Mathis Welding and Machine Company of Lake City, Florida was established in
1928 and began manufacturing Fireline Plows and forestry equipment. The first
ever Fireline Plow was completed in 1932. The sixth plow was built in 1933 and
later donated to the Smithsonian Institute by St. Regis Paper Co. and Mathis Plow
Co. in 1975. The Mathis Welding and Machine Company was incorporated as
