August 10, 2010, Albany NY -- MSE Power Systems Inc (“MSE”) headquartered in Albany, NY announced today a company name change to CG Power Solutions USA Inc.

In October, 2008, MSE was acquired by Crompton Greaves Ltd. (CG), a global leader in power transmission and distribution headquartered in India. MSE's name change was a planned phase of this acquisition. CG Power Solutions USA, Inc. will remain a US-based entity. There will be no changes in management, quality of services, or personnel providing these services.
