The Molded Fiber Glass Cos. (MFG) has renamed its field service organization, Texas-based Wind Energy Services Co. (WES), MFG Energy Services. MFG says the name change is meant to provide a clearer identification in the market with the parent company and reflect a broader market scope that fits with plans for expansion into new service areas.

Launched in 2007, WES initially provided on-site inspection, repair and maintenance services to wind farm operators in North America. As the industry matured, offerings were expanded to include more sophisticated diagnostics, factory repairs and refurbishment, and made-to-order replacement parts in conjunction with MFG Wind.

"What sets us apart is MFG's deep knowledge of manufacturing blades and other components accumulated over more than 26 years,” says Gary Kanaby, director of sales and marketing for MFG Energy Services. “We are known for being able to handle the most difficult repair jobs - providing the best service with the deepest engineering talent. And that's why we're growing."
