The leadership team at Power Test realizes that we are facing a very unique situation with the COVID-19 virus. We want to reiterate that our focus is on our loyal Customers, our dedicated employees, and our communities at large.
The experts have painted a sobering picture for Wisconsin. We are sure this is true for where ever you are located and reading this. We have about 6 million residents in the state. It was determined that 5% of our state population will be affected, resulting in about 300,000 people needing special care. Of those, 20% will require hospitalization. That is 60,000 people vying for fewer than 4,000 ICU and critical care beds in the entire state. Power Test is committed to “flattening the curve”.
Here is what we are doing to support our Customers, Employees and Communities:
We moved about 90% of our Office, Sales and Service staff to remote working situations
The company has been divided into two separate groups to ensure business continuity
These two group are working out of 3 self-contained areas and are divided by a 30-minute break between shifts to clean and sanitize our work spaces.
Financially, we have a company record backlog that we will continue to work on through August of this year. Leadtimes will continue to come down, quality will be a focus and capacity will open, especially for the 3rd and 4th quarters
Power Test has been through three major economic dips in the last 19 years and keeps coming out stronger because we developed and executed our strategic and tactical plans. This situation will be no different. We thank you for choosing the Power Test family of brands: Super Flow, Pivotal Pumps, AIDCO, Stuska, Axiline, Hicklin, and TCRS.

An engine dynamometer is a device used to test an engine that has been removed from a vehicle, ship, generator, or various other pieces of equipment. The intent is to confirm performance before the engine is installed. Power Test dynamometers can help facilities troubleshoot by determining an engine’s functionality while under load. Additionally, they can verify the quality of a build, rebuild, or repair in a controlled environment before the engine is put into use. Having an engine dyno in your facility will give you confidence and peace of mind that your equipment is fully functional, and that it was fixed right the first time.
Power Test’s wide range of engine dynamometers feature water brake, eddy current, and alternating current braking technologies, and are capable of testing engines ranging from 50 to 10,000 horsepower. Our versatile line up of products come available in portable and permanent solutions, with a full catalog of testing designed to Make Your Testing Easy.
