Industry Supplier of the Year, Northeast 2012

Awarded to: Total Equipment Company


Total Equipment Company was established in 1982 as an industrial pump and compressor supplier.  Our heritage was based in the steel manufacturing industry.  As the steel industry went through a stressful period, TEC developed a long range plan to diversify into other industries. That charted the course for TEC to investigate and respond to the energy and the municipal waste water treatment industries.  What we learned we applied to the needs of the industrial waste water treatment industry.   Both of these new industries prepared TEC for the next wave of opportunities: Natural gas.

Our core competency of pumps and compressors is at the heart of the natural gas industry.  This included stationary and diesel engine driven water pumps for the water supply to the drilling and completions operations. We even added a large rental fleet of Gorman Rupp diesel pumps.

The flow back and produced water associated created new opportunities for the waste water treatment area of the gas industry.  TEC has been successful in supplying equipment for these needs as well.  When water treatment was passed over for disposal into injection wells, TEC has the right product there as well.

As the mid stream infrastructure is built, TEC has benefited as well.  Gas processing facilities use many NGL pumps and instrument air compressors supplied by TEC.  In order to become a supplier to these locations we had to learn new business requirements including getting on ISNet and establishing MSA’s (Master Service Agreements).  TEC has been successful in packaging instrument air systems in new ways (on skids and in containers) to meet the industry needs.

Total Equipment is the region’s largest service provider for pumps and compressors.  Our large service department and in house machine shop equip us to respond quickly. In addition our technical services (laser alignment, balancing, field flow testing) lead the market in capabilities.
