Feb. 5, 2014 -- Kelly Generator & Equipment, Inc. (KG&E) recently announced that Generac has closed the purchase agreement with Baldor Electric Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ABB Group, to substantially acquire all the assets of Baldor's generator products division. 

The purchase expands Generac's product offering by increasing the diesel-powered, single-engine capabilities from 600 kW to 2 MW and expanding the industrial towable product offering through 500 KVA. It also provides a prime power offering in both diesel through 350 kW and natural gas through 323 kW for the first time. The transition will also enable KG&E to build larger paralleled generator systems with less individual generators

Accordingly, the purchase provides KG&E with the products and services that the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale markets require throughout Pennsylvania and West Virgina as well. The Baldor units can be used with traditional or existing paralleling switchgear systems at hospitals, data centers and other large power users manufactured by any of the traditional manufactures.
