Generac acquires Pramac America assets

Waukesha-based Generac Power Systems has acquired some assets of Kearney, Neb.-based Pramac America LLC, from Siena, Italy-based Pramac Industries Inc.

The transaction price was not disclosed.

Pramac America manufactures and distributes portable generators, water pumps and other related products under the Pramac, Powermate, DeWalt and Porter Cable brands under a licensing agreement with the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Generac purchased the Powermate brand, working capital and equipment from Pramac. It will also assume the licensing agreement for the DeWalt and Porter Cable brands. The entity will be renamed Powermate America LLC.

Pramac previously announced it will close its Kearney facility. That closure will still happen, Generac said, but it will retain the Marietta, Ga. location and operate the business from there.

Generac acquired the assets to expand its portable engine powered tools offerings.

“It will provide even greater distribution opportunities for both companies and allow Generac to leverage our combined scale and strength to create value for our customers in sourcing, distribution, manufacturing and product design,” a Generac spokesman said.
