To deliver and build on this new capability, WWS has brought on a large team of dedicated technical experts, field engineers, large corrective specialist technicians, and supply chain professionals with decades of experience. In addition to the new staff, WWS is investing in the tools and equipment, safety professionals and processes, and enhanced training to bring these services to our valued customers.
In March of this year, WWS was acquired by Pearce Services which reinforced its mission as an independent service provider for critical infrastructure in the renewable energy industry. The leader of the renewables division for Pearce Services, Mark McLanahan commented, "The growth of our team at WWS and our industry has been extraordinary this year. Our integration with Pearce Services and the alignment in our mission to safely service our customers has made our platform stronger than ever and well-positioned to meet our customers' expanding needs with these new technical capabilities."
Each year WWS has met the rapid growth of the industry by enhancing its service capabilities and growing its team. With over 500 technicians now working in the field, WWS works tirelessly to serve our OEM, owner, and operator customers with an elite workforce.
