AW Direct | Helping You Help Them

Doors open
Finding a single source for towing and recovery equipment was nearly impossible in 1979, until brothers Pat and Rick Thibadeau started Accessory Wholesalers.

Foundation
The Thibadeaus built their Wolcott, Conn., business around three principles:

  • • Hard work
  • • Spirited commitment to service
  • • Sourcing the right products

Little did they know their idea would one day solidify them as a leader in the towing-equipment industry.

Steady growth
As Accessory Wholesalers’ way of doing business caught on, the company grew. And it grew fastest around the direct-marketing operation. So they simplified the name to “AW Direct.”
