HPA USA Streamlines Equipment Staging

"The biggest benefit for us having the Bison container jacks is the ability to be self supportive in the refineries in which we work. There are times it takes 2 - 3 days to stage equipment and assets and a lot of manpower, whereas we can go in there with just a few guys and the Bison jacks, unload our equipment and get out of the way of the other contractors."
