Something to tow about

June 6, 2012

Hino Trucks teamed up with Miller Industries to provide one lucky tow operator with the chance to win a “fully loaded” 2012 Hino 258ALP truck mounted with a Century 12 Series LCG carrier. The giveaway is part of an effort that benefits The Professional Wreckers of Florida (PWOF) Education and Legislation Programs.

This year’s winner was Joe Spina, owner of Sarasota-based Direct Towing. Spina, who already has two Hino 258 model trucks in his fleet, commented, “I still can’t believe I won! We have been in business for eight years and this will be a perfect addition to our fleet.”

“This is a way for Hino to give back to the independent wrecker operators and to help promote education and safety,” said Glenn Ellis, Hino’s vice president of marketing & dealer operations for Hino Trucks. “PWOF looks for new ways to advance the towing industry, and Hino Trucks is proud to partner with Miller Industries to support this endeavor.”
