Black & McDonald has acquired Power Precision, an electrical solutions provider based in Bathurst, New Brunswick. The acquisition allows B&M to expand its capabilities as well as its service offering throughout Canada.
Power Precision was established in 2007 when Grant Erb consolidated local expertise to meet the region’s need for electrical substations and switchgear services. The company designs and builds electrical equipment and systems for substations and facilities generating, consuming, or controlling electrical energy.
Power Precision’s design and build services include:
- Vacuum Circuit Breakers
- Switchgear with Sensing and Controls
- Substation Protection and Control Panels
- Microgrid Protection and Control Panels
Located on the Bay of Chaleur, Power Precision can access its clients via boat, rail, air, or road. As well as New Brunswick, the company is currently active in Quebec, Labrador, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. The company’s staff includes engineers, technologists, technicians, and electricians.
Power Precision aligns with B&M’s core business, while providing an opportunity to offer a new specialized service. The addition of Power Precision will create companywide support for fabrication of electrical switchgear and control equipment.
The growing trend of electrification will greatly increase the demand for clean energy leading to many opportunities for both Power Precision and Black & McDonald.
The company will continue to operate as Power Precision with Grant Erb in the role of General Manager. This business line will report to Mike Trefry, B&M’s General Manager for New Brunswick.
