In 1999, the management of
High Tower Hydraulics Limited
decided to chart a revised course for the company as it approached
the new millennium. The direction that the company decided to take
was one that focused on the needs of the Utility Industry. This
meant that the company had to refocus the attention of its service
department and product lines. The direction taken led to the
affiliation of High Tower and Terex Telelect, one of the oldest and
most respected utility equipment manufacturers in the world. This
relationship has so far led to the following achievements:
Complete capture of the market for
equipment needs of the major utilities in Trinidad and Tobago.
Introduction and expansion of
training for users of equipment not only in Trinidad and Tobago
but in other islands of the Caribbean.
Establishment of contact for the
expansion of our services to several islands.
Advising fleet managers on
mobilization, consolidation, expansion, discards and management
