Our mission is to give rescuers the tools to save lives. We work to create the best rescue systems for this lofty goal. Only tools of the highest quality are good enough. Nothing else. At AMKUS, quality means life!
It is with great pleasure and excitement that Task Force Tips, Inc., with world headquarters in Valparaiso Indiana, announces the acquisition of AMKUS Rescue Systems of Downers Grove Illinois. As a leader in the development and delivery of high performance firefighting products to emergency responders worldwide, TFT is proud to carry on the traditions of quality, service, and dependability that have been the hallmark of the AMKUS organization since 1971.
With new product innovation, and a continued commitment to the support and growth of our distribution partners as a primary initiative, all engineering, service and manufacturing operations will eventually transition from the Illinois location to a new facility in Valparaiso.
While AMKUS Rescue Systems will maintain its own unique identity with its own distribution network, field managers, and marketing message, it will share TFT’s extensive research, development and new product innovation resources. Task Force Tips’ passion for developing products that save lives and protect property is a perfect fit for the continued expansion of the AMKUS Rescue System’s product line and the shared commitment to emergency service professionals to provide innovative new products and world-class service and support.
During this transition period, the following addresses and phone numbers will be available;
AMKUS Rescue Systems — Illinois Operations
2700 Wisconsin Avenue, Downers Grove IL 60515
AMKUS Rescue Systems — Indiana Operations
4201 Montdale Park Drive, Valparaiso, IN 46383
