Peterson Power Systems is committed to protecting the environment. We have revised our operating procedures relating to vehicle fleet maintenance, office recycling programs, facilities upkeep, and purchasing options to reflect this commitment. A major part of this program is a parts remanufacturing option we offer in conjunction with Caterpillar, in which replaced parts are returned to the factory for retooling and reuse. This significantly reduces the amount of scrap we discard each year. As a result of our green efforts, Peterson Power Systems is now a certified Bay Area Green Business. This certification demonstrates our dedication to reducing our impact on the environment with the following programs: solid waste reduction, energy efficiency, water conservation, and pollution prevention.

We have 19 locations throughout Northern California to service your needs.

We attribute our longevity and continued success to personalized customer service, honesty, integrity, hard work, social responsibility, cutting edge equipment solutions, and most importantly, our people.

Cresco was founded in 1984 by Chet Cushing in Martinez California. Cresco enjoyed success and growth through the 1980s, creating a stellar reputation throughout Contra Costa County. NorCal Rental Group, LLC, acquired Cresco Equipment Rentals on May 5, 1997. Maintaining the Cresco name, the new Cresco opened facilities across the Bay Area and our corporate office in Livermore, California.

The excellent skills learned under Chet and his General Manager Lou Rossi prepared the small Cresco Team to take on any challenge the new owners presented. They were a young and fearless group who did anything to satisfy a customer. That standard of excellence and work ethic, established at the very beginning, carries us and defines us to this day.
