East Coast's News & Press


Jerr-Dan Corporation (Hagerstown, Maryland) recently sold its first rotator in the state of California to Frank Scotto Towing in Torrance, California. The sale of this 50/60 Ton, Tandem Steer JFB Rotator reinforces Jerr-Dan’s steady west coast expansion strategy.

“We are honored that Frank Scotto Towing and the Van Lingen Group would be the first to secure a Jerr-Dan rotator in California,” said Jeff Irr, senior director of marketing and sales, Jerr-Dan.  “As we expand our presence and offerings on the West Coast, we continue to partner with our Jerr-Dan distributors to offer towers the solutions they need.”

Frank Scotto Towing is part of the Van Lingen Group of companies.  As a third-generation family-owned and operated business, Van Lingen is southern Los Angeles’ most trusted name in towing and recovery. With four locations, Van Lingen is a leader in swift, efficient, one-call-and-done towing service for businesses and municipalities alike.

“We find the Jerr-Dan to be the best rotator in the market,” said Sean Van Lingen, vice president, Van Lingen Group, the parent company of Frank Scotto Towing.  “Between the ease of use, increased storage solutions, top of the line outrigger stability and the most reach in the industry, it was an easy decision for us to purchase this Jerr-Dan Rotator. Jerr-Dan’s products continue to exceed industry standards and that was very important to us since California has complex requirements for the towing industry.”

Engineered to undertake the toughest challenges with available configurations to meet California’s regulations, Jerr-Dan’s innovative product line provides competitive advantage while affording long-term added-value.  The Jerr-Dan 50/60 Ton JFB Rotator has a combination of heavy-duty capabilities, superior stabilizing technology, 360-degree rotation, and impressive power and pulling capacity. The Jerr-Dan Fire Body (JFB) Series has an extra-rugged, non-corrosive exterior made of weather-tight, impact-resistant polypropylene—making it more durable while lowering long-term cost of ownership. It features roll-up aluminum doors for swifter access to equipment, strategically placed LED lighting for improved visibility and specialty storage solutions to ensure every tool has its place.

To make this deal happen, Frank Scotto Towing contacted its Jerr-Dan distributor, Hydraulic Shop Inc. in Bloomington, California, which assisted them with the purchase. Founded in 2007, Hydraulic Shop is an authorized Jerr-Dan distributor for light, medium, and heavy-duty rollbacks and wreckers. With more than 10 years of industry experience, Hydraulic Shop’s professional and experienced staff helped Frank Scotto Towing acquire a rotator that is engineered and designed to their exact specifications with long-term ownership and safety in mind.

“When Frank Scotto Towing told us they wanted to purchase a rotator, we immediately stepped in and assisted them in determining the one that would fit their business needs,” said Josh Lovelace, sales & service manager, Hydraulic Shop Inc. “We were pleased and grateful to Jerr-Dan team, from sales to engineering staff, who assisted us with every detail.  Like Jerr-Dan, we are in the business of fostering relationships with our customers to deliver products that suits their business needs.”
