Sutphen sets the standard for engineering excellence, technology, innovation, and durability in the fire apparatus industry. Sutphen was founded in 1890; making it the oldest continuously owned and operated fire apparatus manufacturer in the country. Never reorganized, owned, or operated by anyone other than a Sutphen, the family atmosphere is unmistakable. Sutphen produces all types of fire related vehicles on their own chassis including the usual engines, ladders, tankers, and rescues but also provides bodies for commercial chassis applications. The company strictly produces mid-mount aerials as a tower ladder platform (with a bucket/basket), and mid or rear-mount in a ladder tower form (no bucket), plus industrial application aerials. All Sutphen aerials are made of Aluminum alloys and fastened with aircraft-type Huck Bolts. The...
We all love hearing an inspiring story. Just the other day, a friend who works in our office building, stopped by our offices and was explaining to her friend what we do here at 3DVision Technologies. As she was explaining the Stratasys 3D Printers to her friend, I just happen to walk by. I introduced myself and shared a little bit about the technology and gave them a newly 3D printed fidget spinner to take with them. Little did either of us know until a couple days later, what impact this little gift would make on a close friend’s autistic son. In her own words, you can read the touching story below. Dear 3DVision Technologies, I would like to share with...
