In 1952, CJ Fouts and his brother, Jerry, established the Fouts Bros. Sinclair Service Station in Smyrna, GA. When Fouts Bros. Fire Equipment opened in 1990, it specialized in small, custom trucks and used tankers. Fouts Bros. has since developed a reputation as a premier provider of affordable fire equipment.
Fouts Bros introduced an industry-best, standardized commercial tanker and made it scalable and customizable to meet department needs and expectations. New standard product lines, including tankers, pumpers, brush attack trucks, and the Fouts FOUR, came next.
In 2019, the headquarters and main production facility moved to Milledgeville, GA. This allowed for production lines for the 7,500 trucks the company produces annually. Today, Fouts Bros. remains family-owned and operated with second and third-generation family members involved in day-to-day operations.
