Working Show Truck Of The Month – Working Show Truck Of The Month – Angel Aldrich
The towing industry in the United States is a key factor in keeping the highways safe for everyone. The vast network of towing professionals spans the entire country and they are always ready to help truckers and motorists alike who may be stranded or had the unfortunate luck of being involved in an accident. The Northeast is one region that has a large concentration of towing companies and they all take a great deal of pride in their professional service as well as the equipment.
During a recent visit to the annual NH Towing Association's Tow Show, Movin' Out was "hooked" by Aldrich Towing's impressive 2009 Peterbilt 389 that's equipped with a 2013 NRC 40/50 CSR 50 ton rotator wrecker body. Owner Angel Aldrich runs some of the finest looking wreckers in the Northeast and this Peterbilt, which he just finished building, is the pride & joy of the Aldrich fleet.
Angel owns Aldrich Auto Body & Repair Inc. based in Fitchburg, MA and their 30+ years of body repair and painting has earned them the "Best of the Best" shop award in the Fitchburg area. Aldrich Towing operates hand in hand with the repair & paint shop and they offer 24-hour towing & recovery, lowbed transport & Landoll services, rotator/crane service, and light HAZMAT cleanups. Aldrich serves the Worcester/Middlesex/Norfolk County area.
They also feature a full service facility for all types heavy equipment repair and big truck collision work. Angel's 14,000 square foot facility features state-of-the-art equipment with a digital measuring system for frame straightening.
They are an official PPG Paints location that uses only environmentally safe waterborne PPG products and offers a lifetime warranty on all of the paintwork.
Angel can handle any towing job with his 2009 polished Pete wrecker that's powered by a 600 HP Cummins engine, which is paired with an 18-speed transmission and a set of 46 rears. The truck itself is actually over four years old and has over 260,000 miles on it but the addition of the new rotator body has given it a new look. Custom features include a square bumper up front, a drop visor, extra roof lights with the removal of the air horns, and an array of LED lights on both the cab and wrecker body. When the sun hits the truck just right it shows of the brilliant purple that fades effortlessly into the truck's main color of black. Let's just say that Aldrich knows how to lay down a custom paint job! Custom orange & purple company logos can be found on the rotator body, which also features a number of polished panels, a custom light bar, and built-in control boxes. This is one wrecker that stands out thanks to its incredible paint and Angel's less-is-more customizing approach!
Aldrich Auto Body & Repair Inc. and Aldrich Towing are definitely the only choice for all of your repair, recovery, and towing needs. Let Aldrich tow your vehicle in style then let their shop professionals put your car, truck, or piece of heavy equipment back in action.
Movin' Out would like to salute Angel Aldrich for his efforts and we know our readers will be "hooked" just like we were on his outstanding 2009 Peterbilt wrecker, our July Working Show Truck of the Month.
