Trystar acquires Load Banks Direct

Nov. 15, 2020

Trystar, Faribault, Minn., has acquired Load Banks Direct (LBD), Covington, Ky., a manufacturer of high-capacity load banks used for full-power load testing of emergency power systems. The acquisition will complement Trystar’s market position as a major supplier of portable and permanent power solutions for a broad range of customers, including rental.

“Trystar and Load Banks Direct are very similar organizations with a similar approach,” said Andrew J. Smith, CEO, Trystar. “We both make industry-leading products and provide high levels of customer support. We both have customers in the rental industry and in critical applications like data centers, hospitals, hotels, schools and others. We also both excel at providing custom designs to meet specific customer needs, something that distinguishes us both from our competitors. LBD products have been connected to Trystar docking stations thousands of times over the years. This new relationship will harness the extensive technical knowledge of both organizations to create new products and solutions that neither could supply alone.”

Martin Glover, president, LBD, said, “Our teams will remain focused on execution of our businesses to ensure we continue to provide the industry-leading support customers have come to expect. In addition, both LBD and Trystar customers will have greater access to the technical resources of both companies and benefit from working with a combined organization on critical projects.”

Trystar designs and manufactures a wide range of portable and industrial power products including panels, I-Lines, transformers, portable automatic transfer switches (ATS) and welding racks. They also manufacture single- and dual-purpose generator docking stations, load bank and rotary docking stations and UL-891 rated switchboards
