Our History

Paddack’s began as a family-owned and operated business back in 1975. Founded by Norman and Vicki Paddack, the company found success in the transport of heavy-duty trucks and cranes and towing medium to heavy-duty sized vehicles.

Norman was widely known throughout the community for his racing skills, and you’d often find him behind the wheel of one of his Paddack’s Mini Brute gassers. He was also known as one of the best chassis builders in the Midwest.

Eventually, Jeff Ripley bought the company, and the business soared to new heights. Today, Paddack’s remains a trusted name in the heavy-duty transport and wrecker industry.
