  • Total Power Celebrates 60 years as Canada’s Trusted Experts in the Supply & Service of Power Generation Systems

    • February 26, 2019
    • News

    For more than 60 years Total Power’s unparalleled reputation for delivering valuable generator solutions and superior customer service has helped it grow to become one of Canada’s largest and most well-established Critical Power Specialists.

    Originally Burlec Sales, the company started in 1959 as a small service-focused team based in Toronto. Eventually adding product sales as an Onan Dealer, the company started to grow. Ownership and location changes took place in the first few decades with the company settling in to Mississauga as its home base. The Total Power name emerged in the 1980s reflecting more clearly what we do. At one time both an industrial/marine engine distributor and PowerGen house, the company’s products and services could be found in a diverse range of applications from skyscraper rooftops to luxury Catamarans.

    Having been partnered with Generac Power Systems since 1992, Total Power is one of Generac’s longest serving and largest Industrial Distributors and is proud to have developed alongside this now global brand. Focusing solely on the PowerGen Industry since 2007, Total Power has grown into a family of hundreds of employees working from seven branch locations in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. When selling about 500 generator projects and performing over 20,000 service calls each year, there’s a lot to do.

    “None of the growth and success we have enjoyed to date would have been possible without our incredible team of employees across the country” said Graham Clark, President of Total Power. “Their dedication and commitment to our clients, and to our team, is what helped us grow to become Canada’s 1st Choice for PowerGen.  As we turn 60, we celebrate with our employees and we thank all our customers, clients and friends for their support over these first 60 years.”

  • Total Power Sudbury Rental Team Busy After Recent Storm

    Recent storms in Sudbury, Ontario, resulted in several damaged homes from high winds and hail.
    The storm, pictured below, blew out windows, knocked down trees and electrical poles, and all within a period of just five minutes!
    Then the power went off.
    The power for most of Sudbury did not return for 12 hours and the phone calls to our Sudbury rental team began.
    As the calls came in, the Total Power Sudbury rental team flew into action renting to grocery stores, restaurants, power and utility companies, and other businesses looking for immediate help.
    This storm, ironically happening just before Emergency Preparedness Week, serves as a good reminder to ensure you are properly prepared!
    Total Power rents generators as small as 15kW up to 2,000W and we offer load banks of all sizes and types. Our rental equipment is built to stand up to the rigors of our tough demanding client base with products that will perform reliably when needed.
    Emergency rental deliveries  – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
