“We are honored to continue the legacy of Lee Roberts and welcome Roberts Heavy Duty Towing Inc. into the Guardian Fleet Services family,” said Scott Crockett, president of Guardian Fleet Services. “Lee’s commitment to safety, training, and customer service perfectly aligns with our values, and we look forward to building upon the strong foundation he has laid.”
