AP4 Group – Full-Service Heavy-Duty & Aeroderivative Industrial Gas Turbine Maintenance Provider.

Boynton Beach, FL.  December 31, 2020 – Today AP&M Holdings, LLC (AP&M) announced they have acquired Turbine Controls & Excitation Group (TC&E).  TC&E is a global, full-service Power Generation Controls and Excitation company specializing in Gas Turbine, Steam Turbine, and Generator Control systems.  TC&E will merge with AP&M’s aeroderivative service team to form the AP4 Services division led by TC&E’s John Downing.

Now with one call to AP4 Services, a customer can coordinate the full range of field services, acquire parts & component repairs of their aeroderivative and heavy-duty gas turbine generator and steam turbine power plants.  This very experienced service team expands the company’s technical service offering and field service solutions.  Both AP&M and TC&E customers will experience enhanced access to technical services, product upgrades, spare parts, and component repairs.

“It’s exciting to expand our support to the power generation and oil & gas industries through integration of Parts, Component Repair and Field Services.  Building on our recent aeroderivative field services expansion, the TC&E acquisition was a natural fit for our company and enhances the strengths of both organizations” said Greg Young, Chief Executive Officer, AP&M.


John Downing, TC&E CEO, agrees that the marriage of these two businesses is perfect.  “TC&E had been looking at options to grow further into Aeroderivative services, so what could be better than combining a great parts company with a great services company?”  He further added, “both companies have built trusted reputations of providing reliability, efficiency, affordability, through longevity. By joining forces, we’ve developed a unique integrated solution to support Aeroderivative & Heavy-duty Frame Gas Turbines, Steam Turbines, Generators, Exciters, LCI’s, BOP and ancillary systems. “
