Tyler Fire Equipment Service Corporation
Tyler Fire Equipment was founded by Wayne and Vickie Tyler in June 1977. Upon returning to Elmira, New York in June 1977, Wayne and Vickie operated the business out of their home. They purchased a small two bay shop in March 1979 to perform apparatus service work and better prepare new apparatus for delivery.
In March 1981 they leased a 3,600 square foot facility enabling them to better perform service work on sold apparatus and expand the service end of the organization. They officially formed TYFESCO, Tyler Fire Equipment Service Corp., on November 4, 1983.
