Superior was founded in 1973 by partners Butch Barthel, Bob Mather and Barry Skinner. Barthel and Mather had previously worked for Saskatoon Fire Engines, another western Canada fire truck manufacturer. Superior started building pumpers and tankers for smaller fire departments in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
By 1989, Superior was Canada's largest fire apparatus company. Florida's Emergency One came calling and purchased 100% of the company from the founders in 1991. At first, Superior served the Canadian market, but later became E-One's builder of light rescues and brush trucks. The company changed its name to E-One Canada in 2003.

In 2006, E-One announced that it was shutting down operations in Red Deer and the plant wound down production by the end of that year.
