Mario's Towing Ltd. relocated operations 18 years ago from Prince Rupert, BC to Kelowna, BC and has since expanded to West Kelowna, Merritt, Hope and now Princeton. A family owned company, Mario started in this business in 1985 with one truck. Today, they have a fleet of 60+ trucks and 66 employees across all operations, and have fostered a well-earned, exemplary reputation in the municipalities in which they operate. The company will use additional SIDIT funds to expand to Princeton which is meant to augment existing operations in Hope and Merritt. The property is ideally suited to towing operations with an existing building, auto hoists, apartment for an onsite manager and a large bare land component for vehicle storage. SIDIT funds will support sustainable business development and trades jobs in Hope, Merritt, Princeton and Kelowna.
"The continued growth of Mario's Towing Ltd. has led to the creation of permanent full time jobs throughout the Southern Interior.," states Grace McGregor, SIDIT Chair. "We are proud to support a company that will have long lasting and measureable benefits to the Southern Interior."
Mario Moretto, President, Mario's Towing Ltd. says, "We are grateful to SIDIT for their confidence in the growth of our family business in the Southern Interior."
