Seagrave Fire Apparatus LLC is a fire apparatus manufacturer in the United States that specializes in pumper and rescue units, as well as aerial towers. In addition to manufacturing new equipment, they refurbish, repair and upgrade older Seagrave apparatus, including National Fire Protection Association updates to equipment. Seagrave operates manufacturing facilities in Clintonville, Wisconsin, and Rock Hill, South Carolina, and is an authorized General Services Administration vendor and supplies the federal government of the United States with firefighting equipment.

Seagrave was founded in Detroit, Michigan, in 1881 by Fredric Seagrave and moved to Columbus, Ohio, in 1891. Seagrave was acquired by the FWD Corporation in 1963 and moved their corporate headquarters to Clintonville, Wisconsin.

Randolph Lenz, Chair of FWD's parent company, Corsta Corp., became embroiled in a Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation suit and in 2003 all assets of FWD, including FWD Corporation, Seagrave, Baker Aerialscope and Almonte Fire Trucks, were sold to an investment group headed by former American LaFrance executive James Hebe.

Today, the Seagrave group is a flagship company of ELB Capital Management.

The Aerialscope is a line of elevated platforms, introduced in the mid-1960s, later bought and sold by Baker Equipment & Engineering Company. The Aerialscope has been a favorite of the FDNY which has operated several tower ladders since 1964. FDNY Aerialscopes were initially delivered on Mack C chassis, and later the CF600. After production of the CF600 ceased in 1990, FWD (Seagrave parent/sister company), Simon-Duplex, Spartan, and later Seagrave chassis were used. Aerialscopes were also delivered to other departments in the United States and Canada, and ex-FDNY tower ladders have been used by smaller departments.

Seagrave Corporation purchased the Aerialscope product from Baker in 1999 and moved production to Wisconsin. Seagrave continues to build the Aerialscope II.
