Built on a Strong Reputation
In 2004, Donnie Plunk, Mike Joyner, and Caley Joyner formed a partnership when they saw a need in northeast Louisiana for an experienced, knowledgeable towing and recovery company. Their first purchase was an existing company in Rayville, Louisiana, which became Paul’s Towing and Recovery, Inc.
They immediately began adding the larger equipment to the fleet to include two large wreckers. Once this was done, they began updating all of the small wreckers and rollbacks. Shortly into the partnership, they realized that they had outgrown their existing location. To better serve their growing customer base, they decided to relocate the main operations center to West Monroe, Louisiana. At that same time, they became Donnie Plunk’s Towing and Recovery, Inc. The name change was to eliminate any confusion as to who would be responding to the customers’ needs.
