Gonzales, Louisiana – March 8, 2016. CLIMAX, the leading global manufacturer of portable machining, welding, and advanced valve testing systems and H&S Tool, the top brand in tube/pipe cutting and beveling tools, have opened a new sales and rental facility in Gonzales, Louisiana, creating the largest and most complete line of high-quality portable machining, welding, and advanced valve testing solutions under one roof in the Louisiana. CLIMAX and H&S have also announced their decision to invest more than $1.75 million in a fleet of 100+ state-of-the-art machining and welding tools for our valued customers in the Louisiana rental market.
“When markets are tough and competition is high, why fight hard to win a job, then turn around and hand some of those earnings to your competition. We are the BEST VALUE for the money, every time, with the most complete line of tools. Giving money to your competitor is like losing money twice.”
– Tom Cunningham, President & CEO of CLIMAX
Tom Cunningham, President & CEO of CLIMAX, explains: “We moved into Louisiana because we listened to our customers. CLIMAX and H&S are premier brands, and expert users of portable machining equipment said they needed us there, just like in Houston. One of the main reasons we’re investing is because companies are tired of renting or buying equipment from companies that compete with them. CLIMAX and H&S are the only independent providers of portable machining and welding systems, the only pure-play, and the only company that does not compete with our customers. When markets are tough and competition is high, why fight hard to win a job, then turn around and hand some of those earnings to your competition. We are the best value for the money, every time, with the most complete line of tools. Giving money to your competitor is like losing money twice. Renting from CLIMAX-H&S is like saving money twice!”
Jeff Howard, President of H&S Tool adds: “We understand the Louisiana marketplace has been under-served for years, and by co-locating CLIMAX and H&S under one roof, we now have the ability to provide faster, safer, and more economical solutions to our Louisiana customers. The combination of CLIMAX, H&S TOOL, BORTECH, and CALDER truly separates the CLIMAX Group as the number one company in the Gulf. We offer the most complete and versatile line of products, the best customer service, the most experience, the highest quality, the best talent in the business, and most importantly, as an OEM, we don’t compete against our customers.”
Tim Rhodus, Regional Sales Manager Gulf States adds: “Making the move to CLIMAX I H&S was an easy decision after they expressed how committed they were to investing in the Louisiana marketplace, and they have delivered, with tons of equipment, support, and setting up a really impressive rental facility. I am excited about the opportunity to provide support and deliver on CLIMAX’s promise to provide customers with an outrageously good experience – every interaction, every time, everywhere! I officially invite all users of portable machine tools to make us their first call!”
