South West Fire was formed in 1994 in response to a State Government initiative to privatise the non-core activities of government departments. One of the key areas of operation to be privatised by the Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM) was the design and construction of fire appliances. Forester Glyn Yates, Mechanic Colin Giles and one other director took the opportunity to commence the construction of fire appliances as a private business
South West Fire has continued to do work on behalf of CALM, other government departments such as the Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA) and forestry and mining companies such as WA Plantation Resources, Integrated Tree Cropping, Great Southern Plantations and Worsley Alumina.
The company was established to supply a core client base in Western Australia. Over the last 10 years, the company has expanded to supply equipment to other Australian states and to international clients.
