Building on its mission statement, "The Right Product, The Right Service, The Right Support", Laborde Products, Inc., headquartered in Covington, Louisiana, is opening a new division, Laborde Equipment Services (LES) in San Antonio, Texas. This new facility will provide service to the rapidly expanding San Antonio metro area and the exploding oil and gas Eagle Ford Shale market. LES will provide fast, on-time service for all makes of diesel and gas engines and engine driven equipment, as well as hydraulic and electrical service. They will also stock and provide parts for a broad range of support.

Laborde said it has employed highly qualified and experienced technicians to meet the 24/7 demands. Fully equipped new service vehicles complete with cranes and compressors will aid the support effort and help minimize customer downtime. They fully understand the urgency, need for quick response and absolute necessity to reduce the time an operator is down.

Laborde Products, Inc. has been providing manufactured products including diesel-powered generators, pump packages, pressure washers and other equipment over the past 15 years under its Diesel America trademark. It is a distributor for most of the Gulf Coast and up the Mississippi River basin for Mitsubishi, Yanmar, Hatz and FPT diesel engines (horsepower from 5 to 3,000 hp, liquid and air-cooled options for all types of applications).

Roger Markwardt will head the new division. Markwardt has over 30 years of experience in the diesel engine and rental industries, having most recently managed a fleet of over $150 million in various types of industrial equipment. He has also owned and operated a diesel equipment service, sales and manufacturing business and has strong relationships throughout the industry.

The new Laborde facility is located on the southeast side of San Antonio in an 18,000 sq. ft., three-acre facility with 15 ton overhead crane capacity.
