The roots of Emerald Transportation Inc. can be tracked back to the mid century - before computers, GPS navigation, and tow trucks with CD players. President and Founder James J. Jennings began his career in towing and recovery while servicing the United States Air Force as the Chief Line Mechanic for the B-29 Bomber fleet. After retiring from the Air Force, Mr. Jennings opened a Shell Service Station in a little known town called - Boca Raton. Soon after, Mr. Jennings purchased his first tow truck, and formed Jennings Towing and Recovery Service - known today as Emerald Transportation Inc. In the 1970s, Mr. Jennings' son, Jim, joined the company. Over the past 40 plus years these two have not only expanded the company's reach, expertise and size - but also it's reputation in the towing industry.
Today Emerald Transportation is the standard in South Florida for vehicle recovery.. and heavy duty towing. With a fleet of over 40 strong - Emerald is also one of the largest towing companies in the state of Florida. Coupled with their size and 50 years experience - Emerald Towing is known for it's longevity as well as it's cutting edge approach to towing. Jim is not only a regular at conferences such as TRAA Legislative & Leadership Conference, but also has assisted in the adoption and formation of towing standards in South Florida. He is looked to by the Palm Beach County Towing Advisory Group for guidance in advancing towing standards across the industry. These traits, coupled with their size and almost 50 years experience - have garnered such high level partnerships with organizations such as the City of Pompano Beach.
