We are excited to announce the name change within GPM Industries. As many of you may already know, the assets of GPM were purchased by Tencarva Machinery Company on September 30, 2011. Subsequent to the purchase, business was transacted in Georgia under the name, GPM, a Division of Tencarva Machinery Company and it was largely “business as usual” for our vendors supplying products and services to our operations in Georgia. In July of 2013, Tencarva purchased the assets of Pump Technology and Solutions in northern Georgia and went to market as Tencarva Machinery Company. Needless to say, there has been some confusion with our branding strategy.
Effective April 1, 2016, our operations in most of Georgia will be conducted under the Tencarva Machinery Company name (the Savannah market already transitioned to “Hudson Pump and Equipment” in December of 2015). Tencarva Machinery Company is the leading supplier of engineered products in southeastern United States and just celebrated its 38th anniversary. Tencarva is an employee owned company with over 350 employees. In Georgia, we have facilities in Macon, Savannah, and Cumming to support our Georgia customer base but we also have 22 other locations scattered throughout the southeast, many of which have inventory and repair capabilities which can also be utilized to assist our Georgia customers as needed.
