Founded in 1946 as a machine shop servicing oilfield components through the 1960's and 1970's, Reagan Equipment developed an extensive branch network and began to set the standard for fabricating power packages in the oilfield industry. Their installations include electrical power generation, oil field pumping, gas compression, sewage treatment, wastewater disposal, marine power generation and propulsion, as well as peak shaving, cogeneration, and chiller plants, including those fueled by alternative fuels such as landfill gas and digester gas.
"For over half of the twentieth century, Reagan Equipment Co. has been putting power packages of all types to work throughout the world," said Jim Crouse, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing. "With concerns for power security and reliability, signing this agreement with Reagan will open new sales opportunities in the region," added Crouse.
"Reagan Equipment Company's highly qualified in-house team works with their customers to determine the most economical and practical way to obtain their power package," stated Lee Richards, Capstone's Director, Sales, Oil & Gas.
"As I mentioned during our most recent earnings call, we were looking for a partner in the U.S. to strengthen our oil and gas outreach. This agreement with Reagan Equipment Co. is a good opportunity for Capstone to expand the distribution of our products in the Southeastern region of the United States," said Darren Jamison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine Corporation. "For over 60 years, Reagan Equipment Co. has been the total solution provider for power packaging needs. From maintenance contracts to project management, from engineering to custom controls, Reagan is a total solution provider," added Jamison.
The President and Chief Executive Officer of Reagan Equipment Co., Tom Reagan, said, "The Reagan formula for success is to provide a quality product, back it with superior service, and create a strong branch network that can efficiently and effectively service clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Working with Capstone will be a mutually beneficial partnership as we share the same values of attention to product quality, attention to customers and their needs, and attention to the environment," added Reagan.
