Everett Johnson returned from World War II in 1946, he decided to put his mechanical skills to good use and opened J H Motors with Les Hauser. Within a couple of years Everett purchased Les out. Will - the oldest son, joined the business full time in the 60's, he has a knack to fix pretty much anything and has amazing welding skills - things that are valuable to us as J H Motors. Several years later a Bob (3rd son) joined the family business. Betty - Everett's wife - ran the office. During this time we had a full service diesel repair shop. Along with handling the day to day things at the shop Everett, Will & Bob ran the semi wreckers offering semi towing in the "local" area. They were often travelling the vast state of Montana, as well as North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, Utah, Washington, Nevada, California, Oregon and even to Arizona - in fact we have traveled in almost all of the lower 48 states! Deciding to expand Will began a great challenge. Will starting getting the parts& pieces for "His" truck - #5. The first of it's kind, a boom that can extend as well as pick off either side or rear - this type is now know as a "rotator." It took 5 years to build & became our power work horse. Will's daughter Kris joined in 1988, to do the office work. Kris often brought her kids to work - giving Cody the exposure to towing at a young age. Wanting to continue the family tradition Cody joined the family business in March 2019, becoming a 4th generation tower. At this time we also added a new - to us- heavy duty wrecker. In August 2020 we added another heavy tow truck to the family. In September 2021 we added another heavy duty operator - Tim.
