1914

Originally named "G. A. Ashton Co.", We served the surrounding area with selling and refilling Pyrene fire extinguishers. Pictured below is an original pyrene extinguisher that we still have in the shop. On the right is an advertisement placed in the local paper for our serivces.

1916

in 1916 G.A. Ashton placed this full page illustrated ad in the local Minneapolis Star Tribune. It illustrated a handful of anecdotes where the pyrene extinguisher is essential to survival. These are not only applicable to the 1910s, but to today as well!

1930s

In the mid-1930s, Mr. Weber and Paul Troseth purchased the company and changed the name to what we know today as Weber & Troseth Inc.

1939

Raymond V. Wyland worked at G.A. Ashton as their book keeper. When the company was sold in the mid-1930s, he was laid off because his services were no longer needed. 

After a short period of Weber & Troseth Inc.'s purchase and re-naming, Weber left the business to sell cars in Iowa. Paul Troseth died a few years later and Paul's wife, Elsie Troseth put the business up for sale.

 

Raymond negotiated with Elsie to purchase the business. At the time the company sold auto parts, flexible tubing, Gas cans and fire extinguishers.

In the image to the right is Raymond with his wife Annie and their children.

1950s

We sold Pyrene fire extinguishers until the 1950's until they were outlawed.

At which time they picked up General Fire Extinguishers as the brand they represented.

1984

Raymond V. Wyland passed away in 1984 when he was 85 years of age and still working part time for Weber & Troseth.

Ownership soon passed on to his son Roger who is the current owner of Weber and Troseth.

2000s

Weber & Troseth sold General Fire Extinguishers until the early 2000's when General went out of business. At which time we became a dealer for Amerex Fire Extinguishers

2021

Roger Wyland is the current owner and his son John helps run the company. Over the past 100 plus years, we have become a staple to the Saint Paul community and we are always excited to work with you!
