“Our second quarter results continue to demonstrate the success we are experiencing in executing our Powering Ahead strategic plan,” said Aaron Jagdfeld, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We executed on very strong organic revenue growth again this quarter which was broad based across our major product categories and all significant regions of the United States. Our growth was driven by continuing adoption of home standby generators, the further expansion of our distribution, and increasing demand within certain of our commercial and industrial end markets. When you combine our organic growth initiatives with our recent acquisitions, we are driving a new and higher baseline of demand for our products, while also becoming a more balanced company with global scale."
