Power Test Inc., a dynamometer and custom test stand manufacturer, has acquired SuperFlow Technologies/Hicklin Engineering.
Power Test CEO Alan Petelinsek will be working closely with former owner and now general manager Scott Giles and division manager Dave Arsenault to integrate best practices between the companies. The combined dynamometer experience of these three men alone exceeds 120 years, and a multitude of economic cycles.
“Now with our combined strength, we can ensure continued job creation and exciting advancement opportunities for our people,” said Pat Koppa, Power Test president. “Our great employees are vital to fuel our growth and support our ever-increasing worldwide customer base.”
The combined product groups of Power Test now span the spectrum from single cylinder gas engine- powered vehicles and equipment through diesel- and gaseous-fueled equipment, vehicles, and vessels producing up to 10,000 horsepower. The combined competencies include water brake, eddy current, hydrostatic and AC resistive and regenerative systems. Each of these business units has vast experience in supplying and supporting their products to a global market.
“This is an exciting time for the industry as we boomers figure out how to transition our businesses and families through the next generations, and continue to provide these vital products to the market,” said Petelinsek. “We have been very blessed with dedicated and enthusiastic employees to make this transition possible.”
