Our History

Ten-West Towing started back in the 1960’s by Jim Cady. Jim has been building, fixing, painting, customizing, driving and towing big rigs since the early 1960’s. In 1963 he opened Cady’s Customs in Bakersfield, specializing in body and paint. Later, it became Cady’s Truck Repair, as Jim expanded his scope of operation. For the sake of convenience, he bought a wrecker for the sole purpose of transporting his customer’s trucks to the shop. Not long after that, C & J Towing was formed as a separate company.

In 1980, Jim hired a female driver. Robyn had not been driving for long, but she adapted quickly to operating a wrecker. The following year, she “married the boss” and the year after that, James was born. James has always been a big boy. He was born a month early and still weighed in at eight pounds and measured twenty-one inches long. The doctors told Robyn that if he had went full term he would have weighed about twelve pounds and been twenty-four inches long! Needless to say, Robyn was glad he came early. In 1985, the company incorporated and became Ten-West Towing.
