Pioneer Transformers L.P. Announces Rebrand as Spire Power Solutions L.P., Creating a Platform for Growth
The parent brand brings together the reliability and reputation of three leading distribution transformer manufacturers.
ATHENS, Ga. -- Pioneer Transformers L.P., a portfolio company of Mill Point Capital, announced it is rebranding as Spire Power Solutions L.P. (“Spire”), an industry leader providing a comprehensive range of transformers solutions across North America.
With five locations across North America, Spire operates three subsidiaries - including Pioneer Transformers in Granby, Quebec; Power Partners, and Jefferson Electric, both in Athens, Georgia; bringing together a complete product offering for utility, renewable energy, public power, commercial, and industrial markets.
“Our new brand combines our existing strengths to provide customers more value,” said Justin Smith, Spire CEO. “With a new identity and website, we now have the platform to share our full suite of solutions - and set ourselves apart from the competition.”
Spire was originally formed during Mill Point Capital’s acquisition of Pioneer Transformers and Jefferson Electric in August 2019. Known then as Pioneer Transformers L.P., the company acquired Power Partners in November 2019.
“We are thrilled to announce this new brand - and to leverage it for the benefit of our customers, employees, and other partners,” said Antony Besso, Executive Chairman of Spire and Executive Partner at Mill Point Capital. “This new chapter reflects our ongoing investment into industry growth and innovation.”
