Williams Industrial Services Group, Subsidiary of Global Power Equipment Group, Announces Strategic Alliance With CarterBrothers Services

TUCKER, Ga., Oct. 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Williams Industrial Services Group ("Williams") (www.wisgrp.com), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Power Equipment Group Inc. (NYSE:GLPW) ("Global Power"), announced today that it has entered into a strategic growth alliance with CarterBrothers Services ("CarterBrothers") (www.carterbrothers.com). Under this arrangement, Williams and CarterBrothers will work closely together to identify opportunities and collectively provide more comprehensive maintenance and construction services to customers throughout the U.S.  

The two companies will complement each other's capabilities and services, and capitalize on their differentiators to bring more options to customers within the power generation, industrial, transit and oil & gas industries. Williams has a long history of providing core maintenance and specialty services to a broad and diverse customer base. CarterBrothers' acquisition of D&N Electric in 2013 has made it a diverse supplier of choice for electrical services needs. 

Ross Marcoot, President of Global Power Services, commented, "Our partnership with CarterBrothers creates a unique combination that broadens the value proposition for both businesses, while also providing more avenues for growth. Leveraging our distinct core capabilities allows us to employ our strong project management expertise with the CarterBrothers' high quality electrical and mechanical capabilities to offer greater value-added service solutions to our customers."

"Today's announcement of our alliance with Williams is a great example of how we continue to respond to our customers' needs," added CarterBrothers' President and CEO, John Carter. "Given our customers' ever-changing environment, we look forward to providing even more services to them under the CarterBrothers name."
