After 30 years, two months and 15 days, she’s decided to call it quits. Esther joined Great Lakes on August 30th, 1977 as a “keypunch” operator in the Data Processing “department”. She eventually became Manager of the DP group and was instrumental in setting up the Powerlift Division with the NDS system in the late 80’s. Thank You Esther for your loyalty and commitment! Please feel free to send Esther your well wishes as she enters a new and exciting phase of life.
Esther and her cake!

Great Lakes Power Service Company dba US Power
Opens new Branch in Statesville, North Carolina
We are pleased to announce the opening of a new 16,000 sq ft service facility in Statesville, North Carolina. The operation is a result of successful negotiations with Dana Corp to expand our Authorized Service Center relationship by providing Warranty and Defect on Arrival repair services for transmissions, torque converters and axles manufactured by Dana. A major component to the success of the arrangement was the ability to acquire special tooling and key personnel from Dana’s Statesville operation.
In addition to the repair capabilities, the location will provide sales, unit and parts distribution and field service. We are currently in discussions with several of our vendors regarding marketing rights in the Carolinas and Southeastern US. Stay tuned for more announcements.
