By DJ Slater30 October 2020

Rod Shurman knows all about Caterpillar’s presence in the gas compression community and how it has grown during his tenure. Shurman has spent 23 years in management positions at Caterpillar Oil & Gas.

During that time, he’s seen the importance of developing dependable engines and electric motors among other equipment. But reliable products are only part of the equation. Customer support is also crucial to building and maintaining a strong role and reputation in the industry.

Now, in the face of a global pandemic and an evolving energy landscape, Shurman discussed how Caterpillar will use its experience to navigate the uncertainty while further building on the company’s well-established legacy.

Our company is navigating the environment by continuing to facilitate operations with customers through our support and solutions that will benefit not only in the present but when economic conditions return to normal capacity in the future.
