Liquid Combustion Technology, LLC (LCT) announced March 30 that it is contributing 100 power generators vital to Japanese relief efforts to help officials and northern Japan citizens begin the recovery journey from multiple catastrophes.
The LCT donation — made on behalf of the company, its employees and its customers — represents more than $120,000 worth of generators. The generators are built on LCT’s own high-quality engine platforms that can provide more than 1,000 hours of usage, compared to 250 hours from other engine manufacturers. The generators, specifically designed for use in Japan, can be used by officials for relief activities such as medical services and food preparation or by homeowners for appliance, food or rebuilding activities.
“We extend our condolences and sympathy to the citizens of Japan,” said Keith Giddens, president of Travelers Rest, S.C.-based LCT. “At LCT, we are a global engine manufacturer that realizes how power generation can help restore quality of life for Japanese citizens and relief workers. At LCT, we do more than build engines for global OEMs — we build relationships in our markets. We have built ties to Japan’s citizenry and know people who are afflicted by the catastrophes. We are extending our efforts to take care of these people and others in need.”
LCT distributes its engines to world-class OEMs in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Retailers carrying products with LCT engines include Home Depot, Lowe’s, Sears, Costco, Northern Tool, and Sherwin-Williams.
The generators with LCT MAXX engines are designed specifically for use in Japan, and detailed specifications include a 414-cc engine; 7,000 continuous watts; 50 hertz; 4 electrical power output receptacles; electric start; two wheels; and a handle.
“LCT has a strong commitment to corporate responsibilities to our communities throughout the world,” Giddens said. “We are fortunate in this economy to have the resources to enable this contribution, and we urge other companies in South Carolina, the Southeast, and the United States to consider a similar commitment of essential products and services to those in need in Japan.”
