Purvis Industries acquires Powder River Power

Purvis Industries announced the acquisition of Powder River Power Inc. located in Gillette, Wyoming.

PRP has been serving Gillette and the surrounding markets for more than 40 years. It primarily serves the oil and gas fields, coal mines, power plants, construction and agricultural industries in northeastern Wyoming.

“Purvis Industries is proud to be able to come together with such a strong independent distributor such as Powder River Power. They bring a great reputation and a strong team to the Purvis family," said Cameron Barker, Purvis Industries vice president of corporate operations. "Powder River Power helps us significantly expand our core markets in the fluid conveyance and bulk material handling space. It also shows how independent distribution continues to make its mark on the industrial bearing and power transmission landscape.”

“We’re looking forward to being a part of the Purvis team and feel they are a great fit for our people and our organization. We both have a strong independent spirit and desire to truly serve the needs of our customers. When two independent companies like PRP and Purvis bring together their resources, it creates an opportunity to provide exceptional service for the customers of the Powder River Basin,” said Mike Lund, president of Powder River Power.
