Delta, Canada – SEI Industries Ltd. (SEI), is pleased to announce that the world-famous Bambi Bucket just turned thirty. With its easy to use, lightweight, collapsible design, Bambi Bucket revolutionized the aerial firefighting industry in 1982 by improving initial attack response times to wildfires.

“SEI is very proud of the legacy of the Bambi Bucket product but we are also very cognizant that much of our success is a result of the valuable feedback over the years from our end use customers that has led to both product improvement and driven new innovations to meet the needs of the fire suppression industry.” says Shawn Bethel, SEI’s Firefighting Division Manager. “We feel that this relationship with the aerial firefighting community over the years has helped us to make a better bucket and for this, we are truly grateful.”

While SEI is celebrating 30 years of legendary firefighting history they are also marking this milestone with the 2012 launch of a new valve – the Bambi MAX. SEI’s Bambi team encourages participants of HAI’s Heli-Expo in Dallas, Texas to visit booth #812 and ask about SEI’s 30th Anniversary celebrations and to see the latest in innovative helicopter bucketing technology.
