Economic Development in Dickinson: LTR Moving, Expanding

Best data point in the article -- origin of Light Tower Rentals:
LTR is planting roots in Dickinson. The oil field rental company broke ground on a new facility in the Five Diamond Development ....

LTR, which started as Light Tower Rentals in 1994 in Odessa, Texas by John Avary and Ted Hogan, rents not only light towers and generators, but winch trucks, heaters and a slew of other Oil Patch needs, according to its website.
This is a new facility. LTR had been located off Highway 22.

And more:
The light towers are composed of four lamps similar to those used on athletic fields for night games, he said. The 26-foot mast holds 1,250 watt light bulbs. The generators range from 70,000 to 300,000 watts.
LTR rents to anyone who needs the equipment they provide, including road crews, Slavey said.
“When they were doing (Highway) 22 up here all the light towers … were ours,” he said.
