NAMED GSTA’S TOWMEN OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Nick Testa of Nick’s Towing Service in Rutherford NJ who has been named the Garden State Towing Association’s 2013 Towmen of the Year.
Towmen of the year, given annually, is awarded to a GSTA member or employee of a GSTA member company based on heroism, community service, extreme recovery, or industry accomplishments that benefit the towing industry.
A steadfast loyal member and friend of the GSTA for many years, Nick has gone to great lengths to do what he can for the betterment of the towing industry through the association. Nick worked with members of the GSTA board to set up and attend a meeting with Senator Paul Sarlo to discuss the Predatory Towing Act. This meeting was instrumental in helping to overturn the Act. It was a major feat for the GSTA and a benefit to every tower in the State. He also helped the GSTA by setting up and attending a meeting with GSTA board members and Assemblyman Neil Cohen who served as Chair of the Financial Institution and Insurance Committee.
Nick built his business from the ground up and grew it to the operation it is today with over 35 employees and trucks. He holds himself and his employees to a very high standard. His facility and trucks are well maintained, his drivers are uniformed and trained because he believes to his core that towers do not get respect as an industry and he leads the way to be a professional.
The Garden State Towing Association is the recognized towing association in New Jersey and the only state towing association that is affiliated with the national Towing and Recovery Association of America (TRAA). GSTA represents the interests of over two hundred companies in New Jersey.
