The entire operation of Enginuity Power Systems is here in the United States – based outside of Washington, DC in Alexandria, VA. Last March, to support the manufacturing research and development, we acquired Michigan-based and world-renown engine builder Katech Inc. as part of a strategy to speed the commercialization of its innovative micro-Combined Heat and Power (mCHP) product, the E|ONE.
The E|ONE replaces the standard water heater with a fully integrated system that provides a home with all electric power and space and water heating requirements – transforming it into an ultra-energy-efficient ‘smart home’. The E|ONE was awarded ‘Best in Show’, ‘Best Home Technology Product’ and ‘Best Energy Efficient Product’ at the 2020 International Builders Show in Las Vegas.
At the heart of E|ONE is a small internal combustion engine that runs quietly and efficiently on multiple fuels. Katech Engineering has been working on the latest generation of the engine, and on the mCHP assembly, which are critical steps toward commercialization.
“We believe Katech’s world-class engine design and test capabilities, along with its on-site high-performance engine and parts manufacturing resources, will significantly shorten the E|ONE’s time-to-market,” said Jacques Beaudry-Losique, President of Enginuity Power Systems. “Our truly innovative engine is in the right hands at the right time.”
Katech will continue to operate its established businesses, which includes motorsports, vehicle aftermarket, and corporate accounts, and this will allow Enginuity to tap new opportunities in the transportation sector.
Katech recently signed a contract to supply several thousand US made temperature-scan stands to a firm providing scanners to hospitals, hotels, government agencies and universities to support the COVID-19 pandemic effort. It also recently expanded its presence in the alternative fuel and marine engine markets. Katech is currently launching an LPG offering and also exploring the high performance electrical vehicle (EV) market with a potential partner.
