Our Kernersville, NC team members were proud to complete a recent build for Modern Chevrolet in Winston-Salem, NC. This was a special project. Modern Chevrolet needed the truck for the upcoming South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo, and the schedule was tight.
The South Atlantic Fire Rescue Expo (SAFRE), was created by the North Carolina State Firefighters’ Association (NCSFA) as an expansion of their annual conference and business meeting back in 2009. Since then, SAFRE has grown into one of the largest and most popular regional fire-rescue service conferences, conventions and expos. This year was the 135th annual convention, and took place in Raleigh, NC.
The build for Modern Chevrolet was a total team effort. The timing was a challenge but the Modern Chevrolet and the Monroe Truck Equipment teams rose to the occasion. The team was able to get a red Chevrolet 5500 and install a CM 9.5’ Aluminum SK Deluxe and a custom C-Tech tool box in the deluxe model’s tall front cabinet. This turned out to be a great addition, and our team anticipates that more first responders will request builds like this.
We cannot thank the team enough for all their efforts on this quick build! From the sales team believing we could do it; to purchasing getting everything in on time; to scheduling working it into the already hectic schedule; to our shop doing what they do day in and day out – building top quality trucks!
