We Are PD

We Deliver More.

We believe our success is determined by the success of our customers new and familiar, by the recognition of opportunities obvious and uncertain and by the real value generated by informed and accessible people.

The PD Story

Since our founding in 2014, Power Distributors has undergone a remarkable evolution. Grounded in a corporate heritage that stretches back to 1904, PD was formed through the integration of six of the best independent regional distributors in the United States. While all the collective heritage is impressive the real value lies in the result of combination; PD’s evolution into an industry leader, a national organization with the scope and the scale to offer new solutions, deliver more value and present better opportunities.

Commitment to innovation, technology and continuous improvement is the standard in our company. There is genuine passion in everything we do, and our pledge of achieving the highest levels of service carves out our special place in the market. In today’s world, a company stands alone when it can make the connection between decades-old traditions and the modern marketplace... and do it with purpose and real passion. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but it’s just the beginning of a great story for PD, our people, our customers and our partners.

Shared Legacy

Connected by a decades-long affiliation as Briggs and Stratton Central Service Distributors, the companies that came together to form Power Distributors share a common culture defined by a measured focus on service metrics, a passion for the practical innovations that enable fast and reliable service, and an emphasis on the skilled and engaged people that bring it all together.

With roots that date back to 1904, Atlantic Power has a long history and established reputation in distribution. A central service distributor for Briggs and Stratton engines and parts and affiliated lines from leading green industry manufacturers, Atlantic Power independently served a large network of customers across the Northeast United States and New England until merging with Central Power Systems in December of 2012. The combination of the two companies would form the foundation of Power Distributors.
