For important details regarding Covid-19

Status Update

April 20, 2020

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. Please contact your Sales or Service representative if you have any questions or concerns.

Custom Engineered Solutions

In addition to Power Test’s wide variety of standard equipment, many non-standard powertrain test requirements demand sophisticated engineered solutions.

This is why Power Test formed its Custom Engineered Solutions division. This team utilizes Power Test’s industry-leading engineering expertise to create a solution to fit any unique application. The Engineered Solutions team studies all aspects of the test requirement to determine the optimized test solution. The concept is taken by the team of mechanical and electrical engineers to create a new machine design. CAD designers develop solid models of the new test stand for customer review and approval prior to release to our manufacturing operations group, where the testing solution is custom-built.
