Eagle Towing and Equipment started in 1979 as a family business. Back then, the towing industry distributing company housed only one truck and one gas station.
In 1985 the company became the only Ontario dealer for NRC Industries selling Canadian-made wreckers and car carriers. And eventually, the shop grew into a 15,000 sq. ft. facility housing a parts department, sales team and fabrication shop, located in Cambridge, Ontario.
“With more 14 years of earned experience, we proudly understand the towing industry from bumper to bumper,” said Jack Poladian, operations manager at Eagle Towing. “Our goal is to provide tow truck operators with honest service and quality products. We strive to provide a unique customer relationship experience to the hard-working tow truck operators within the industry.”
Poladian said Eagle’s Towing has been so successful thanks to true dedication by the owners Simon and Victor treat the business as a lifeline, always thinking about their next move and how to support their customers. In 2020, the company was among the essential businesses allowed to remain open amid COVID-19 lockdowns.
“We are fortunate to have a great team behind us. We were proactive with all our COVID-19 regulations. We implemented all the state practices and PPE right away. And we made sure to keep our doors open for the guys on the highway, risking their lives to the job,” said Poladian. Just a few weeks back, Poladian said they passed a COVID inspection with flying colours.
Going into 2021, Eagle Towing has a lot in store. Lots of changes with NRC industries has brought a lot of changes to the equipment and model that NRC offers.
In 2021, Eagle Towing will sell one of the largest rotators in North America, an upgraded version it calls a CSR85, and a new loader system that NRC came up with. Customers can also expect new products, changes in flatbeds and a lot of galvanized equipment— because according to Poladian, paint will slowly start to be phased out.
Just last year, the company opened a brand new showroom up front, and now has a whole retail “fun section,” where they offer all of their stress changed binders and recovery equipment. The showroom is open for all customers to walk in and browse. All the new attachments and receivers for the heavy and flatbed towing are all on the shop floor.
