Company Introduction: 

Company Introduction Brighton Diesel has been in business since 1989. Over the years we have developed a reputation of honesty and quality with our customers. We are currently serving over 300 customers and grossing approximately 1 million dollars annually. Our current fire department customers include the City of Brighton, Brighton Township, Hamburg, Howell, Kentwood, Walled Lake, Sterling Heights, Hamtramck, Grosse Pointe Farms, Plainwell, and Grand Rapids.


Services We can provide many services in your engine house or even roadside, with two (2) road service trucks that can do small and heavy repairs. Repairs that are too large for roadside or in house work only require a trip to Whitmore Lake, not out of state to the factory. Our factory trained mechanics have extensive accredations.
