Creating the leading global provider of safety solutions for fleet vehicles, Elkhart Brass was acquired by Safe Fleet in 2015. The merger of Elkhart Brass with FRC and Foam Pro allows the company to develop integrated systems of monitors, valves, foam proportioning and electronic controls for the global emergency market.

Still operating at its original site in Elkhart, Indiana for manufacturing, the location also houses product research and development, engineering, and product testing for Elkhart Brass.

John Simpson, Firefighter and Fire Instructor from Kissimmee, FL says "...over the years I’ve worked for a couple departments here in Florida. We’ve done flow tests and that’s the biggest thing - getting the gallons per minute that you need for the fire attack. We have found Elkhart to be more accurate in their flows than other manufacturers - being able to pump it at a lesser pressure and still getting that flow. With some of the other manufacturers you get kind of a smoke and mirrors type thing. But many of the departments I know that have switched to Elkhart along with mine have lined up the nozzles, compared flows and made sure they are getting the proper flows you need for today’s fire attack."
