Nixon History

With origins dating back to 1914 as RR Nixon Company, Nixon Power Services has been selling stand-by power generators since 1942 when it sold its first Detroit Diesel generator set. In 1969, Nixon was appointed the distributor in Middle Tennessee for Kohler's line of generators, and by the late 70's, Nixon was well established as a power generation company with expanded Kohler territory. In 1989, Nixon was acquired by Geneva Corporation. Under Geneva's ownership, Nixon's territory continued to grow via acquisitions and additional territory awarded from Kohler to cover a significant portion of the Southeast that includes all or parts of 7 states.

Also during this time, the Company directed its focus exclusively to the power generation marketplace and continued to expand its power generation services and offerings. In 2003, Nixon, due to its reputation and capabilities, was appointed the distributor for GE - Jenbacher representing 13 Mid-Atlantic and Southeastern states; an area reaching from Louisiana to Florida to Maryland.

Nixon Power Services marked its 100th year of operations in 2014 with record revenues of $100 million and continued recognition of its excellence from two of the world’s largest power generator manufacturers; Kohler Power Systems and GE Gas Engines (Jenbacher).

Today, Nixon Power Services is the Southeast's and Mid-Atlantic's largest full service organization dedicated exclusively to the sale, rental, distribution, service and technical support of power generation equipment, parts and accessories.
