ESSCO is a distributor for Toshiba motors and drives, Marathon motors, and ABB drives and controls. The assets of ESSCO were acquired from Enerphase Industrial Solutions, Inc., of which ESSCO was a division.
Shelton comments, “We are pleased to announce that Tencarva, our long time account and largest customer for the past several years, has purchased the assets of the ESSCO Division. This is an exciting time for those of us at ESSCO. We become part of one of the largest industrial distributors in the country.”
Shelton continues, “We believe the combination of our electrical knowledge and Tencarva s resources will provide great benefits to our customers and manufacturers. Becoming a part of Tencarva will also provide our employees with a great deal of security in these tough economic times.”
He points out, “The culture at Tencarva mirrors that of ESSCO. I know this is the best fit for our people. We all are excited about the future. Tencarva is a great company, and we are proud to be a part of it.”
Lee explains, “ESSCO has been an important supplier for Tencarva for years. Most of the motors that Tencarva’s team mounts on pump packages built in Greensboro come from ESSCO.

Lee emphasizes, “We welcome the ESSCO employees to the Tencarva family, and believe they will be an excellent addition to Tencarva as they help create many avenues for growth.”
