The roots of Powertron go back to the 1960s when it was founded as a generator sales and service company leading to its acquisition in the mid-1970s by a Chicago based generator rental company. In 1999, Powertron was purchased by the Steiner Electric Company as part of a long range strategy to enter the backup generator market.

Since 2008, Powertron has remained a leading name for generator Tap Boxes, transfer switches and generator power cables and accessories.

Powertron is focused on working with the highest quality product and component manufactures within their industry.
