Mississauga, ON — Hercules Tire Canada has teamed up with Power on the Go Canada Inc. and plans to sell, warehouse and distribute POTG portable generators through Hercules dealer outlets across the country.

“During our meetings with Mike Pynkoski and his team at Power on the Go, we realized there were synergies between the two companies and opportunities to grow this market — everyone is keen about the prospects,” said Rob Keller, vice-president of Hercules Tire Canada.

“Initial response from our dealers has been positive and we’ve already started shipping units. We have designated Bruce McCarte at Hercules to manage this business opportunity,” Keller said.

“We’re adding 20 new SKUs, ranging from single circuit portable generators to larger units designed for refrigerator trucks,” Keller added.

“There’s a key cost-saving benefit for truckers maintaining their refrigerated trailers at truck stops. As an alternative to engines idling, these portable generators can provide the same function – at a fraction of the cost and energy,” Keller said.

Hercules Tire Canada offers a wide selection of commercial tires, consumer tires and wheels for all applications through its network of 350 dealers located in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
