You have a choice when it comes to motor maintenance and repair. You can take your equipment to someone who will take care of it, or you can take it to someone who will take the time to do it right. We don’t take shortcuts. We understand you don’t have time to lose. We may not be the cheapest. We test and re-test and test again. We get it right the first time, and we aren’t satisfied until you are.

Our Field Service Technicians are highly qualified and have extensive knowledge of VFDs, PLCs, Vibration Testing, Thermography, and Alignment. Many of our Technical Staff have been with the company for more than 20 years. Our Service Technicians are on call 24/7/365.
