MCALLEN, Texas–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–July 25, 2003–Aggreko, the market leader in power, temperature control and oil-free air equipment rentals, recently opened a new location in McAllen, Texas. The new depot will service the entire Rio Grande Valley and the Maquila territory in Mexico. Growth in the local market and an increasing interest by local customers prompted the need for a permanent, full-service Aggreko depot. Now, McAllen, and the surrounding areas, will receive local service with the benefits and resources of a global company.

“We have been doing business in the Valley for many years and recently started doing more business in the Maquiladoras. Last year, we did several projects involving all three product lines. The response from our customers was so encouraging that we decided to open a local facility to improve our response time and become a permanent fixture in a growing market. McAllen is now the sixth location we have in the state of Texas,” said Terry Dressel, vice president, business development. “And, more importantly, this location gives us the ability to provide a better service to our customers in Mexico.”

The area offers Aggreko a range of markets, including manufacturing, warehousing, entertainment and construction. Local sales teams have already begun to spread the word that Aggreko is ready and able to respond to any requirements for temporary utility services.

Aggreko’s 24-hour emergency service and creative applications offer a different level of service than the standard general rental company. With an impeccable track record including success at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, recent disaster relief efforts, large power requirements for utility jobs, and with an ever-expanding product line, Aggreko has consistently responded to meet its customer’s critical utility needs.
