How We Evolved

Clare Weber - founder of Weber's Fabricating and C-Max Fire Solutions
C-Max Fire Solutions was born out of a small pilot project launched by Weber's Fabricating in the late 1980's. Weber's Fabricating was founded by Clare Weber after a turkey loader he built for his father received local acclaim for it's high quality and innovation. The fledgling fabricating company grew rapidly from a home-based operation to a 7000 square foot facility where international recognition resulted in orders from buyers as far away as Holland and Israel.

In 1980, Clare and one his customers designed and built a prototype fireplace insert. The units were so well received in the marketplace that production staff was doubled to add a second shift. An adjacent 7500 square foot building was purchased to add production lines to keep up with demand.

Soon after, the company embarked on the manufacture of aluminum / steel dump bodies which gained immediate praise for their durability and superior design - again necessitating a large expansion of staff and manufacturing space. In 1988 the first Fire Truck was engineered, built and purchased by the Floradale Volunteer Fire Dept.

On January 1, 1990 the standalone division, "C-Max Transportation Equip" was registered to target and devote complete focus to the Fire and Rescue industry. By 2001, C-Max had manufactured 64 Fire Trucks including Pumpers, Rescue Vans & Tankers. On May 1, 2001 Weber’s Fabricating (under the name C-Max Transportation Equip) became Superior Fire Trucks first ever stand alone Service Center to provide warranty service for their Fire & Rescue Group. C-Max eventually shifted their focus to post sales support, preventative maintenance packages, standards testing, training, warranty service, parts installation and repairs to all makes and models. The company prides itself on delivering exceptional customer service supported by a highly skilled staff of certified technicians, mobile testing labs, training instructors, a complete metal fabricating facility and paint & body operation.

In Jan 2010, the name was refined to "C-Max Fire Solutions" and has become one the major fire service companies in the province of Ontario.

Clare Weber’s vision, innovation and passion for engineering and customer service excellence has firmly established the company as a leader in the Fire and Rescue industry. His simple, down-to-earth philosophy has always been “The last customer that walked out the door happy, is the best form of advertising”.
