In 1992, Powertech Associates was formed by Bill Campbell and Rich Ellis. After years of experience working for another manufacturers' rep in the valve industry, Bill and Rich saw a need in the market for a total solution provider in the utility marketplace. Their idea was to provide customers with solutions and products covering all aspects of the electric utility industry, including both overhead and underground distribution, substations, metering, testing, tools, transmission, safety, services and the newest technologies. With a line card consisting of both best-of-breed and niche, up-and-coming manufacturers, the goal of Powertech Associates is to introduce these products and solutions to its customers and then support them with their applications.
In 1995, Utility Power Supply Company was created out of a desire to better serve Powertech Associates customers with a source to buy local stock quickly and efficiently. At the warehouse, located in Farmington, CT, UPSC distributes product for several of the companies that are represented by Powertech (see line card for the companies that UPSC stocks).
The mission of Powertech Associates and UPSC is to provide a
customer-centric experience and to be a trusted resource of information and expertise in the electric utility field.
