Alegacy Group was formed in 2013 by Principals Bob Nickles and Bo Pierce as the parent company and General Partner of all Alegacy Entities. Mr. Pierce retired in 2017.
During early meetings (with co-founders Will Reyes and Minnie Beach) the culture and intent of leaving “a legacy” with any new venture became apparent; thus was “Alegacy” born. Both Reyes and Beach previously held roles of increasing responsibility at SEC Energy Products and Services and predecessor companies Exterran and Hanover Compressor Company.
Alegacy Equipment was created with the intent to become the premier independent gas compressor packager. In our combined careers we’ve built more than 6,000 compressor packages, exceeding 5 million horsepower, and surpassing $5 billion revenue. In the first nine years of Alegacy Equipment, we have already sold over $1.5 billion which equates to more than 1.8 million horsepower representing over 1,500 new compressor packages. Will Reyes serves as President of Alegacy Equipment.
Alegacy Development originated to build a superior extra heavy crane-served industrial park for use of similar businesses to its sister company, Alegacy Equipment. At this time, Alegacy Development has in excess of 300,000 SF under-roof.
