John McLoughlin and Brian Roherich worked to put together this great installation overview for FRC’s new TurboFoam Direct Injection Foam Proportioning System. This video in no way replaces the installation manual, but it does cover the basics of installation. This is not a sales or operations video! You will not learn how to operate the TurboFoam system here. It describes the steps a truck builder needs to perform to install the new foam system. The audience for this video is District engineers and mechanics, OEM engineering staff, and technically minded folk who want to understand the components of the TurboFoam system.January 8th, 2013

While this doesn’t change the design of our SPECTRA line, it does give us something to crow about! Expect to see updates on our website, promotional materials and labeling as we can implement those changes.
“Congratulations! UL’s investigation of your product(s) has been completed under the above Reference Number and the product was determined to comply with the applicable requirements.”
Shown above is a 12V LED SPECTRA mounted forward. Note to self: please don’t drive to the scene with this light on as you will mostly certainly blind other drivers!November 12th, 2012
FRC was recently featured on our local public access cable TV station (Smithtown Government Television). Brian Roehrich leads the tour of our facilities in this 12 minute video filmed earlier this year (2012) which includes all major production and assembly areas.November 1st, 2012
FRC is located well inland and did not sustain any damage due to the recent storm. We did lose electric and phones for two days but we are up and running and have scheduled overtime *to ensure that deliveries are not impacted*. We appreciate all the good wishes!
Power was restored to FRC late on Oct 31st. Some internal computer systems suffered damage but those have been replaced and operations were in full swing by 1pm Nov 1st. Some employees are still without power in their homes or without telephone service and gas lines have been a hassle. Our main phone lines were out (including our fax line) for another day or two though we were able to operate on backup lines during that time.
