What makes a Nichols Fleet Truck

Since 1991, Nichols Fleet Equipment has been building the best service trucks in the industry. Not only do we represent the best product lines available, we make them better through meticulous installation and customization. We take the extra steps to build our trucks the way we'd want them built if they were our own, and our team prioritizes exceptional service after the sale to provide you the support you need to keep your NFE truck working hard for years to come.


In 1991, David Nichols, Sr. started Nichols Fleet Equipment in a one-room office trailer with rented shop space nearby for his first installations. Since those early days, David has been joined by his two sons, David, Jr. and Nick, and the company is rapidly growing! We're proud of our history and excited about our future. Located in Chattanooga, TN, we're thrilled to be celebrating over 30 years in business!

The History

When David Nichols Sr. started Nichols Fleet Equipment Inc. failure wasn't an option. He had many years of experience building and later selling service trucks, and when his employer closed its doors, he had to decide how to best provide for a young family. Wanting to do so in his hometown of Chattanooga, David started NFE in 1991, and he hasn't looked back since.

Best Team, Best Trucks

Putting out the best service trucks on the job requires the best team of installation technicians, and we are confident we’ve got them. Our experienced, educated technicians are passionate about what they do, take pride in their work, and see beyond the task at hand to where each truck is going.
