  • VALPARAISO, IN – AMKUS Rescue Systems, an industry leader in providing cutting edge hydraulic extrication equipment and rescue systems to emergency responders worldwide, announces its intent to acquire 911 Tools, a US manufacturer of vehicle stabilization equipment and lifting systems.

    “This is a patented, state-of-the-art system that integrates the strength, speed, control and dependability of hand-powered hydraulics with the structural components of the strut,” said Kyle Smith, president of AMKUS Rescue Systems. “It’s an affordable system that’s easy to set up and operate, and is rated for structural loads, so rescue professionals can confidently raise and lower materials as quickly as the circumstances of their particular emergency requires.”

    The 911 Tools rescue strut product line, which is marketed under the RescueStrut brand name, includes accessories that will allow emergency responders to transform vehicle stabilization struts into other life-saving rescue tools such as manual hydraulic rams and shoring struts, as well as tri-pod, bi-pod and mono-pole adapters for use in rope rescue scenarios. In addition, the RescueStrut system can be easily configured for trench, structural collapse or confined space rescues.

    “Not only does this complement our existing AMKUS line of extrication equipment and rope rescue systems, but it also puts us in the position to offer a wider range of high quality rescue products to our customers at an affordable price.” Smith added. “This acquisition further supports our efforts to provide the best in class rescue systems to our global market.”

    Following the expected August 1st completion of the acquisition, 911 Tools will move from its current Lansing, IA home to the newly completed AMKUS World Headquarters in Valparaiso, IN. The RescueStrut line of equipment will then be marketed under the AMKUS brand, and distributed by AMKUS and 911 Tool distributors within their existing territories.
