Company now has 12 centers across the U.S.
FS Solutions, a source for industrial cleaning contractors across the U.S., celebrated 21 years in business.
In 1996, Federal Signal Corp. opened its first retail outlet in Pasadena, Texas, to service the large concentration of Guzzler vacuum truck customers in the greater Houston area. Known as “the Guzzler Store,” the small location, staffed by a manager and a mechanic, featured two service bays, a parts room and an office.
“That original retail outlet was established to provide industrial cleaning customers with prompt parts support and expert service,” said Craig Aspinall, general manager, FS Solutions. “Since then, FS Solutions has become known as the one-stop shop for repairs, rentals, used equipment, parts and accessories, and training,”
FS Solutions has continued to expand parts, service and rental offerings to meet the growing demands of customers. As extensions of the Environmental Solutions Group’s manufacturing centers, the FS Solutions service centers provide a level of expertise to meet customer needs for professional repair and rebuild services on their equipment. The company’s rental offerings include a variety of industrial vacuum trucks, waterblasters, vacuum excavators, DOT liquid vacuum trucks, vacuum trailers, combo vacs, tools and accessories for short- or long-term needs.
“The company combines the leading brand technologies of the Environmental Solutions Group with inventive, nimble engineering and manufacturing capabilities to offer customers such tailored solutions as a specially designed high-rail jetter for fire-fighting applications along rail lines and in rail yards, or a completely custom-built vacuum truck with an extended body length for a larger debris body and a redesigned sub-frame and fender system for maximum overhead clearance,” Aspinall said.
There currently are 12 FS Solutions centers, located in Leeds, Ala.; Long Beach, Calif.; Streator, Ill.; Highland, Ind.; Gonzales, La.; New Brunswick, N.J.; Williston, N.D.; Toledo, Ohio; Lexington, S.C.; La Porte, Texas; Midland, Texas; and Tacoma, Wash.
“Our continued success and expansion is reflected by the many customers we are proud to support,” Aspinall said. “We thank all of our customers for contributing to our growth, and we thank our employees for their commitment and dedication."
