Blue Star Power Systems: A History of Innovation in Power Generation

Blue Star Power Systems Inc. is a leading American Made manufacturer of diesel and gaseous-driven generator sets ranging from 20 to 2000 kWe. The company was founded in 2004 as a refurbishing company of existing power systems but has since grown to offer its own full and complete product line. The company's headquarters are located in North Mankato, MN, and it has a network of distributors strategically located in the U.S. and Canadian markets.

Early Years

Blue Star Power Systems was founded in 2004 by Doug Fahrforth (CFO) in his garage. His initial focus was on refurbishing used generator sets. Then in 2006, the company started selling and marketing its products to the agricultural community. In 2008, Bruce Prange (President) joined the company, bringing with him a wealth of experience in the power generation industry. The two men had a combined experience of over 30 years in the power generation industry, and they saw an opportunity to provide a better solution for customers who needed reliable and affordable power.

Blue Star was able to capitalize on the opportunity and began to develop its own line of generator sets. By building a strong team and developing a high-quality product line, the company quickly grew. As a result, in 2019, operations moved to a new facility in North Mankato, MN. Their innovative products and services gained a reputation in the industry, and Blue Star began to expand its product line and distribution network.

Present Day

As a result of its commitment to innovation and customer service, Blue Star has become a leading manufacturer of generator sets. The company's products are used by a wide range of customers, including farms, businesses, and government agencies. One of the things that sets Blue Star apart from its competitors is its focus on customer service. The company's employees are highly trained, experienced, and dedicated to providing customers with the support they need. Blue Star also offers a wide range of services, including installation, maintenance, and repair.

Blue Star Power Systems is a company with a rich history of innovation in power generation and well-positioned for continued growth in the years to come. We here at Alterra are excited about this new partnership and look forward to providing our customers with the most comprehensive and innovative power system solutions available.
