On July 1st, Curtis Power Solutions, LLC celebrated its first anniversary, marking the successful merger of Curtis Engine & Equipment Co., Inc. (Curtis Engine) with Western Branch Diesel LLC’s Power Generation Division.
Then, on August 2nd, Curtis Power Solutions acquired Quakertown, Pennsylvania based Emergency Systems Service Company (ESSCO), an mtu power generation sales and service provider whose territory includes eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey, and northern Delaware.
“The combination of these very successful and long-standing businesses, with a concentrated focus on the power generation equipment sales, service, and rental market, will provide additional capabilities and flexibility in responding to our regional and national customers,” said Trip Harrison, CEO of Curtis Power Solutions.
“We look forward to the new opportunities this presents for our customers and employees,” said Bob and Joe Hafich, co-Presidents of ESSCO. “We’re truly excited about the prospect of this new partnership and we look forward to a more prosperous future together.”
A Year After the Merger, Trip Harrison Shares His Thoughts
The ESSCO acquisition builds on the terrific integration we have achieved since the July 1st, 2020, merger of Curtis Engine & Equipment Co., Inc. (Curtis Engine) with Western Branch Diesel LLC’s Power Generation Division. As we celebrate our first anniversary, customers benefit from:
- An expanded geographic footprint. We are closer to you with new locations in Raleigh-Durham and Wilmington, NC, and Fredericksburg, VA.
- A new Energy Solutions business unit that is focused on implementing customized, complex power generation
- Enhanced capabilities. Our larger workforce is better able to deliver mission-critical backup power applications and natural gas combined heat and power (CHP) systems, as well as other alternative power generation technologies such as Microgrids, UPS systems, and battery storage systems.
The addition of ESSCO is a great fit for our strategy to better serve the power generation needs of commercial and government customers on the East Coast. Curtis Power Solutions is now positioned as one of the largest distributors of mtu products and services in North America, with an expanded territory including Pennsylvania, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, along with portions of New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Kentucky.
Now more than ever, Curtis Power Solutions is a premier provider of world-class power generation equipment. We are close at hand, bringing our esteemed customers differentiated value as we respond to your needs with innovative solutions and superior service delivery.
