When Engine & Accessory, Inc. started in Miami, Florida in 1950, its business niche was industrial engine rebuilding, a narrowly specialized focus that later evolved into complete truck rebuilding and repair.
By the 1970s, spurred on by rapid growth in the aviation industry, the engineering savvy team at Engine & Accessory enriched their technical capabilities to specialize in refueler repair and refurbishment. With the knowledge gained from working on aviation equipment, the company began a fertile period of creative development that led to the design and manufacture of a new-style custom chassis that took the aircraft refueling industry to new levels in the late 1980s.
With the success of the initial chassis the product line expanded to include a wide range of refueler chassis adopted by major airlines and oil companies. When the business and demands on production grew dramatically throughout the 1990s, Engine & Accessory greeted the new millennium with construction of a state-of-the-art production facility in Miami.
The new facility soon became the site of Engine & Accessory’s most successful business diversification effort since conquering the custom chassis industry: The building and assembling of tank trucks. Serving the refined fuel, heating oil, chemical transport, vacuum, and fire industries throughout the United States, these lines would grow and establish the company in each market and provide a second showcase of highly-skilled manufacturing specialization.
Today, Engine & Accessory stands strong as a three-generation family-owned business with a legacy of cutting-edge manufacturing and exceptional customer service. The tradition continues every day as a dedicated team of engineers, craftsmen and fabricators develop the most reliable, quality-driven chassis and tank trucks available.
