Established in 1989, Golden State Fire Apparatus Inc. is the most established fire apparatus dealership in Central and Northern California. We are a family owned and operated company with a knowledgeable sales and service staff. Consistency can be evidenced through the fact that we have only represented one fire apparatus company during our existence – Pierce Manufacturing Inc.
Pierce Manufacturing celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 2013. Founded in 1913 by Humphrey and Dudley Pierce in Appleton, Pierce Manufacturing first built after-market bodies for Ford Model T chassis. In 1939, the company manufactured its first fire truck body and grew to 20 employees. In 1958, ushering in a new era of boom and platform vehicles, Pierce designed the first ever articulating aerial apparatus that was used to reach up and over tall obstructions. Pierce introduced its first custom chassis and body – the Arrow – in 1982, and that design changed the face of the modern fire industry.
