Bickle Fire Engine Company / Bickle-Seagrave was a Canadian fire apparatus manufacturer located in Woodstock, Ontario.

HistoryEdit

Bickle was formed in 1915 and built their first fire truck the same year. In 1936, the company entered into a partnership with Seagrave Fire Apparatus, becoming Seagrave's sole distributor in Canada. Bickle changed its name to Bickle-Seagrave and built trucks on custom and commercial chassis until it went out of business in 1956. That same year, the founder's nephew, Vernon King, resurrected the company as King-Seagrave, which continued to build fire apparatus until 1985.
