To our valued suppliers, customers, and industry partners:

As you recall from previous communications, in November 2020 Load Banks Direct was acquired by Trystar, LLC (Faribault, MN). Since then, we have continued integrating our business with Trystar and have relocated our manufacturing operations to Faribault.

Trystar has spent many years building a strong brand through exceptional product design, amazing engineering, and strong customer relationships. And as you already know, so has Load Banks Direct!

Our Load Bank products are 100% Engineered and Made in the USA.

As a privately owned company, we care more about our customers than shareholders. We are passionate about the load bank market and strive to offer the best solution every time!
