Ashland’s Williams Fire launches $1 million expansion as growth sparks

ASHLAND, Alabama – When the emergency call comes in, the fire trucks must be well-equipped and always ready to roll. For many communities in Alabama and Georgia, Matt Williams is the guy who helps make sure the fire rigs are prepared for the job.

His family-owned company in Ashland, Williams Fire Apparatus, has long specialized in selling, outfitting, repairing and maintaining fire trucks for large departments such as Birmingham and DeKalb County, Georgia, as well as volunteer fire departments in communities across the region.

“We make all repairs, fix all wrecks, replace all parts, and do all the planned maintenance work in the middle,” Williams said. “Today, we’re probably working on 12 different fire trucks. Some of them are here in our facility and some are on the road. We do the full gamut of service.
