“Among the 1,300 pieces of new equipment, we will be supplying 162 generators into A-Plant’s rapidly expanding Mather+Stuart Power Solutions division. Customers tell us that their number one priority is reliability closely followed by availability and quality, so it is vital that we continue to meet these key requirements.”
