Company Wrench was founded in 1999 when Brad Hutchinson began operating a truck, trailer and equipment shop and a 24-hour wrecker and recovery service in central Ohio. In 2002, the company became a dealer for Stanley, LaBounty and Beka-Max Auto-Lube Systems. The following year, the company launched a demolition rental fleet, becoming LaBounty’s largest dealer. The company added equipment lines and branched into construction as it has grown, ultimately representing more than 20 manufacturers with locations in Ohio, Florida, Indiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
