This, along with PSI's expertise in power systems technology and extensive customer relationships, creates a remarkable combination that should expand our customer reach and position us very well for growth in the years ahead."    

"PPPI has established a superior reputation manufacturing engineered diesel and natural gas generator set systems for global power system OEMs, and provides a strategic product line addition and capability set to PSI," commented PPPI COO Ken Trent. "Livingstone's comprehension of PPPI's business model, sector knowledge, and deal acumen were critical to delivering a successful transaction outcome."

"The Trent family has built PPPI into a premier manufacturer of standby and prime power generation system solutions serving customers on a global basis," said Livingstone Director Karl Freimuth. "We are proud to have helped PPPI find the right long-term partner in PSI, and to post another successful sale of a specialized niche manufacturer to a global strategic acquirer."
