Power Quality International (PQI), a manufacturer of transformers and filters in Pasco, was recently listed on GrowFL’s "50 Companies to Watch.'' The company doubled its workforce this year and plans to continue to grow and hire over the next few years.
PQI manufactures highly energy efficient transformers and filters that help various types of facilities reduce energy costs. The green products are well suited for LEED facilities, which has played a vital role in the company’s growth.
"PQI has grown due to a deep understanding of the nuances of energy efficiency within facilities such as commercial buildings, hospitals, schools and data centers,'' says Shaun Ferguson, president of PQI
. "By applying industry leading products in a solutions approach that provides real and significant savings to building owners, both in new construction and in retrofit scenarios, we are able to provide value added products and services to the market and enjoy growth and new market penetration.''
As PQI continues to add clients and projects, the company plans to hire additional workers with industry expertise.
"PQI expects to add technically oriented power-systems engineering positions, as well as other support positions as growth dictates over the next couple of years,'' says Ken Sparks, VP of sales and marketing.
In addition to the company’s listing on GrowFL’s Companies to Watch roll, PQI will be recognized at a special awards gala ceremony Friday, Oct. 19, at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando.
