Security. Warranty. Expertise

Most solar energy companies have only been around a few years, and unfortunately a large percent of startup companies fail long-term. Can you trust a 20 year warranty from a company who just opened their doors? Thompson Machinery has been in business since 1944 and a significant percentage of our business is energy related. Our customers have the peace-of-mind and security of knowing that we’ve been around for over 70 years and back each solar warranty with the Thompson and Caterpillar name.
