    FLANDERS is a full-service industry partner offering repairs, rebuilds, and upgrades for electric rotating equipment of all kinds, from low horsepower NEMA-frame motors to 10,000 horsepower mill motors to chemical-duty pipeline motors.


    We can fix any motor that comes into the shop.

    Industrial motor repair has been at the core of our business since the 1940’s, and we can repair any make and model of electric power system:

    • ABB: Baldor/Reliance
    • Allis-Chalmers
    • GE
    • Hyundai
    • Siemens
    • TECO-Westinghouse
    • TMEIC
    • Toshiba
    • US Motors
    • VEM
    • WEG
    • FLANDERS (of course)
    • And any other brand

    Whatever your equipment needs, we can handle it all in-house

    • Commutator turning and undercutting
    • Rewinding
    • Armature repairs
    • Cryogenic cleaning
    • Electrical system fixes or rebuilds
    • Bearing replacement
    • Custom manufacturing replacement parts

    Plus, we offer comprehensive field services as well.

    Documenting your motor’s repair history

    We keep thorough records on each repair job, giving you peace of mind and retaining the information you need for future reference.


    Drop-in replacements that increase motor performance

    We design, engineer, custom manufacture, and install application-specific drop-in motor replacements that increase your motor's power, performance, and lifespan. Every unit we manufacture or upgrade meets or exceeds machine OEM specifications.

    DC to AC upgrades

    If you are ready to take motor and machine performance to the next level, we also offer DC to AC motor conversions that provide drop-in replacement solutions.

    State-of-the-art testing

    Among our many electric motor test capabilities, we have a high-powered in-house dynamometer for testing motors up to 13.2 kV at 60 Hz or 50 Hz operation. To get you up and running faster, we fine-tune commutation and analyze other motor performance characteristics before any unit leaves the shop, so there is less to adjust when we install the motor.


    Electrical rebuilds

    For motors, drives, or full machines

    For any type of heavy industrial machine or subsystem—from ‘run of the mill’ dragline hoist motors to 7,000 horsepower reversing mill motors to entire bucket wheel excavators—FLANDERS rebuilds give your operation optimum productivity, increased safety, and exceptional reliability.

    Motor overhauls

    Restoring motors to as-new status

    In the case of motor damage considered non-economically repairable, we can build you a custom motor—of any size and duty—from the ground up, or we can provide a distribution motor that meets your specifications.
