In 1991 Mark decided that he wanted to make a go of Mechanics Plus full time, so he quit his job driving for a local concrete plant, found the location at 4280 Chestnut Street in Emmaus, and dedicated all his time and energy building up what is today Mechanics Plus Towing and Transport Inc. Setting his goals in motion, he wanted to tow and repair accident cars as well as haul equipment, sheds, handle customer repairs and vehicle inspections, steel fabrication and plow. Basically, he likes to do it all. This brought the addition of more mechanics, tow truck drivers and office personnel. Today, there are over 40 employees, 60 vehicles, 13 trailers, and 12 pieces of support equipment. These numbers all change on a monthly basis as the needs grow. In August 2001, Mechanics Plus opened a satellite towing office in Quakertown, PA to meet the growing demands of the towing industry. In 2014, a third location was established in Bethlehem, PA. The Emmaus location is the headquarters, and houses the administrative side of the business. In 2004, Mechanics Plus was one of the first towing companies in the Lehigh Valley to use a 911 style dispatch system and one of the first to implement GPS equipment. Today, that system has been upgraded to accommodate the growing fleet and now has been integrated with a new GPS technology that monitors not only the location of the vehicles in the fleet, but also monitors the vehicle itself for good running operation. Utilizing a gyroscope and accelerometer technology, the fleet is also monitored for efficient driving practices which in turn helps the company to train our drivers in safe and efficient vehicle operation.
