HOW IT STARTED
In 1946 Elmer Siewert established a business with a garage and a tow truck with a hand crank winch and boom. From then on Siewert’s has been coming to the rescue of all types of stranded motorists. Elmer’s son, Virgil, eventually bought the business and expanded the garage making room for bigger trucks and more space to work on vehicles. In recent years, Virgil’s two sons, Todd and Karl, have purchased the business and made expansions that include the Cannon Falls and Prescott, WI terminals. They have also implemented emergency roadside services for the AAA motor club in Newport, St. Paul Park, Cottage Grove and Hastings, MN. Also, Todd’s son Kyle has entered into the family business making the fourth generation Siewert’s tow truck operator.
