Wind Energy Turbine Services, Inc. was nominated by the Workforce Solutions of West Central Texas for its ongoing commitment to its employees, job growth, community, capital investment and service excellence. In the nomination submitted by Business Development Consultant Robert Puls it was stated, “In 2007, Wind Energy Turbine Services (WETS) opened its doors with the mission to provide each and every customer an exceptional commitment to integrity, respect, and quality workmanship. This goal has worked to create and ensure long lasting relationships with some of the largest wind industry businesses on the globe. The company performs maintenance, oil changes, bolt tensioning, and retro-fits and branched out to include OSHA training, Tractel training and CPR/first aide classes which has not only assisted with in-house training and skills of WETS employees but has provided training access to its customers. A core belief of the company is that growth and quality of life of the community is vital for its future which is visible through the owners and a large percentage of its employees volunteering on local boards and investing monetarily in such local organizations as Sweetwater ISD, Chamber of Commerce, Nolan County Livestock Association, SHS Robotics and Fellowship of Christian Athletes to name just a few”.
