"We want to be excellent in every aspect of buying, selling and fixing used fire trucks."-JAMES WESSEL

Founded in 2001, Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus is the largest buyer and seller of used fire trucks in the Western Hemisphere. The business was founded by James Wessel, who is still active in the day to day operations. One of Mr. Wessel’s passions is the fire industry and being a help to support fire departments nationwide. With that passion, he has built BMFA into a unique and dynamic company in the industry selling over 500 fire trucks a year.

Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus is in business to do 3 things with excellence:

1) Buy and sell fire trucks, 2) Help others buy and sell fire trucks, and 3) Provide routine repair and maintenance, collision, and refurbishment services. In our actions, we want to deliver what we say with excellence, with a spirit of service, while demonstrating gratitude and integrity along the way.

"After visiting several dealers and doing a little research our department decided that Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus would be the best choice for our department as they seemed to be superior in every way. Several years have now gone by and they have proven to be superior in customer service and satisfaction. Not only are they able to complete almost all of the work in-house but they are willing to help in any way they can to make sure that your apparatus is satisfactory and that you are comfortable with what you are walking away with.”

-Chris Mills, Chatham Emergency Services
