Kohler Buys Clarke Energy

By pdamon02 February 2017

Kohler Co. has announced that its Power Group has acquired Clarke Energy Ltd., Liverpool, England.  Kohler said Clarke Energy is a multinational specialist in the engineering, construction, installation and maintenance of engine-based power plants and is an authorized distributor of GE’s reciprocating engines in 19 countries worldwide.

“Clarke Energy’s end-to-end capabilities are very highly regarded around the world and the company’s products and services are an excellent fit within our existing power systems business,” said David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co. “We’re excited about this acquisition because it adds the distribution of large gaseous generators – viewed as a clean power source – to our product portfolio. We believe Clarke Energy’s prime and continuous gaseous solutions are an ideal complement to our existing diesel generator offering for standby applications.”

Founded in 1989, Clarke Energy provides distributed power solutions in multiple industries for mostly prime and continuous power requirements. The privately held firm employs more than 1100 people and has established a network of service locations.  Company founder Jim Clarke as well as current CEO Jamie Clarke and all other company leaders will be maintaining their roles following the acquisition, Kohler said.
