Williams Brothers products

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I remember reading a few threads where modellers here were lamenting the loss of Williams brothers products (fake radials, scale guns, wheels etc)

I just read this press release; been out awhile but at least good news. If it's already been covered, couldn't find it here but anyway...



The following is a press release for Williams Brothers Model Products:

Changing of the Guard...
In December of 2004, Williams Brothers, Inc. ceased production after a 45 year history as founded by the late, original Brothers Larry and Grainger. The immediate family could not continue the business; so, in March of 2005, all rights and assets required to produce the original products were purchased and moved from Los Osos, CA to Taylor, TX by Brett Industries, Inc. To sustain the Legacy of the original founders, the parent corporation will continue to operate under the Brand name of "Williams Brothers Model Products". The return of of products to production is targeted to begin at the end of June 2005 with shipments starting in July. The tradition of continuing to create new, niche products for the scale hobbyist needs will continue in the future.

I, too, am a modeler who was deeply impacted by the news that Williams Brothers, Inc was closing- so impacted that I gave up a 12+ year career as a senior manufacturing engineer in a larger semi-equipment company to step up to the plate, jump in , and save it- while also keeping it in the good old USA.
The new factory in Taylor, TX will be mechanically functional and ready to produce sometime in the week of June 20th. There is still some work to do on the web site, and the bookkeeping software. The new website will be at www.williamsbrothersmodelproducts.com, so be sure to bookmark it for the future when it comes up. (hopefully soon!) Email and Phone will be furnished to the public sometime in July as we need to focus on OEM's and Distributor's initially to get reconnected.

I thank you all for your patience in this endeavor. You should see products back at your favorite dealers again shortly!
Please spread the word!
