Ring Power® Celebrates 50 Years as Full-Line Caterpillar® Dealer

March 26, 2012 at 10:21 AMRing Power
This month Ring Power Corporation, in St. Augustine, Florida, celebrates 50 years as a full-line dealer of Caterpillar earthmoving, engine and material handling equipment.

Ring Power Corporation proudly announces their 50-year, golden anniversary as a Caterpillar dealership in Florida. In 1961, L.C. Ringhaver, the owner of the world’s largest shrimp boat manufacturer, Diesel Engine Sales, Inc. (DESCO), acquired the Caterpillar engine dealership rights from Jacksonville-based Gibbs Corporation. Originally established in St. Augustine, Fla., Ring Power Corp. was founded to sell and service Cat® marine engines to Northeast Florida’s thriving shrimp trawler industry. 

Following the death of Cat dealer Lobrano Machinery Company’s president and owner, Tom Lobrano, Ring Power Corporation was awarded the dealer territory in Jacksonville, Ocala and Tallahassee, Fla. for the full line of Caterpillar equipment in March of 1962. 

For the next 14 years, L.C. Ringhaver successfully developed the North Florida Caterpillar dealership, Ring Power Corporation, into a customer-focused, service-oriented establishment. Upon L.C. Ringhaver’s death in 1976, his eldest son, Lance Ringhaver, assumed leadership of the company as President and Chairman, a role he would retain until his acquisition of the Central Florida Caterpillar dealership, Rozier Machinery, 10 years later.

In 1986, Caterpillar awarded the Central Florida dealership rights to the Ringhavers. Lance Ringhaver moved to Tampa, Fla. to start a new dealership, Ringhaver Equipment Company, while Randy Ringhaver took leadership of Ring Power Corporation in Jacksonville. For nearly two decades, both Cat dealerships continued to flourish, taking on new business opportunities and products such as an expanded power systems line, rental equipment operations, forklifts, cranes, air compressors and utility equipment, all backed by parts and product support.

In 2004, Ringhaver Equipment Company and Ring Power Corporation officially merged into one consolidated company with Randy Ringhaver as Chairman and President of the new Ring Power Corporation. The combined Cat dealership territory now consists of 44 counties throughout North and Central Florida.

Ring Power Corporation, the North and Central Florida Caterpillar dealer, is headquartered in St. Augustine, Florida. Ring Power is comprised of eight divisions and has 50 years of experience servicing and supporting Caterpillar and allied equipment.

    Students from 83 Florida highschools, tech centers and colleges compete in the 44th Annual SkillsUSA Competition.Ring Power Training Instructor Bob Delp explains the electrical fundamentals test objectives to SkillsUSA competitor.

    This past spring, the 2011 Florida SkillsUSA Leadership and Skills Conference drew to a close at the Manatee Civic Center in Bradenton, where over 3000 students, educators, business people and supporters from across the state gathered for the 44th annual event. In all, more than 1300 students from 83 high schools, technical centers and colleges throughout Florida competed in 188 skills and leadership contests—the largest number of contests and greatest number of schools in the history of the conference!

    Ring Power Corporation supports the mission of SkillsUSA by taking part every year in the organization’s state-level competitions. This year, nine students competed in the Diesel Equipment Technology trials, which were held in Ring Power’s Sarasota’s heavy equipment shops. Tampa Training Instructor Josh Markosen volunteered his services as a judge of the contestants’ hydraulic fundamentals skills; Ring Power Training Instructor Bob Delp judged contestants on electrical fundamentals skills; Sarasota Heavy Equipment Technician James Freeman judged their electronic engine skills; Sarasota Heavy Equipment Technician Josh Ritter judged their preventive maintenance skills; and Sarasota Heavy Equipment Service Business Manager Nathan Worley judged job interviewing skills.

    Dwayne Rainer, Lakeland Cat Rental Store Field Service Technician, has been involved with SkillsUSA since he was a student. In 1990, when he was class president of his school’s chapter, Rainer took first place in the Florida diesel equipment technology competition and fourth place in the National Competition. Last year, as event chairman of the diesel equipment technology competition, Rainer organized the flow of students through the skill stations and assisted with judging, tallying and submitting the final competition results. This year, Rainer served as coordinator of the competition.

We also added versatile construction machine shopmachines like the Hydrema dump truck with side-dump capabilities. Ring Power Lift Trucks aligned with Exide Technologies to provide the proper forklift battery and battery charger for customer’s forklift applications.

    Retrofit Emission Solutions for Buses, Semi-Trucks and Heavy-duty Diesel Trucks Now Available

    November 4, 2010 at 9:10 AMRing Power
    Donaldson helps semi-truck owners and users to meet critical emissions with filter-based solutions, DOC mufflers and crankcase filtration.

    Look to Donaldson for high-efficiency filter-based solutions, diesel oxidation catalyst mufflers and crankcase filtration.retrofit emission muffler kits

    In addition to other diesel truck parts, Ring Power is now the Donaldson Certified Emission Dealer for Florida. Ring Power sells and services all semi-truck, buses, and heavy-duty on-highway diesel engine emissions and environmental needs. Donaldson’s full-line of products is available, from something as simple as a DOC (diesel oxidation catalyst) which simply replaces a standard muffler to a full-blown DPF (diesel particulate filter) system.

    Diesel engines are a reliable and efficient power source for vehicle and equipment manufacturers and, depending on the age of the engine, emit harmful emissions into the air. Governmental regulations across the globe are driving diesel engine users to consider buying new vehicles or retrofitting their existing engines to meet the new requirements. Donaldson takes a patented “total system approach” to retrofit – delivering solutions that reduce not just what comes out of your tailpipe, but offers a solution to eliminate emissions generated from the crankcase. We have CARB and U.S. EPA-verified solutions and an installation service network ready to help you select the best solution for your fleet.

    Ring Power provides the following Donaldson filtration solutions:
    » DOC's which reduce particulate matter by as much as 20-25%.
    » Spiracle crankcase filtration systems eliminate harmful and unwanted crankcase emissions and allow crankcase to be closed without degrading performance which when combined with DOC's increase the reduction of particulate matter.
    » SEF Muffler System (semi-active electric filter) which is a CARB level 3  DPF device.
    » LNF and LXF DPF muffler systems is a CARB level 3 device using passive technology. This provides the highest amount of PM reduction available today at >90%. Passive DPF's are sensitive to exhaust temperature and minimums must be met to ensure consistent and reliable DPF regeneration.
    » Complete emission retrofit kits, including installation hardware, are available.

    See some of the Donaldson retrofit emmission solutions by clicking the PDF below

    Ring Power is also your source for DPF filter cleaning. Give us a call to see how we can clean your DPF filter. You'll definitely be glad you did!

    Ring Power’s Truck Service Centers are full service centers for buses, semi-trucks, tractor trailers and heavy duty diesel trucks. We are located throughout north and central Florida in St. Augustine, Tallahassee, Perry, Lake City, Lakeland, Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, Daytona Beach, Brooksville, Orlando, Tampa, and Palm Bay.
