Leader in Power Rental Expands in Area
SARNIA, ON (May 27, 2009) – Aggreko, the global leader in rental power, temperature control and oil-free compressed air solutions, has moved its centre of operations in Sarnia to improve the service it provides to local customers. The new, bigger site, located in the main building at 396 McGregor Side Road, comprises 7500 square feet of shop and office space with a spacious compound to house equipment inventory.
“Our new location will allow storage for more rental fleet, even greater capacity for testing equipment set-ups prior to installation, as well as a more extensive accessory inventory. This will enable us to respond to our customers’ needs more quickly,” said Ed Ray, Sales Representative for Aggreko in Sarnia. “We are thrilled to be able to provide even better service and emergency response to our customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
Aggreko has been in Sarnia since December 1999, predominately serving the refining and utility industries. The company has recently expanded its operations in Canada, acquiring the highly regarded Alberta-based rental power specialist Power Plus Rentals and Sales (Power Plus) in August 2008 to support the oil and gas industries of Western Canada.
Aggreko has a long track record supporting major oil and gas, refining and utility operations all over the world, from Dubai to the UK, South America and the US. “The increased demand for services like ours in Canada combined with our experience and support resources makes the Sarnia expansion a particularly important initiative,” said George Walker, President of Aggreko North America.
Aggreko also operates service centres in Toronto, Edmonton and Fort McMurray and is an official supplier of temporary power and temperature control for The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
