Hi-Tech Emergency Vehicle Service Inc. is an American fire apparatus manufacturer and dealer located in Oakdale, California.


The company was founded in 1987 by four former employees of P.E. Van Pelt after FMC ceased production at Van Pelt's Oakdale, CA factory. Initially, the company rebuilt and rehabbed trucks before moving into manufacture in the early 1990s. Hi-Tech is also a dealer for Toyne and EVI, and was previously a distributor for Spartan ERV and American LaFrance.


Hi-Tech builds pumpers, tankers, rescues, wildlands and specialty vehicles on both custom and commercial chassis. They've also rebuilt a number of older rigs.
