WE ARE THE FOREMOST TERRY STEAM TURBINE PARTS AND SERVICE EXPERTS!
A: Why not an OEM? OEMs have much higher burden rates due to higher overheads. Most OEM devote minimal resources to steam turbine generator packages as only 2% of inquiries result in orders, as opposed to 20% of inquiries for other types of turbomachinery they manufacture. When a turbine OEM quotes a turbine generator package, the package naturally includes their turbine regardless of whether it is the best efficiency or lowest price in the market place. Also, in order to support their higher burden rates they must put a substantial markup on the remaining purchased components.
B: Why a packager? STG has a much lower burden rate due to lower overhead i.e. leased facilities, high percentage of labor is subcontracted. Steam turbine generators are our primary apparatus business, so a major portion of our resources are devoted to it. We have spent major resources to develop selection, pricing and specific proposal generating software allowing us to quote all inquiries, large or small, with a complete T-G package proposal in hours not weeks. Most importantly, STG selects the best fit for each and every component in the package, giving our clients an optimized offering, and due to our lower burden rates we mark up purchased item much less than OEMs.
STG does this better than anyone else.
