Who is PowerX International LLC?
Since 2001 PowerX International LLC has operated as a trusted supplier of high force and mobile hydraulics to industry OEMs designing, engineering and manufacturing high-pressure hydraulic products for their private label needs. Many of these customers are well known in the industry and are leaders in their markets. PowerX has staked its reputation on supplying mission critical products that are of very high quality at an affordable price. This has been, and continues to be, PowerX’s value statement to the industry.
Originally started as a hydraulic seals and components supplier in the 1990’s, the business was re-formed as Able International Inc in 2001 and began its journey as a trusted hydraulic system supplier to many USA based OEMs. In late 2016, Thom Farrell, former Global President of SPX Hydraulic Technologies (brands: Power Team, Stone, Hytec, Globe, Bolting Solutions) purchased the company and in January 2017, he renamed it PowerX International LLC. Since then, the company has expanded its focus on developing and manufacturing its own product line of high force hydraulic tools and pumps under the PowerX brand name.
Thom has brought with him experienced commercial and engineering leadership from within the industry. Joe Hegedus, Global VP Sales & Marketing, has been in top leadership roles at SPX Hydraulic Technologies and Hydraulic Supply Company. Joe’s vast knowledge of building out strong distribution-based sales channels and customer centric networks has been invaluable to PowerX as it launched its own brand in the industry. Doug Miller, VP Engineering, has previous experience as Director of Global Engineering for Enerpac and Director of New Product Development for SPX Power Team. Doug’s product knowledge and “out of the box” ingenuity allows us to develop new solutions for our customers. Combined, the leadership team brings over 75 years of experience of industrial hydraulics expertise to the company.
Markets Served by PowerX
Our products are in use every day across multiple industries including infrastructure construction, mining, rail, oil & gas, petrochemical and refining, power generation, steel and aluminum plants, paper mills, sugar mills, ship building and repair, and by industrial service companies that support these market sectors.
Our Distribution Network
Our team began developing strategies and processes to increase our sales capability and geographical reach in early 2017. We have pivoted from a heavily OEM focused and mid-west centric business to become a significant player in the distribution of high-force hydraulic products across North America and into Southeast Asia. The US distributor network has expanded the past couple of years to TX, WI, MN, CO, SD, ND, WY, FL, GA, AL and TN while internationally to Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru. In late 2018 and early 2019 we began partnerships with distributors in Australia and Singapore.
Why Distributors Choose PowerX
At present, we have developed and launched the most rewarding distribution program in the industry.
At a time when high-pressure hydraulic distributors of competing brands are experiencing gross margin declines, receive less training and technical support and experience longer lead times, PowerX distributors enjoy promoting a premium product with a strong value proposition, backed by a team that is willing to serve them. Distributors are rewarded with increased margins, reduced inventory investment, increased inventory turns, reduced order handling cost and co-op marketing funds.
Why End User Customers Choose PowerX
Simply put, PowerX International LLC manufactures a high performance, premium product at an affordable price and is backed by world class customer service and an industry leading warranty. Customers value our training programs designed to train operators and maintenance staff in the safe use and maintenance of PowerX high-pressure hydraulic systems and tools.
