IPS Goes West

Prominent Carolina business acquires two Washington state shops

IPS (Integrated Power Services), the renowned Greenville, S.C.-based motor & generator repair business, has acquired two shops in the state of Washington: Delta Electric Motors and Eastside Electric Motors, per an IPS press release sent to Electrical Apparatus April 14.

Delta Electric, based in Tukwila, WA, and Eastside Electric of Spokane, are both full-service electrical apparatus companies. Luigi DiPietro founded Delta Electric in 1976, following a 14-year career with GE. The DiPietro family acquired Eastside Electric in 2002. They comprise one of the Northwest’s oldest, highest quality service providers. Luigi’s sons, Michael and Joseph DiPietro, lead Delta Electric and Eastside Electric, and will continue in these roles with IPS.

Together, these companies employ 48 people and serve customers in the Pacific Northwest, including Washington, Montana and Idaho, as well as Alaska, British Columbia, and Alberta. Both operations repair all types and sizes of electrical apparatus and participate in the Green Motors Incentive plan. IPS says that, along with its Portland and Denver locations, it can now “offer the largest geographic coverage in the western U.S.”

They’ve certainly got the Evergreen State covered now. Tukwila is just south of Seattle, near the coast; while Spokane is just 20 miles from the Idaho border.

“We’re excited about becoming part of the IPS family,” said Michael DiPietro. “IPS gives us more resources and capabilities to share with our customers, and I think they’re going to like how much more we can offer them.”

“IPS is the industry leader in servicing electrical apparatus,” Joseph DiPietro noted. “When we have tough problems to solve, having that North American network behind us will make a big difference.”

“We’re proud to welcome Delta and Eastside to the IPS family,” said John Zuleger, IPS President & CEO. “The DiPietros have built a well-run business and it’s a privilege for IPS to be able to acquire it. Joseph, Michael and their employees share our values and commitment to chasing world class. We’re excited to show customers how IPS, Delta and Eastside can be their trusted advisors in solving their biggest problems.”
