sub-frame. The units feature a stationary Darley-Davey two stage high pressure pump with all metal piping and valves, a fully integrated poly water tank with sight gauge, a Hannay series 4000 reel (with an optional electric rewind upgrade) with booster hose, an optional Scotty 4071 “around-the-pump” foam system and a rescue area to carry a long board or a stokes basket for patient transport.
Kimtek Corporation was founded in 1984 as a research and development company dedicated to advances in life safety technology in the fire sciences. Kimtek manufactures and markets FIRELITE® and MEDLITE® Transport skid units for emergency service UTVs and pick-up trucks. More than 850 units are in service in 49 states and three provinces.
