Over the years August has been Sponsor Recognition Month. During this month we recognize our Valued Sponsors for their support. But it does not end there, the products and service combined with a wealth of knowledge that cannot be found any one place on a daily basis.  Tow411 and the members are honored by their participation.

 We will be recognizing our Sponsors throughout the month. So, since we have several to recognize here. Let's get this started.

Next Up - Reed and Hoppes - http://www.reedandhoppes.com/

Reed & Hoppes was established in 1947 in Portland, Michigan by Robert and Florence Hoppes.

Bob worked in a machine shop for a while, but his burning desire to be his own boss caused him to buy a wrecker in 1947 and start towing in downtown Portland. Five years later, he and his wife bought some farm land five miles out of town and they started building what is now an impressive operation by any measure. All they had in the beginning was a chicken coop.

Today, a modern, well-equipped and roomy automotive shop houses the entire fleet and serves as an assembly plant and paint shop. Bob and his wife, Florence, were married almost 50 years and together they raised ten children, six of whom are actively involved in the business she helped build. To quote Mr. Hoppes, "What we have become as a business and family is due in part to Florence's influence and leadership." This is truly a family built and run company with 24 dedicated and much appreciated drivers, and 25 hard-working trucks.

Feel free to chime in at anytime with a sponsor endorsement as well as a list of sponsors you have dealt with over the past year.

12 Endorsements could earn your favorite Sponsor an ENV Status "Endorsed Network Vendor" is a title that others may strive to achieve.

Note: I will be drawing at least one sponsor name each day to recognize. Just because a sponsor has not made the list yet, does not mean you cannot endorse your favorites. You never know your reply could win you a Tow411 T-Shirt or a Texas Roadhouse Gift Card (each has a $25 value, cash cannot be substituted for prizes).
