Power Equipment Company, headquartered in Knoxville, Tenn., has been appointed the newest dealer for Epiroc drills, parts, accessories and service in the state of Tennessee effective Jan. 7.

Power Equipment is a member of the Bramco family of companies, one of the largest equipment dealers in North America. Its sister company, Brandeis Machinery & Supply, has been a consistent leader in the drilling business since 1912, first with Ingersoll Rand, then Atlas Copco and most recently Epiroc. This experience, along with Power Equipment's customer service model, allows Epiroc to expand and gain customer support capabilities.

"Power Equipment is a member of the largest and most seasoned drill dealer in the industry. This move allows Epiroc to gain a greater foothold in the state of Tennessee and gives our customers expanded support options," said Turgay Oza, president of Epiroc.

Chris Gaylor, president of Power Equipment, said he is thrilled to have Epiroc become the newest brand for his company.

"Power Equipment is known throughout the state for its partnerships with strong manufacturers and the support our customers receive from us," Gaylor said. "Epiroc is a leader in the drill business which makes it a great addition to our company."

"We have proven success in the drill business," said Michael Brennan, president and COO of Bramco. "Taking Power Equipment's product support focus and pairing it with the resources of Epiroc makes this a clear win-win for drill users in Tennessee. We look forward to continuing to service the Epiroc customers in Tennessee."

Current Epiroc customers in Tennessee will continue to purchase drills, drill parts, drill accessories and receive service from the same staff at the Epiroc store in Nashville, Tenn. These employees will become part of the Power Equipment family and will move from the current storefront upon completion of the new Power Equipment facility in late 2019.

Power Equipment Company is a subsidiary of Bramco Inc., headquartered in Louisville, Ky. Power, together with its sister company, Brandeis Machinery & Supply, has 14 branches throughout Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, northern Mississippi and eastern Arkansas.
