Part of the Cat(R) Electrical Repair Center network, a global program, Shermco is authorized to perform rewind repair and maintenance on critical electrical components of Cat generators used in the power generation, construction, and oil and gas industries and has been contracted by Caterpillar to sell Advanced Wear Coatings services in the industrial marketplace. Applicable to the steel, mining, agriculture, power generation, plastics, and other industries in which wear and part corrosion is an issue, the services reduce the cost of parts and extend their life cycle.

"Many times these coatings and remanufacturing solutions have extended the part's lifecycle for companies to well beyond its expected original life."
