About Us

We were incorporated in 1958 as T&W Contractors, Inc. by partners Claude Tozier II and Dr. Lawrence Willett (T & W). Initially operating as a trucking and an earthing company, Claude bought Willett’s share of the business not long after it was formed.

Claude operated a fleet of 11 trucks until the late 1960s when he bought land on Elm Street in Newport and built a new garage. Originally, the garage was used to maintain company trucks. Over time, the garage became the "go to" place for truck repairs.

In 1971, the truck fleet was gone and since then, the garage has been servicing the public. After Claude died in 1990, the garage was operated by his sons, Kevin and Michael. By 2000, they had grown the business from two to seven bays and had expanded their repair work to include all vehicles, from cars to heavy trucks. They also built a modern fleet of seven tow trucks from small wreckers and ramp trucks to two heavy-duty wreckers. Our specialties now include everything from flat tire replacements to the recovery of wrecked and rolled tractor trailers.

In 2010, Kevin passed suddenly from cancer. Through the grief of his loss, the company has continued to grow. Thanks in large part to a dedicated staff, today Michael and his mother Carol carry on a tradition of honest hard work.

T&W Garage Inc. is committed to providing a good work environment for their valued employees, and is dedicated to providing the best possible automotive service in Newport, ME and Pittsfield, ME.
