This Is Our Story

Hamilton Power Solutions is Headquartered in the Pacific Northwest, on the Northeast side of Portland, OR with two additional locations in the Midwest and Southwest. We were founded in 1954 by Charles Hamilton. In 2020, Hamilton Engine was acquired by Palmer Johnson Enterprises yet remains independently operated.

In 2022 Hamilton Engine Sales merged operations with Trident Engineered Solutions to become Hamilton Power Solutions. The name change was made to better reflect the total scope of Hamilton’s prime-mover agnostic, complete drivetrain solutions strategy. With the infusion of the engineering team at Trident and distributor-level access to a variety of drivetrain components, Hamilton Power Solutions provides comprehensive sales, service, & engineering support at a level unmatched by our peers in the industry.
