Sides is onderdeel van de Kidde groep en exporteerd bijna 3/4 van haar producten. Sides bouwt ondermeer tankautospuiten, bosbrandbestrijdingsvoertuigen, hulpverlenings-voertuigen, schuimblusvoertuigen en vliegveld brandweer-wagens. Veel Renaults vormen de basis van deze speciale voertuigen. Ook de R-serie kwam in het programma voor.
