Midwest Equipment (MWE) has announced it has acquired Westpro Power Systems, a manufacturer of Westinghouse portable power products. Through the acquisition, MWE adds portable generators and digital inverter generators to its product offerings that include compact equipment tracks and tires, undercarriage components and portable climate control systems. The Westinghouse Portable Generators will be sold through various distribution channels and through MWE as an offering to rental and equipment dealerships.

“We’re committed to expanding our product offerings in the primary industries we serve," says James Cline, president at MWE. “Having offered Westinghouse products to customers of our ClimateRight portable climate systems for several years now, we saw an opportunity to bring those quality products under our roof. We also plan to offer the product line to our rental and equipment dealers. Also, Westpro Power Systems has a very talented team, and we are happy to have them continue to support the product line and join us.”
