Global Compression opens new facility in Marcellus
By Keefe Borden24 June 2021
Part of company’s plans to expand into the Northeast U.S.
Global Compression Services, a one-stop shop for natural gas compressor equipment parts and services for operations across the globe, has opened a new 5000 sq. ft facility in the heart of the Marcellus Shale in Washington, Pa.
Global Compression Services already operates from 11 locations servicing the top shale plays in the lower 48 U.S. states. The new facility is part of the company’s planned expansion into the northeast (Marcellus and Utica) market.
The machine shop will be capable of repairing any compressor component. A Faro scanning tool will enable high quality repair of Ariel CP valves and a Mazak CNC lathe will perform machining of the valve. Two manual lathes will be capable of turning up to 22-in. in diameter. The facility will stock inventory for nearly all of Global Compression’s product offerings.
The facility’s team will be led by the machine shop foreman, Michael J. Fithian, who has more than 35 years of experience as a machinist with more than 20 years of experience in compressor repair and manufacture of new compressor parts.
“We will be able to repair any compressor part that needs to be fixed and we will be strategically located to partner and expand with our customers across their entire region of operation,” Fithian said. “We expect to bring faster turnaround times and offer aftermarket products that provide improved availability and lower cost options, passing on significant improvements on run times and operations.”
The facility address is: 2827 West Chestnut St., Washington, PA 15301 and an Open House will be held on July 22, 11:30 am to 4:00 pm, which will be open to the press and public. No R.S.V.P. is required and lunch will be provided.
