It’s official. Power Drives, Inc. (PDI) has moved into our new 77,000 square foot facility in Buffalo, NY, co-locating our headquarters and manufacturing operations to improve efficiencies and expand capacity. Our move is part of PDI’s long-term strategic plan for the future growth of the company as we strengthen our commitment to provide the best possible products and services for our customers.
The new headquarters site in Buffalo’s historic Larkin District brings manufacturing, training, and administrative functions under one roof to complement the team spirit among PDI employees so crucial to our success. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of all of our associates who helped make the move a success. Careful planning went into designing a professional, efficient work environment to support PDI’s core values of:
- Continuous Improvement
- Respect, &
The building features the latest manufacturing technologies and the site offers plenty of room for expansion to accommodate the future growth we expect to achieve. PDI was recently named one of Western New York’s fastest-growing companies by Buffalo Business First, and we are proud to be part of the continuing renaissance underway in this centrally located, vibrant city.
While our roots are firmly planted here in Buffalo, PDI has come a long way in our 70-year history. In addition to our new headquarters, PDI has facilities in Erie, Pennsylvania and Changshu, China, serving a wide variety of customers around the globe.
Founded in 1946, PDI designs and manufactures custom-engineered hose and tube assemblies for original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and engineered systems for locomotives and other mobile equipment. PDI designed and patented our own, proprietary line of idle reduction systems called Powerhouse™ for the locomotive market. We also distribute a wide range of hydraulic, pneumatic and electromechanical components for fluid conveyance, motion control and power transmission applications through stocking locations and B2B retail locations.
