Our goal is to be instrumental to our customers’ success by delivering state-of-the-art compression systems that safeguard plant reliability and availability,” Fukuda said. “The pride that we take in our work comes from continually meeting that goal, and from the trust we earn from our customers as a result of delivering valuable solutions time and time again.”
