Ace Ohlsson has been appointed a “Gold Distributor” for Aussie Pump products in the Hawkesbury area. Strategically located on Pitt Town Road, McGrath Hill, Ace Ohlsson offers the full range of Aussie fire fighting pumps.

The company’s founder, Ian Downey, is a great believer in the importance of self- reliance when it comes to bushfire property protection.

Ace Ohlsson are primed with Aussie’s popular Fire Chief. The Aussie Fire Chief, developed for Australian bushfire fighting conditions and is lauded internationally as the world’s best lightweight fire pump. The Fire Chief has a genuine Honda engine and like all Aussie pumps is covered with a unique five year warranty.

“We see a partnership with Aussie Pumps as a major step forward in providing quality fire pumps to business and families in the Hawkesbury region,” said Ian Downey. “We’ve seen a growing demand from farmers and homeowners looking to protect their properties this year’s fire season. There’s as a revolt against third world products that might be cheap, but could let you down,” he said.

Ace Ohlsson can also supply free copies of the Aussie Bushfire Survival Guide. This guide outlines the essentials of bushfire protection, equipment checklists, fire drills and pump maintenance. This year’s guide has been expanded to include information to minimise the risk to livestock.

Australian Pumps’ Pump Divisional Manager, Brad Farrugia said, “We congratulate Ian Downey on signing up with us as the Gold Distributor for the region. We know that Ian will do a great job supported by his proactive team.”
