We would like to thank everyone who attended our Shepard Shop Grand Opening. It was truly a fantastic evening and we were grateful to be able to bring together an amazing group of industry mavericks to help us celebrate the innovative spirit of Startec at our new shop location.
On October 4, 2018, Startec Compression & Process launched their ground-breaking 102,000 sq. ft. Shepard Shop to a group of 200 Everyday Maverick industry influencers. The event was a celebration of Startec’s unwavering maverick spirit and their unique and innovative way of thinking which has become their trademark when it comes to delivery and service.
Guests were invited to be inspired as they were led through the gigantic shop space, walking amongst the impressive compression and process equipment, getting an exclusive look at the wide range of custom-built solutions and services that Startec provides.
