Our scale advantage:

Our value proposition is to leverage the virtual marketplace we created in the engineering consulting and construction field. Our specific concentration of connections and relationships in the power generation and power delivery industry gives us an advantage. This concept of scale advantage is well known in the retail commercial real estate industry. This advantage exists to an even greater degree in the virtual online world. We will now leverage and increase this advantage for our existing clients and for every new client that comes aboard.

We can grow your company’s revenue by effectively using our virtual market place scale advantage and social media marketing know-how to help your company win new work, enhancing your corporate or personal image or through business acquisitions and business monetization and exit strategies.

What we do:

TransAct-q is a power generation and power delivery business brokerage, multimedia marketer and consultant. We strive to grow market share for our clients through business acquisition, confidential business exit and monetization strategies, and business development.  We accomplish market share growth by leveraging our virtual marketplace scale advantage in the power generation and power delivery industries and through the effective use of available multimedia tools, business acumen, and hard work.

Meet the team:

TransAct-q will fulfill this need in the power generation and power delivery industry.
