CharDen Towing was started in Drayton Valley AB in the mid to late 1990s by Charlotte and Dennis Siwiski, the company name being a blend of the owners’ names.
Upon their retirement sometime around 2010 they sold CharDen Towing to Bob Sauder, who in turn upon his retirement onsold the venture in early 2014 to Shane “Tiny” Williams after Bob’s kids chose to pursue other endeavours external to the family business.
Shane Por began his employment with CharDen Towing in October 2014, bringing with him a decade of trucking experience in the oil field as well as a further year’s dedicated towing knowledge from his previous employ at Ted’s Towing (now disbanded). Around two and a half years into his tenure with CharDen, during a politely heated verbal exchange with Tiny, Shane emitted the fateful words “If I ran this place then…..”
Shane purchased CharDen Towing as of October 1st 2016 and rebranded to CharDen 2016 with the view to expand services offered by the company.
