About Power Systems West

EC Power Systems became Power Systems West in December of 2017. With our recent major investments in infrastructure, and our Authorized Distributor relationship with Kohler, the time for a name change had arrived. We have separated from the electrical construction company brand we started under and are recognizing the regional powerhouse we have become. 

We opened our doors in 1955 as a division of EC Electric Company, later becoming EC Power Systems. We specialized in the sales, service, rental and parts distribution of industrial power products. Today, we continue to sell and service multiple product lines of commercial generators, engines and parts across the Western United States. Each EC Power Systems branch is staffed with experienced, factory-trained professionals who are prepared to answer your questions and match your commercial power needs with the right equipment.  

Power Systems West is headquartered in Portland, Oregon. We have offices in Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Montana. Our services include:

  • Field repair of all makes of generators
  • Engines and switch gear
  • Emergency service & maintenance agreements for engines,
  • Standby generators and switchgear
  • Custom equipment, modifications, gas and diesel power units
  • Welding equipment repairs

Safety Is No Accident

At EC Company & EC Power Systems, we believe all accidents and injuries are preventable. Our top-down commitment to ZERO accidents and injuries translates to savings for our customers. The prevention of accidents and injuries is achieved through control of the working environment and control of our actions and attitudes. 

Among our most valued assets is the combined knowledge and experience of our supervisors, foreman, and craft personnel who accept their responsibilities to prevent accidents and injuries while working. Safety is everyone’s personal responsibility. The quest for an Incident Free Environment is what drives us, making safety a part of our company’s fabric - not an appendage.
 
Each employee understands that safe performance requires careful planning. Planning creates a safe workplace and promotes efficient performance in all aspects of our work. A company that has an effective safety program will have a working environment in which operations can be conducted economically, efficiently and, above all, safely.

EC Power Systems believes it’s important to give back and support the causes that improve the lives of those around us; our employees, our clients, our families, and our neighbors. From the communities where we work to the places where our generators and engines are sold, our goal is to make a difference and enrich our quality of life.

Loaves and Fishes

Each week 2 of our 30 plus employee volunteers take a company van and deliver meals to homebound seniors. This is a great reminder of how an hour or two can make a huge difference to those who can’t manage cooking or buying food for themselves.

Habitat for Humanity
EC Power Systems volunteers from several of our branches partner with Habitat for Humanity in their local areas to build two to three homes for deserving families each year. Our volunteer builders range in experience from highly skilled electricians to novice office employees.

Supporting Our People
In addition to our primary causes we also support a variety of other causes that are important to our employees; youth sports team sponsorships, Race for the Cure participation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, blood drives, food banks...even building a school in Uganda, Africa. We are deeply committed to the communities we serve.
