“Fowler was one of the first to recognize the built-in value of good, used equipment,” says Ring Power President & CEO Randy Ringhaver. “He has been a driving force behind the success of our Used Equipment department, which has contributed greatly over the years to the growth and achievements of the rental, service and parts areas of our business, as well.”
