Why deal with more than one company when you don’t have to. We can do it all.
Powerhouse is a leading expert and innovator in the boiler business, powering companies with boiler services and rentals across North America and the world. We have established a sterling reputation in the industry and look to improve it with every job.
In 1980, Powerhouse started as Steam-Rent, a small division of Penn-Jersey Boiler. Paul A. Stohner took this small division and incorporated Powerhouse Equipment in 1982. Immediately, Powerhouse started repairing and servicing boilers in NJ, PA, DE, MD and NY.
Soon after his business started, Paul realized something, something big. Customers couldn't afford downtime. With this perspective, Paul reimagined the boiler business and started providing temporary boilers.
The original concept was simply a used boiler sitting on a trailer. Paul and his team elevated this design to become the foundation of Powerhouse. Instead of used boilers, only new boilers and new components were used. Over the years, the functionality, quality and reliability of these rental boilers increased. At the same time, we built a network of the best boiler manufacturers. This allows us to provide you with the expertise and equipment you need, anytime and anywhere.
For nearly 40 years, Powerhouse has solved the power needs of companies worldwide. The company started in a double-wide office trailer and has transformed into a 30,000 sq. ft. facility in Delanco, New Jersey. Now, the next chapter of the family business begins as Powerhouse was acquired by Atlas Copco in June 2019.
Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Atlas is a world-leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions. Together, Atlas and Powerhouse can provide our customers with more resources to deliver a complete portfolio of temporary utility solutions.
We may have the largest fleet of Portable Boiler Rooms, but that doesn't stop us from going above and beyond. We still take pride in our work and hold ourselves accountable, why? Because as Paul says, "It's the right thing to do."
