Clifford Airth became active in the Automotive Industry early in 1946 and sold his first tow truck that same year. Later, he was appointed by the Ernest Holmes Company as their Representative for Western Canada, which was subsequently expanded to also include the States of Hawaii and Alaska. In addition to serving as the Ernest Holmes Representative, Clifford and Alice Airth owned and operated an automotive equipment distribution center serving Western Canada from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Coast.
Clifford Airth retired December 31, 1979, but has continued to follow and promote the development of the towing and recovery industry throughout Western Canada, Hawaii and Alaska. In fact, much of the material used in the Towing and Recovery World History Book for these areas was supplied by Clifford Airth who is an industry leader, a man of strength and vision who has rightfully earned the respect of the entire Towing and Recovery Industry.
