“The skilled workforce in Richland County provides us with an ideal location for our dedicated employees to continue to deliver our world-class diesel technologies and precision manufacturing expertise. This new addition affords us the opportunity for aggressive growth and to pursue new market channels in the OEM and aftermarket space,” said President/CEO of Pure Power Technologies Jerry Sweetland.
