Longview Company Donates Equipment to TSTC

(MARSHALL) – A Longview company recently made a sizeable equipment donation to Texas State Technical College in Marshall.

J-W Power Co. gave the college items valued at more than $41,200, including drums of hydraulic oil, rectangular tubing, ball valves and structural steel.

“We are glad we can donate some parts and raw goods to TSTC,” said David Ramaly, the company’s plant manager. “The parts that are being donated are components that are used in packaging gas compressors and will be able to be used by the students to learn about different aspects of compressor packages.”

The items will be divided among TSTC’s Industrial Controls Technology, Industrial Maintenance, Precision Machining Technology and Welding Technology programs. The equipment will be used by students in course labs.

“These components will help to broaden students’ exposure and increase accessibility to items not currently available to them,” said Nathan Cleveland, TSTC’s associate provost of instruction.

J-W Power Co. sells, leases and services standard and custom natural gas compression equipment and has the largest privately owned compression fleet in the United States.
