Total Energy Systems Buys Gen Power Products

Total Energy Systems, LLC, part of Morley-Murphy Co., Green Bay, Wis. has acquired Gen Power Products, Inc., a Kohler generator distributor in Wixom, Mich.

Total Energy Systems is a distributor for Kohler Power Systems’ including industrial, marine, mobile, and residential generators, plus transfer switches and switchgear. The company also is a certified distributor of Kubota generators, Hatz, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, Scania Industrial and Scania Marine engines.

Terms of the transaction, which closed Oct. 1, were not disclosed.  Gen Power Products operations in Eastern Michigan will continue under the Total Energy Systems brand while many of the corporate and executive functions will transfer to Total Energy Systems’ headquarters in Green Bay. Total Energy Systems covers Western Michigan as well as Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota and Northern Illinois.

Acquiring Gen Power Products will make both enterprises stronger, said Chris Stiles, president and managing member of the combined operations. “Having the state covered by two separate organizations allowed for overlap and some unintended competition. Combining the two privately held enterprises under one brand will position us well in the market and put us on par with our competitors.”

Gen Power Products’ President, Don Grau, who founded the company in 1989, plans to retire. Company controller Bob Radtke will remain with the new company in Wixom.
