Power Ignition was founded in 1974 to provide ignition related support to natural gas compression operations in Alberta, Canada.

Spartan Controls (Alberta, CA Emerson LBP) acquired Power Ignition in 2003 forming Power Ignition and Controls as a wholly owned subsidiary of Spartan Controls.

Equipment & Controls, Inc. (PA, OH, WV & MD Emerson LBP) and Spartan Controls formed a joint venture creating PIC Appalachia in late 2011. Primary focus is natural gas operations in the Appalachian Basin.
