about-sorensen-systems
 

Sorensen Systems was originally founded as the engineering and system design entity of The Hope Group following its acquisition of the Sorensen Governor brand in 1985. Today, the Sorensen Systems operates as an engineering and fabrication house specializing in motion-control systems for the hydropower generation, water and waste water industries. Its staff of design engineers, technicians and project managers operates from its 60,000 square foot office and manufacturing location in Northborough, MA.

Association with Parker

Sorensen Systems, is affiliated with Parker through its connection to The Hope Group, an authorized distributor of Parker Hannifin; and for the past 55 years has been a leading provider of fluid power and fluid connector components and sub-systems for the industrial OEM and MRO marketplace in the six New England states. It operates eight Parker Stores, with three in Maine, two in Massachusetts, and one each in New Hampshire, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Sorensen Governor Brand

Sorensen Systems was founded in 1985 with the acquisition of the Sorensen Governor brand and immediately became focused on the hydroelectric power industry in New England and for certain applications throughout the world. Today, with representation in the US and Canada, the company continues its expansion into the power generation marketplace. The Sorensen Governor brand is well known throughout the world and its products serve the needs of water and waste water facilities.

Power Generation Market

Sorensen System's primary direct market penetration has been in the hydroelectric power plant market with new installation, refurbishment and station automation as its prime opportunity. With nearly 200 major power plants in New England, the combustion turbine, combined cycle, fossil fuel and nuclear power plants represent an important marketplace for Sorensen Systems. Additionally, it has focused on the engineered system requirements of the emerging motion and control requirements in the semiconductor, pulp & paper, marine, life science, defense and thermal power generation industries.

System Solutions Philosophy

Sorensen Systems has an exclusive focus on system design/build. It does not inventory parts, replace or repair components or otherwise operate in the MRO role, which is handled by its associated company, The Hope Group. Rather, it serves as a provider of design/build services to The Hope Group as needed and takes it services directly to the market for the thermal and hydro power generation market, water and waste water distribution market.
