We invented the Aluminum Fire Ladder!
Since 1930, the Alco-Lite name has been synonymous with quality, dependability, and service. For these reasons, all types of departments - paid and volunteer, large and small - throughout the United States and the world, use Alco-Lite fire ladders.
Founded by Samuel Carbis, the Aluminum Ladder Company began producing fire ladders at the request of the Oslo fire department. They were in need of a large extension ladder, which would not be too heavy for their firefighters to lift - soon an industry was born.
Today, almost 75 years later, Sam Carbis Solutions Group is still manufacturing the ladders that firefighters depend on to protect them while they protect and serve. All Alco-Lite fire department ground ladders meet or exceed NFPA standards and are completely field repairable.
With a complete line of aluminum and fiberglass ladders, Sam Carbis Solutions Group is here to serve the fire service with ladders that stand the test of time. That is why, “it only makes sense to buy your fire ladders from the people who invented them.”
