GAINESVILLE, Texas, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Molded Fiber Glass Companies (MFG) announced today that their field service organization, Wind Energy Services Company (WES), has been officially renamed MFG Energy Services. The company will continue to be based at the same location in Gainesville, TX and the relationship with the parent company remains unchanged.
The reason behind the name and graphic identity change is to provide a clearer identification in the market with MFG and define the mobile, on-site nature of the service offering. The new name also reflects a broader market scope that fits with plans for expansion into new service areas.
Initially launched as Wind Energy Services (WES) in 2007, the mission of the company was to provide on-site inspection, repair and maintenance services to wind farm operators in North America. As the industry matured, offerings were expanded to include more sophisticated diagnostics, factory repairs and refurbishment, and made-to-order replacement parts in conjunction with MFG Wind. Currently, three factories located in US wind farm hotspots offer factory repair services and blade manufacturing, providing wind farm operators with fast and economical support when and where they need it.
According to Gary Kanaby, director of sales and marketing for MFG Energy Services, "What sets us apart is MFG's deep knowledge of manufacturing blades and other components accumulated over more than 26 years. We are known for being able to handle the most difficult repair jobs - providing the best service with the deepest engineering talent. And that's why we're growing."
The company will be exhibiting along with MFG Wind at the AWEA WINDPOWER 2013 Conference in Chicago, May 5-8, booth #2533.
