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.
