Walter Motor Truck Co (1909 - 1982 - Queens & Vorheeville, NY): My dad was a VP at Walter from the mid 70's until they went belly up in the early 80's. I remember growing up in Guilderland NY and spending Saturdays with my dad at the plant in Voorheesville. (i was probably 7 to 12 years old during this period)  It was cool when they took the trucks over to the test field to test the pump nozzles/turrets.

Waterous Co (1922 - 1929 - St. Paul, MN): Waterous Company History By Ronald Pearson

Wilcox Trux (H.E. Wilcox Motor Co) (1906 - 1926 - Minneapolis, MN): Wilcox Trux History By Ronald Pearson

Will, C.H. Motor Co (1926 - 1930 - Minneapolis, MN): Regarding C.H.Will Motors, it was originally the H.E. Wilcox Motor Car Company also doing business as Wilcox Trux. Will bought out Wilcox in 1926. It was the Waterous Fire Engine Company that used the Wilcox Trux chassis for a period of time for their standard name bearing-build before switching to the Sanford chassis after Wilcox sold out to Will. Ron Pearson

Wilson Fire Apparatus Inc (1981 - 2000 - Van Buren, AR): Wilson was the Howe dealer in AR from the 60s until their demise, he also did repair and refurb work and built skid units. After Howe went under he began building fire apparatus, he built on commercial chassis only -  and basically "one off" Most sold in Arkansas , Oklahoma and Texas, I heard one of the last he built , a Freightliner FL70 ,went to New York state. They were a basic truck , along the lines of Boardman. The last I heard he was in the trucking business. One side note, Mr. Wilson claimed to be the innovator of the top mt pump panel. Said he gave the idea to the engineers at Howe. Its a shame Howe went out of business, there are still many Howes , Mr. Wilson sold in AR still in front line service.
