Power backup manufacturer names new CEO


Myers Emergency Power Systems, a designer and manufacturer of backup power systems in Hanover Township, Northampton County, has named John Daly as its new CEO

Daly brings 26 years of industry management experience to the company, according to Myers.

He has worked in the commercial and industrial lighting markets including in senior executive-level positions at a number of major companies such as GE Lighting, Philips, Lightech and CREE.

He also successfully opened and oversaw R&D Lighting and Controls lighting agency. Prior to joining Myers, Daly served as the vice president of sales for NICOR Lighting.

Daly said he was excited about his new endeavor.

“As the industry continues to move towards sustainable LED solutions, the high quality and substantial long-term savings of Myers EPS’ solutions, particularly its emergency lighting inverters and mini inverters, is driving rapid market adoption rates as the emergency lighting solution of choice,” he said.

In July, Myers Emergency Power Systems was acquired by Graham Partners, a private investment firm targeting industrial technology and advanced manufacturing companies.

Myers has around 80 employees.
