Founded in 1959, the company soon began producing portable generators for Sears, Roebuck and Co. under the Craftsman brand.
During the 1970s, Generac expanded its offerings in the portable and recreational vehicle markets, and in the 1980s the company entered the commercial and industrial markets with its backup power generation systems. In 1989, Generac introduced the first gaseous-fueled automatic home standby system.
In 1998, Generac sold its portable products division to the Beacon group, a private equity firm, who later sold it to Briggs & Stratton Corporation. Upon expiration of a non-compete agreement related to the sale in 2007, Generac re-entered the portable generator market in 2008.
In late 2006, Generac was purchased by CCMP Capital of New York. In 2009 CCMP took a write-off, described as a non-cash goodwill and trade name impairment charge, of $583.5 million against their purchase of Generac. Aaron Jagdfeld was appointed president and chief executive officer in September, 2008 and is the current CEO.
