To Our Customers… Ring Power News Cover

In these difficult economic times, not many companies are opening new facilities. However, to better serve our customers, Ring Power embarked on a long-term facility improvement plan in 2005, which has benefited every service area in our Florida sales territory.

The expansion and renovation projects continue to improve our ability to meet the needs of Ring Power customers and include the following:

New Construction
- 35,000-sq. ft. facility in Sarasota
- 27,237-sq. ft. facility in North Jacksonville
- 29,787-sq. ft. facility in Midway, near Tallahassee
-
42,449-sq. ft. facility in Pompano Beach for Ring Power Crane and Ring Power Lift Trucks

Renovations & Expansions
- Tampa administrative offices and service bays
- 7,700-sq. ft. crane service facility expansion in Union City, Ga.
- Expansion of the heavy equipment service shop and renovation of the administrative facilities in Orlando and Palm Bay
-
The newest construction project, completed this summer, is the new facility located in Lakeland, which replaced the aging building in nearby Mulberry (see article on page 7 for details).

Our investment in facility improvements is a testament to Ring Power’s long-term commitment to providing Ring Power customers the best product, parts and service and maintaining Ring Power’s standing as an industry leader well into the future.

Sincerely,

Randal R. Ringhaver

Ring Power Employees Spread Holiday Spirit to American Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan

December 2, 2009 at 10:42 AMRing Power

St. Augustine, FL; December 1, 2009 – For the eighth consecutive year, employees of Ring Power Corporation, north and central Florida's Caterpillar dealer, joined forces to bring holiday cheer to U.S. troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. This year, "Christmas for the Troops" netted 154 individual military APO/FPO flat rate boxes containing snacks, candies, toiletries, games, CDs, books, magazines and gun oil. According to Senior Accounting Clerk Dorothy Case, who spearheads the annual drive, "For those who are serving in harm’s way, those items are a real treat."

On November 19, the packages shipped out of the St. Augustine USPS branch to four military units with a special connection to the Ring Power "family:"

Sgt. Philip Wessels, son of VP/Entertainment Services Division GM Phil Wessels, received 15 care packages to share with his U.S. Army Special Forces unit deployed in Iraq.

Marine Cpl. Kory Diley, son of Cat Rental Store Executive Secretary Nikki McDaniel, received 48 care packages for his Special Operations unit in Afghanistan.

Sgt. Bobby Hendrix, brother of Soyna White, who works in the Credit Department, received 76 care packages for his Army National Guard unit, ARSIC-East Echo Company, serving in Afghanistan.

Staff Sgt. Sean Wright, son of Cat Rental Store Administrative Assistant Sheryl Hand and Warranty Department Administrator Wendel Hand, received 15 care packages for his Army Special Forces unit, also deployed in Afghanistan.

Ring Power Corporation, the Cat dealer for north and central Florida, is proud to support its employees’ loved ones, who so bravely serve our country.

Construction of the new Ring Power facility in Lakeland was completed right on schedule, consolidating Lakeland’s forklift operations and Mulberry’s heavy construction equipment and Cat Rental Store operations on an expansive 40-acre campus. Located less than two miles from exit 10 off Polk Parkway, the new facility at 3425 Reynolds Road offers 76,000 square feet of office, warehouse and service space. The service shops include seven heavy equipment service bays, six Cat Rental Store service bays, two forklift service bays and two bays for on-highway truck repair. 

"Building this new facility is a clear demonstration of Ring Power’s confidence in our customers’ futures as well as our own," said VP Lakeland Regional Sales Manager Mark Wineinger. "Our new location will enable us to penetrate new markets throughout Polk County, while we continue to expand and improve upon our services on behalf of our existing customers in the mining industry."

Ring Power sales representatives, parts associates and service technicians welcome customers to their new location, and ask that you please make note of the new Polk County phone number and address, as the former locations in Mulberry and Lakeland are now closed:
