MacQueen Emergency Now Offers MSA and Globe Products in Minnesota

ST. PAUL, Minn. – MacQueen Emergency has acquired Minnesota-based Emergency Response Solutions (ERS)—the leading fire equipment supplier for the state.

With this acquisition, MacQueen Emergency will add several premier emergency brands to their Minnesota portfolio, including MSA safety equipment and GLOBE turnout gear.

MacQueen Emergency is one of the largest fire apparatus dealers in the U.S., representing Pierce® Manufacturing, Skeeter Brush Trucks and E.J. Metals in seven states: Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. In addition to mobile service, MacQueen operates 10 service locations throughout the Midwest, repairing all makes and models of fire apparatuses, rescue vehicles and heavy equipment.

MacQueen Emergency also offers complete apparatus upfitting solutions, ensuring that each department served has access to the latest best-in-class products and custom vehicle solutions firefighters need.

“We’re excited to add ERS personnel and products to our team. Our goal is to provide fire departments in Minnesota with a complete package of firefighting solutions—not just the truck but the tools and gear firefighters need to do their jobs safely and effectively,” said MacQueen CEO Dan Gage. “This partnership is going help us do that.”

ERS is currently headquartered in East Bethel, Minnesota, and has been serving fire departments in Minnesota for nearly a decade.

“I’m very proud of what our organization has achieved,” said ERS President Brian Bramley. “We trust MacQueen Emergency is the right fit to continue the ERS legacy of providing Minnesota firefighters with the best life-saving products, service and support.”
