Burton's Fire, Inc. was established in 1991 by brothers Ken and John Burton. Burton’s operates out of a 23,000 square foot shop  and currently has twenty five employees. We gained experience in building and repairing fire trucks by working for Van Pelt Fire Trucks (later purchased by FMC Fire Apparatus), for more than thirteen years after we graduated from high school, until the plant was closed.

We have our own shear and brake to provide custom in-house aluminum or metal fabrication. Our Parts Department is stocked with over $650,000 of fire truck repair parts. In most cases, if we don’t have a part in stock, we can have it shipped to our customer overnight.

Burton's Fire, Inc. is a complete fire apparatus repair shop specializing in:

  • Chassis Changeovers

  • Pump Rebuilding

  • Wreck Repairs

  • Foam System Installations

  • Electrical Troubleshooting

  • Modifications

  • Refurbishes
