“I am now the proud owner of 4 new Boot dryers!!! An interesting point… yesterday, I was speaking to three underground miners and unsolicited, they spoke highly of the Williams Direct Dryers Model W30 that we currently have in operation. They claimed they had to go in a wet area to reset some pumps where the water was up to their waist and obviously their boots were absolutely soaking wet and full of water. On leaving at the end of shift, they poured the water from their boots and sat them on the dryer (no heater, ambient air only at say 5 degrees C) and went home until their next shift, which was approximately 12 hours later. On arriving for their shift the next day, they were delighted that their boots were dry and were then keen to let me know how good it worked.
Just thought you may like this story.
This sort of performance will allow us to restrict the number of boots being issued to an employee to no more than 2, as he will be able to wear one and dry one rather than just throw away the wet ones. At up to $360 a time you can see that I will be able to pay for these dryers in under a year.”

“We went full force with the dryer (a Williams Direct Dryers model WS5) the other day after an incident and my staff is just absolutely amazed at the ease, the operation and the speed of your unit. I can't thank you enough. Again, we love the unit. Enjoy your day!”

“The Model RM8 that we purchased is of the finest quality and workmanship that I have seen in a long time. Desmond Mayne was very helpful and courteous in answering any and all questions we had regarding this product. The unit is very "User Friendly" and effective in mask drying. Keep up the good work. ”
Lt. Scott A. Clifford , East Putnam Fire Dpt, CT
“This unit is doing a fantastic drying job. The gear feels like it was naturally dried which leaves it soft and plyable. After our washing and drying you would think the gear was new right out of the bag.”
Chief Ken Freiburger, Walkerton Fire Dpt, ON
“Our second dryer is working as well as the first and our gear is washed more often because of the quickness of the drying process. Looking to purchase our 3rd dryer.
Chief Dan Contini, Palmer Emergency Service, AK
“I have used the gear dryer on several occasions for gear that is just "wet" to stuff that is really soaked. The best results come when the liner and shell are separated, of course; otherwise it takes about 4-6 hours for really soaked gear and less for "wet". Boots and gloves take a lot less. We are really happy with the dryer and it gets used frequently by all the crews. The mobility with the caster wheels is also appreciated with the tight quarters we have here.”

“We are very happy with our dryer. The dryer is working great!!”
