Cowin has been committed to providing our customers rental equipment flexibility throughout our history in the equipment business. In fact, Cowin was renting air compressors as long ago as 1938. We understand rental. We presently have over $100 million in equipment inventory. We also have the delivery equipment, people and service to properly respond to our customer’s needs, whether they’re short term or long term. And, for all of our equipment, rental purchase programs are available. Our machinery service support team has the skills, training, facilities, tools, vehicles, and experience necessary to provide world class service to our customers. We invest heavily in the annual training of our technicians and fulfill the training requirements of all our major manufacturers. Our parts department has an extensive inventory of parts to insure maximum uptime. In fact it has long been our policy to exceed our manufacturers’ “protected stock” recommendations so as to strive to maintain the highest availability percentages available, and help our customer-partners eliminate down time.
