Lufkin Industries looks into new venture

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin Industries is seriously considering getting into the windmill repair business, according to a company spokesman.

Vice President Paul Perez said the company will review the possibility on Tuesday at a civic club luncheon.

"We see that as a further diversification of the work we do," Perez said.

Perez said he feels the timing may be right to look into the market due to the Obama Administration's emphasis on saving energy.

Tonight on KTRE News 9 at 6, Perez will discuss further details of the plan.
