Lexington, Ky.-based New South Equipment Mats, a provider of crane work platforms and temporary access roads for heavy equipment, has announced its entry into the wind industry with the launch of a wind energy division.

Emtek, a New South Equipment product, can reduce a job's environmental footprint because of its efficient production process, according to the company.

"Our customers value our partnership approach," says Drew St. John, president of New South Equipment Mats. "Most mat companies just sell or rent mats and then are on to the next customer. New South not only offers innovative, environmentally friendly products, but a range of services that make us a one-stop shop for our customers. Plus, in the face of continued regulatory and environmental scrutiny, our customers appreciate being able to use a mat that has so many 'green' characteristics, from production to field implementation."
