Fouts is committed to developing new fire products that provide industry-best value, quality, and dependability. We’re dedicated to providing our customers with the best service, specifications, and delivery times available anywhere in America.

We design and manufacture a wide range of standard line model trucks to meet the needs of every fire station in the country. Our standard models come equipped with only the highest quality fire equipment brands on the market.

Through the combination of our base design and scalable production platform, we create savings for all of our fire customers, no matter the size of department or type of application.

Our customers receive their trucks in industry-fastest lead time: a typical custom purchase order to delivery lead time is 4-6 months. How do we deliver so fast? With a streamlined 10-week production process fine-tuned for all our standard truck designs.

All purchasing departments participate in a preparation and specification session before their new trucks are committed to the production schedule.

In the fall of 2019, Fouts Brothers Inc. moved its headquarters and main production facility from Smyrna, GA, to Milledgeville, about 90 miles south of Atlanta. The move created production lines for the more than 10,000 trucks the company produces annually.

The company was founded in 1952 by C.J. Fouts. 70 years later, it’s still run by the Fouts family.

Since 1952

In 1952, C.J. Fouts and his brother Jerry started their first business in Smyrna, GA: Fouts Bros Sinclair Service Station. This was the beginning of a 41-year partnership. C.J. and Jerry remained business partners until Jerry’s passing in 1995. Today, Fouts remains family owned and operated, with second and third generation family members in charge of the day-to-day management of the company.

Fouts Bros owners, management and staff realized in our early years that there was a growing need to standardize a 3000 gallon commercial tanker. Designed in cooperation with our valued partners (W.S. Darley, UPF Poly-Tank, and Kenworth) Fouts Bros created the best value fire apparatus in the industry–our flagship 3000 Gallon Tanker–and made it scalable to meet department needs, customizable to exceed their highest expectations.

When Fouts Fire Equipment opened in 1990, we specialized in small custom trucks and used tankers. Over the years, we’ve built a national reputation as a premier apparatus provider of fire apparatus that’s both excellent and affordable.

Following the success of the tanker line, Fouts then incorporated the same production and engineering methods to develop new standard products, including 2000 and 3000 Gallon Tankers, Pumpers, Mini-Rescues and Mini-Pumpers, Brush Attack Trucks, and the Fouts FOUR – a first out utility rescue – launched in 2019.
