Compu-Power, Inc., a privately held corporation, was founded in 1979 as a total solution information technology company. Targeting various distribution and supply chain businesses, the company provided a full spectrum of products and services including software, hardware and installation, training, custom programming and on-going support services.

From 1981 to 1989 Compu-Power grew to gain a national presence and client base by marketing its products through Electronic Data Systems (EDS), a national network of forty-five computer dealers, and with the recommendation of nationally recognized accounting and consulting firms such as Grant Thornton and Price Waterhouse.

In 1989 Compu-Power (then GP Systems) merged with Laventhol & Horwath (L&H), then the nation’s seventh largest accounting and consulting firm. Operating as a unit within L&H, yet retaining ownership of its software, the business flourished nationally, automating tire dealerships, lumber yards, paper products dealers and other distribution businesses. Following the separation from Laventhol & Horwath in November 1990, Compu-Power, Inc. went back into business with its software and expanded client base intact.

Compu-Power has been recognized since 1991 as an IBM Business Partner and Solution Developer.

In 1993 the company sharpened its focus on the needs of the tire industry, which was beginning to see significant consolidation and growth. Compu-Power then extended its product line by developing powerful manufacturing software, integrated with its distribution software, to meet the needs of the tire retreading industry.

In 2001, the company began a business relationship with Intermec Technologies Corporation as a Premier Solutions Partner. And, in 2003, Intermec recognized Compu-Power as an Honors Partner. Compu-Power, Inc. combined its system integration, software development and supply chain expertise with Intermec’s leading-edge radio frequency identification (RFID), mobile computing and wireless technologies to extend its reach into manufacturing and assembly industries while continuing to serve its traditional distribution clients.
