A Red Deer company that’s best known here for its work in the natural gas compression industry has made a major power play.

Collicutt Energy Services Ltd. has obtained Kohler Power Systems distributorships for Alberta, British Columbia, the Northwest Territories, the Yukon and Nunavut. The company’s U.S. division already services 25 Kohler dealers in California, Nevada, Alaska and Hawaii, with branches in Sacramento and Santa Fe Springs, Calif.; Anchorage, Alaska; and Honolulu.

In Canada, Collicutt Energy operates in Red Deer, Grande Prairie and Rimbey. It now plans to add new branches in Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and other areas, said president and CEO Steven Collicutt in a release.

Kohler Power Systems is among the three largest power generation companies in the world, supplying units for residential, marine, mobile and industrial use.

“This partnership is a key factor in continuing our growth in the power generation industry,” said Collicutt. “The world market now relies on power generation more than it ever has before. Acquiring this quality product line will significantly grow our business over the next two years and we anticipate it will double our business in the industries we serve.”

Founded in Red Deer in 1986, Collicutt Energy specialized in the servicing and manufacturing of natural gas compressors. In 2007, it expanded into power generation in California.

Collicutt Energy sold its Canadian division in 2008 and started Collicutt Compression Solutions Ltd. That business is now active in both natural gas compression and power generation, with an 80,000-square-foot facility in Red Deer, as well as its Grande Prairie and Rimbey facilities.

“Our fastest growing segment is power generation and, based on the price of natural gas, we see this as the driver for many years to come,” said Collicutt.
