Looks like KME lost the contract for failure to perform.  Seagrave is back:

Hearing a rumor that KME failed to meet some conditions / requirements and lost the contract. Apparently the contract has been awarded to Seagrave
How Reliable is your source? It would certainly be a major issue if it really happened. Ha67s a major contract like this ever been told previously?

Thanks for the information. I wonder what part of the terms and conditions they didn't meet? Must've been something pretty major to get the contract pulled!

Read on another site that Kovatch did not meet delivery times, and told FDNY they would not delay their other customers' orders to speed up FDNY deliveries.

Just spoke to my ( rabbi ) who after 20+ years retired from KME recently. He had told me even in the past that there's no supervision after being bought or by REV..
REV is currently seeking Spartan to join the group

REV and Spartan?

The last KME that was delivered after months ago is assigned to E- 312.  The rig is KP1800

This rig was add-on to the last contract

As far as the contract KME forfitted there were NO pumpers in production and no delivery's were made .

Kind of hard to believe that KME would screw up a major contract like this. You would think they would know their build capacity when bidding on large unit orders like this. I wonder if the question is they were not making much money on them so they didn't mind losing them compared to many other orders.

And that doesn't consider their costs for all the warranty work they've had to do. Might well have decided it wasn't worth it.
