History

  • 1958 – Established in Portland, Oregon as the Pacific Diesel Power Company, Pacific primarily handled diesel engines for trucks and generators for off-highway, marine, and industrial applications.
  • 1982 – Pacific adds Allison Transmissions  to our product lines and changed the company’s name to the Pacific Detroit Diesel-Allison Company (PDDA). Pacific Detroit Diesel-Allison became known as the Detroit Diesel engine and Allison transmission distributor for the Northwest, as well as a leading source for generator sales and service. The company also began expanding beyond Oregon and Washington to include Alaska and Hawaii.
  • 1990 – PDDA continued to experience tremendous growth and added numerous product lines, such as Perkins and John Deere off-highway engines, and golf and turf equipment. In April of 2002, we moved our headquarters from Swan Island in Portland to a new state-of-the-art facility in Ridgefield, Washington.
  • 2002 – Pacific again changed the company name to Pacific Power Products (PPP) to better reflect the expanding line of products and services we offers.
  • 2000’s – Over the decades, Pacific has branched out to serve not only the commercial trucking industry, but also off-highway equipment, power generation, and power solutions for markets such as agriculture, logging, marine, construction, mining, and military applications. We attribute our success and growth to long-standing relationships with valued customers and committed suppliers.
  • 2014 – With the gradual expansion and progressive addition of diverse product lines in mind, Pacific’s leadership team announced another name change to Pacific Power Group in April of 2014. This latest change was yet again in response to the need to better reflect the wide range of our business lines and services.
  • 2015 – Pacific Power Group moves its’ headquarters from Ridgefield, WA to Vancouver, WA to bring our corporate team together in a central location. Our Power Generation division and service facilities remain in Ridgefield along with our Perkins Pacific division.
