Storm Lake Computer Shop has been acquired by Power Solutions of Alta, which will occupy the building at 1221 Lake Ave beginning August 1 under the Power Solutions name.
Drew Kollasch made the announcement at a Storm Lake United Coffee held Wednesday morning at The Storm Lake Computer Shop.
Kollasch opened the business in 2010 and will continue as an employee of Power Solutions.
“We look forward to building the brand and the business that Drew has built,” said Derek Wall of Power Solutions.
Power Solutions specializes in complete installation and service of electrical systems in commercial, agricultural and residential applications.
They installed Programmable Logic Controls, which in Wall’s words, “make computers talk to electrical systems.”
Previously, Power Solutions acquired Alta’s Pro Elect, a fire alarm, phone system and security system vendor. “Drew will join that team,” said Wall.
The new Power Solutions business in Storm Lake won’t sell or repair computers like The Storm Lake Computer Shop does. Network and security services will continue however.
“Thank you to Drew and The Storm Lake Computer Shop team for 10 years of business in Storm Lake and we look forward to welcoming Power Solutions to the SLU team,” said SLU Director Breanna Horsey.
