- New Services Enhancement Program Designed to Meet the Changing Needs of Customers in Gas Compression Applications
- Enerflex Ltd. is Announced as the First Packager Participant in the Program
- Program Seeks to Give End Users in Gas Compression Applications Greater Access to Genuine Waukesha Parts and Expert Service Technicians
WAUKESHA, WIS.—January 5, 2015—GE’s Distributed Power business (NYSE: GE) has launched the new Gas Compression Power Packager program, designed to provide customers in gas compression applications with enhanced access to genuine Waukesha parts and skilled service technicians.
The program increases the opportunity for end users to access expert Waukesha gas engine technicians in growing oil and gas spaces around the world through increased factory training to participating packaging companies. End users in these spaces also can benefit from lower engine life cycle costs through increased access to trusted, genuine Waukesha parts. Finally, at the Platinum level, the program permits qualified gas compression packagers to purchase genuine Waukesha parts and services directly from GE.
“With developments in the oil and gas sector driving demand for more genuine Waukesha products and customers requiring increased access to expert field technicians in their growing—and often very remote operations—we listened to our customers’ needs to create more service density and genuine product access by establishing our new Gas Compression Power Packager Program,” said Darryl Wilson, chief commercial officer for GE’s Distributed Power.
The global gas compression packaging company Enerflex Ltd. (TSX: EFX), headquartered in Calgary, has signed on to become the first participant in the Gas Compression Power Packager Program. Enerflex has transitioned its Waukesha distributor relationship in four regions (Canada, the Northern United States, Australia and Indonesia) to the new Power Packager Program. Enerflex will continue to serve as the authorized distributor and service provider for GE’s Jenbacher gas engines in Canada, under its Gas Drive Global brand.
“Enerflex has been a long-standing Waukesha distributor for over 45 years. Since GE’s acquisition of Waukesha gas engines in 2011, Enerflex has worked closely with GE to evolve our relationship in the gas compression business,” said J. Blair Goertzen, Enerflex’s president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased that we have reached an agreement to enter into GE’s global Gas Compression Power Packager Program. Enerflex’s worldwide customers will continue to experience first-class products, services and support through our participation in this program.”
Mr. Wilson noted, “The more access to service we can offer end users, by working closely with expert packaging companies like Enerflex, the more cost-effective our customers’ projects can be.”
