  • Propak Systems Ltd. is Announced as a New Platinum Participant
  • Services Enhancement Program Designed to Meet the Changing Needs of Customers in Gas Compression Applications
  • Program Seeks to Give End Users in Gas Compression Applications Greater Access to Genuine Waukesha Parts and Expert Service Technicians 

WAUKESHA, WIS.-April 16, 2015-GE’s Distributed Power business (NYSE: GE) has expanded its new Gas Compression Power Packager program by adding Propak Systems Ltd. as a new participant at the Platinum Level. The program is 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 service technicians in growing oil and gas spaces through increased GE training to participating packaging companies. End users in these spaces can benefit from reduced engine life cycle costs through increased access to proven, genuine Waukesha parts. As a Platinum-level participant, Propak can purchase genuine Waukesha parts and services directly from GE.

“We are excited to partner with Propak as a new Platinum participant in our Gas Compression Power Packager Program,” said Darryl Wilson, chief commercial officer for GE’s Distributed Power business. “Gas compression professionals should be excited too-this means more access to genuine Waukesha services and products to keep their sites running as smoothly as possible.”

Founded in 1976, Propak maintains nearly 700 compression packages and installs on average 100,000 hp annually with 40 highly skilled package technicians.  

“This new agreement is really a big win for our Waukesha end-user customers,” said Rod McPike, president of Propak Systems. “By offering gas compression professionals increased access to original Waukesha service parts and more skilled engine technicians, we can help ensure that customer sites are run as cost-effectively as possible with trusted parts and equipment.”
