Pacific Power Reps (“PPR”) announced today two new manufacturers have signed contracts to have PPR represent them to the utility industry across all 10 states of the PPR territory. Virginia Transformer and Industrial Electric Manufacturing (“IEM”) boost PPR’s ability to serve their customers with high-end substation and power generation (“power-gen”) products in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, Montana, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. PPR is also able to support EPC firms (engineering, procurement, and construction firms) both locally and nationally across the USA.
“PPR is making a strategic move into the electrical substation and generation arena,” says Greg Albertyn, president, Pacific Power Reps. “We are excited to align with manufacturers that share our same vision for growth. The addition of Virginia Transformer and IEM allows us to expand our product offerings so we can more wholly and completely service our electric utility customers with packaged groups of products for more complete substation solutions.”
With high-demand due to the current wildfires, new development, aging infrastructure, and expanding need for substations, mobile units, and power generation, the timing of these new contracts is more important than ever. IEM has solutions for utility companies, and Virginia Transformer has solutions for electrical utilities, EPC firms, commercial and industrial power entities, including data centers, refineries, and heavy industrial organizations.
