The history of Browder’s Towing & Service Center dates back to 1975.  Jerry Browder, proud owner, worked as a mechanic for a local repair operation in the early 70’s called Nunnally Auto Repair & Sales located in Petersburg, VA.  Jerry always encompassed the entrepreneurial spirit and had all the tools to venture out on his own.  After saving up hard earned capital, Jerry finally seized his opportunity by opening his own repair operation in 1975. The operation was small scale and operated out his residence.  Little did he know what the future would hold and his vision has resulted in 43 years of a thriving business.

The Browder crew takes pride in their success.

On Thursday, April 19th  2018, The Browder family hosted a Groundbreaking Ceremony to celebrate their new state-of-the-art repair facility. Having worked with the Browder Family for years, we were invited to this momentous occasion. To no surprise, the ceremony was well executed and the display of camaraderie was overwhelming. Friends and family across the community showed up to support, along with members of the Dinwiddie County Board. The ceremony was unique in such a way that everyone in attendance left with a sense of accomplishment and shared the success of the Browder Family. If you know the Browder’s, then you would understand that this is exactly how they wanted everyone to feel.  Their roots run deep and their morals are of high quality.
