Posted on July 19, 2007

Federal Signal Corp. has announced changes in the organization of its Fire Rescue Group. Effective immediately, Peter Guile has been named president of E-One, with responsibility for the company's US-based fire apparatus business. Guile most recently served as division president of the industrial systems business within the Safety and Security Systems Group. Guile will report to Federal Signal's President and CEO Robert Welding.

Separately, Esa Peltola, vice president and general manager of Bronto Skylift in Finland, has been named president of that business, and will also report directly to Welding. The Bronto articulated aerial platform for the firefighting industry will continue to be distributed in the North American market exclusively by E- One.

Marc Gustafson, previously president of the Fire Rescue Group, is leaving the company, Federal Signal said..

"This change in the organization will enable the U.S.-based E-ONE management team, to focus on restoring business profitability and regaining its market share,” President and CEO Robert D. Welding said.
