Our Story

Cannons of Jax, formerly known as Cannon Welding, has been a small family business staple in the Jacksonville area since 1950. Cannon Welding was originally located on University Blvd and was owned by Earnest Cannon. Bo Phillips, Earnest’s nephew took ownership of Cannons in 1969 and moved the business to its current location on Richard Street. Bo started out with a small 24’ x 36’ steel building as his welding fabrication shop. His welding fabrication skills led him to fabricate anything from large steel buildings to custom trailer hitches. As his business grew, he discovered the value in the trailer hitch business and partnered with draw-tite a hitch distributer to stock, sell, and install trailer hitches. He expanded the size of his shop to what it is today, including seven bays for servicing and installing trailer hitches, 5th wheel and gooseneck hitches, towbars/baseplates, custom truck racks, major trailer repairs, and so much more.

In 2020, Kimberly Phillips, Bo’s Daughter and longtime office manager for Cannons took ownership of the business. Kim has been the backbone and face of the business for many years. She prides herself on maintaining her Dad’s legacy, by providing our customers with quality products, services, and excellent customer service.

Today, Cannons stocks one of the largest inventories of trailer hitches and other quality vehicle towing accessories in the state of Florida for all makes and models of vehicles. This allows us to provide same day service at a fair price. Our presence in the RV community allows to set your vehicle to your needs. We are certified 5th wheel, gooseneck, flat tow, hyraLift, weight distribution, swivel wheel, and trailer hitch installers. Our number one priority is to ensure our  customers are set up properly for a safe towing experience. We recently expanded or services to include other vehicle accessories such as tonneau covers, vehicle steps, and more.

Our custom welding and fabrication shop provides specialty custom hitches for travel and 5th wheel trailers, complex trailer repairs, custom truck/pipe racks, and so much more. George our long time fabricator and certified welder can handle anything from a small welding repair to a specialty custom gate.
