Southern Illinois-based firefighting equipment supplier, Banner Fire Equipment, Inc has hired a new fire apparatus coordinator. Banner’s new coordinator, Brian Bingaman, started on Monday, Jan. 25, and will begin to lead the current sales team through a period of growth for the company.
Bingaman previously worked for Hackney Emergency Vehicles for 16 years and brings with him an extensive knowledge of apparatus sales and service. He has worked with many fire departments to customize apparatus specifications and work within budgetary restrictions.
Bingaman said: “I am excited to be working with Banner Fire as their new apparatus coordinator. I have several years of experience working in fire truck sales and look forward to being able to optimize the process for our customers.”
Bingaman will be working directly with Banner’s apparatus team and E-One in the process of designing and purchasing fire apparatus.
Owner Mike Benker Jr. stated: “We are delighted to bring a talent like Brian to our team. His years of fire apparatus experience and commitment to his customers made him a perfect fit for Banner. We look forward to Brian’s leadership taking our growing team to its full potential.”
Roxana-based Banner Fire began representing E-One sales in the state of Arkansas in 2020 and continues to expand the business further through apparatus maintenance and annual testing.
