Ft. Mill, S.C.-based Compact Power and its subsidiary companies announced the acquisition of certain assets of DOC Machine Tool Services of South Carolina Inc., a South Carolina-based full-service maintenance corporation.
"The acquisition of the DOC business will better allow CPI to meet the technical and service support needs of our growing customer base, including DOC's customers," said Roger Braswell, Compact Power CEO.
The relationship between CPI and DOC began by working together servicing equipment for The Home Depot Tool Rental. DOC has helped support CPI's growing large equipment service demands by utilizing their national network of service technicians, the company said.
DOC was founded in1988 with a primary focus on field service in the machine tool industry. DOC expanded its service offerings to include machine tool rebuild, retrofit and contract maintenance. In the early 2000's, DOC entered into the light industrial market, offering total service solutions including nationwide service, call center capabilities and parts management.
Specializing in stand-on skid steers such as the PowerHouse and Boxer brands, CPI has become a manufacturer and international distributor of these products to contractors, landscapers, homeowners and national retailers.
Compact Power Services llc will operate the business of DOC and will join the CPI business group, which includes ProHauler Trailers of Ft. Mill, S.C., and Mertz Manufacturing of Ponca City, Okla.
