In 1986 UPF incorporated and the line of the Poly-Tanks® fire truck tanks took off. We continue to develop our product line and it includes more than just fire truck tanks. For instance, replacement bodies for tow trucks and plastic tank liners. In addition many poly tanks for a variety of industries. We make our poly tanks for fire trucks from an exceptional quality polypropylene. We also make our wrecker bodies, utility bodies, toolboxes, and fire and rescue bodies from this same polypropylene. UPF is proud to design and build custom products for all our customers.
Our polypropylene is a strong lightweight plastic, and offers weight savings and eliminates corrosion. Our fire truck tanks and many of our other products is made from this polypropylene and will never rust or corrode. We also offer the fire industry’s best warranty.
UPF is a member of the Fire Apparatus Manufacturers’ Association (FAMA). In addition, we attend many of the fire industry trade shows.
In addition to our outstanding line of tanks for the fire service, UPF has also designed and made available other polypropylene components for fire apparatus. These include rescue toolboxes, air-bottle storage racks, EMS and defibrillator boxes, and other components.
The Ellipse and the Ellip-T-Tank by UPF are the only polypropylene elliptical water tanks backed by UPF’s lifetime warranty. Lighter than stainless steel or fiberglass, these tanks are the strongest non-metallic elliptical tanks available.
