Dewey Electronics to expand military generator offerings
Dewey Electronics has announced that it will be expanding its military generator product lines with the acquisition of certain assets, rights of manufacture and intellectual property (IP) from Goodman Ball. The company has signed a definitive agreement to purchase these assets as part of the ongoing liquidation of Goodman Ball by its parent company, CE Niehoff & Co.
The agreement will see Dewey Electronics acquire the IP for two diesel generators intended for use on military vehicles: Model 4310 – a five-kilowatt 28-volt direct current (DC) auxiliary power unit (APU) currently deployed on the M113 Armoured Personnel Carrier command vehicle; and Model 3310 - a twenty-kilowatt DC APU under development for possible use on a future vehicle programme.
Dewey Electronics will also assume responsibilities to maintain certain Goodman Ball contracts with the US Department of Defense that pertain to the acquired product lines; and will take possession of Goodman Ball's existing inventory for these product lines on a consignment basis and will pay Goodman Ball as the inventory is sold to customers.
John Dewey, president and CEO of Dewey, said: ‘We are pleased to have an opportunity to expand our business through this agreement with Goodman Ball. And we are excited to be adding these larger DC APUs to our existing line of generators. In addition to pursuing future sales for these acquired models, we will also use the underlying technology to develop new larger hybrid diesel and battery based power solutions.’
