West Coast Tomato Growers | Hawthorne Cat Customer Spotlight

West Coast Tomato Growers (WCTG) relies on Hawthorne Rentals to provide three Cat generator sets during tomato season. According to the RunReady Magazine article, Vine Ripe, the rental generators ensure WCTG has enough backup power to run a smooth operation for packing and refrigerating 50 truckloads of tomatoes daily. 

WCTG Maintenance Supervisor, Russ Moiser continues, "I call (Hawthorne Rentals), and (Hawthorne Rentals) are right there to give us what we need. The generators are set up real well-they send an experienced technician who makes sure that everything is functioning properly."
