Kohler_logo_174x174Kohler Power Group, a manufacturer of engines and power generation systems, acquired Clarke Energy from Liverpool, England. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Clarke Energy’s end-to-end capabilities are very highly regarded around the world and the company’s products and services are an excellent fit within our existing power systems business,” said David Kohler, president and CEO of Kohler Co. “We’re excited about this acquisition because it adds the distribution of large gaseous generators—viewed as a clean power source—to our product portfolio. We believe Clarke Energy’s prime and continuous gaseous solutions are an ideal complement to our existing diesel generator offering for standby applications.”

Clarke Energy is a “multinational specialist in the engineering, construction, installation and maintenance of engine-based power plants,” Kohler said. It is also an authorized distributor of GE’s reciprocating engines in 19 countries.

Founded in 1989, Clarke Energy, a privately held firm, employs more than 1,100 people. Kohler said it will keep all employees on board, including company founder Jim Clarke and CEO Jamie Clarke.
