Chris Mason, co-owner and head of engineering for Western Technologies, stated “we have chosen to work with Demag transport equipment exclusively because their hoists, cranes, and drive motors are the best available on the world market. The Demag equipment is unsurpassed in its functionality, operation, and durability in the harsh environment of the galvanizing process.” Russell Patterson, the other co-owner, stated that “from a sales and marketing standpoint the Demag equipment requires very little sales effort on our part as the Demag reputation for quality is well known in all industrial markets.”
