Serving the Rockies

0 f087cBy George Nitti

At the foothills of the Rocky Mountains sits beautiful Ogden, Utah, where Stauffer's Towing operates one of several locations. The family company started over 61 years ago as a service station and evolved into light-, medium- and heavy-duty towing and environmental cleanup.

With a logo of the Rockies emblazoned on the side of its trucks with a road that snakes in the formation of an interstate, Stauffer's defines itself as serving a location characterized by mountains, desert and busy interstate highways connecting in all directions.

"This area is a hub," said Tory Stauffer, who runs the enterprise along with his two brothers Jesse and Cody and their father, Curtiss. "We service Interstates 15, 80, 84 and 215, in addition to Highway 6. We even have two locations in Wyoming."

Their all-white 2014 Kenworth with a Jerr-Dan 25-ton wrecker gets a lot of action.

"With our Allison transmisson, we can pick up a concrete mixer on steep grades and our chassis is heavy duty," Tory said.

They are especially busy in the summer when the heat of the desert leaves trucks and other vehicles stranded.

"Our business is very seasonal and goes through spurts," said Tory. "Winter and summer months are good because of the snow, cold and heat; but then it slows down in spring and fall when the weather isn't so extreme."

While Tory runs the office, manages the office crew and handles the finances, he said his father is very hands on, enjoying taking the first call of the day while the other brothers run the other offices.

As for this all-white truck, everyone knows that white is easier to keep clean and easier to touch up when scratched. And of course, when riding under that hot desert sun, a great color choice for any wrecker.
