"In 1963, the fire engine division of the Seagrave Corporation was acquired by the Four Wheel Drive (FWD) Corporation, manufacturers of multi-drive, heavy-duty commercial trucks and fire apparatus. FWD had begun in 1907, when brothers-in-law Otto Zachow and William Besserdich, both blacksmiths in Clintonville, WI, developed a four-wheel drive mechanism and fitted it to a Reo touring car. In mid-1963, Seagrave moved its offices and factory into the FWD plant in Clintonville, Wisconsin, where the renamed Seagrave Fire Apparatus, Inc. makes new fire engines to this day."
