July 15, 2015, Tavistock, Ont. – Chris McGregor is the new president of Sommers Motor Generator Sales Ltd., a leading manufacturer of custom generators.

The appointment follows McGregor’s purchase of controlling interest in the business in April of this year.

Wes and Kay Sommers founded Sommers Motor Generator Sales Ltd. in 1936, helping to bring electrical service and equipment to rural Ontario and the Maritime region. The company has remained in the family since that time, emerging as “Canada’s powerhouse in generator systems.”


McGregor joined the Sommers organization in 1998 and he has served as general manager since 2008.

Patrick Sommers, representing the third generation in the family business, will remain with the service department.

McGregor forecasts a number of significant announcements to follow in the near future.

“We have had several initiatives under way in product and service development recently. As our organizational changes settle in, you can expect to see these come to fruition.”


The company has been a trusted name in generating, delivering and applying electrical power for over 75 years. Based in Tavistock, Ontario, Sommers also operates sales and service locations in Lucknow, Ontario, and Dieppe, New Brunswick.
