Buckeye, which has experience powering businesses, hospitals and even sports arenas, has been in business since 1947.

Buckeye Power Sales, one of the premier power solution providers in Ohio and Indiana, is opening a new branch in the Chicago Metro Area. Buckeye, which has experience powering businesses, hospitals and even sports arenas, has been in business since 1947. It will now serve as the region’s leading Kohler commercial distributor, providing generator sales, service and rentals to industrial and commercial markets. This expansion was made possible by acquiring the assets of the generator sales, service, and rental division of Steiner Electric Co.

"While we have partnered for decades with many companies in Chicago, we are excited to now have a permanent presence in the region," said Tom Bohls, president, Buckeye Power Sales. "We take customer service seriously, and our goal is to provide a higher level of consistent service than our competitors. There's a reason why we continuously earn five-star ratings."

HEAPY, a nationally recognized engineering firm, is one of many long-standing Buckeye Power Sales customers that will benefit from this expansion.

"We are excited to see Buckeye Power Sales expand its footprint in the Midwest. It will allow us to continue to provide our clients with reliable backup power solutions," said Mark Brumfield, CEO, HEAPY. "We look forward to working together to build a more resilient and sustainable society."

With more than 200 employees across the Midwest, Buckeye Power Sales may be one of the largest electric power providers. However, it prides itself on building life-long personal relationships. As a three-generation, family-owned business, the leaders have worked their way up through the organization. They know how to address customer needs and train teams accordingly. Recently, the company received Kohler's Industrial Distributor of the Year award for 2020.

"I remember visiting my grandfather at the office as a kid and being interested in all the equipment," said Bohls. "He would be so proud to see how we've grown the company while maintaining our commitment to our customers, our team, and our communities. It's all about building strong relationships and delivering on our promises every time."

Buckeye Power Sales’ new location is located in Romeoville, Ill., about 25 miles southwest of Chicago. The company offers additional regional dispatch points for convenient service.
