Researching Engine Production and Forecast Data Since 1976

Power Systems Research was incorporated in 1976 in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, USA, and quickly developed a unique position in the consulting industry. Power Systems Research was the first market research company to focus on the specific needs of the engine and engine component industries.

The initial objective of the company was to provide engine manufacturers with market studies and accurate statistics of engine sales. This led to the development of the first database of North American engine sales. Today, Power Systems Research offers five distinct databases—EnginLink™, OE Link™, CV Link™, MarineLink™, and PartsLink™ — that constitute the most comprehensive source of market information for the engine, engine component, engine parts aftermarket and OEM equipment industries. 

EnginLink™ is the definitive source of global IC engine production, forecast and specification data.

OE Link™ is the definitive source of global original equipment manufacturer (OEM) production and forecast data.

CV Link™ is a specialty database that provides OEM and vehicle details, plus production, forecast and specification data for on-highway commercial vehicles.

PartsLink™ is a comprehensive resource providing in-service population data for engine powered vehicles and equipment.

MarineLink™ is the single source of boat-builder production, engine installation, and forecast data.

The growing demand for information on engines and power component markets resulted in the company expanding its services to include consulting efforts and specialized industry reports. Increased demand for services in Asia and Europe led to the opening of offices in Tokyo in 1982 and Brussels in 1984. Today, Power Systems Research also has operations in Beijing, Moscow, India, the Middle East and Campinas, Brazil.

Over the years, Power Systems Research has conducted more than 3,100 diverse, yet targeted studies for many of the world's leading corporations.

As more and more clients were seeking primary research studies, the company purchased Compass International and its telephone call center operation in 1992. This addition enables Power Systems Research to offer full service market research including in-house interviewing and focus group capabilities.

Throughout the company's history, a commitment to customer service has led to strong and lasting partnerships. The strength of our client relationship is built upon our ability to provide high quality research results with timely customer support. PSR
