Industry Leaders for Sales, Service & Repair of Electric Motors, Controls & Drives
Locally owned and operated in Waite Park, Minnesota, we are a nationally recognized leader when it comes to all things related to electric motors.


Our History

Initially established in 1969 by Dick and Patricia Lewis, our company was formally founded as Lewis Motor Repair in 1973. At that time our company provided electric motor repair services and operated out of its original shop in St. Cloud, MN.

In 1989 we relocated to our current location at 3015 4th Street South in Waite Park, MN. Some eight years later, in 1997, John Carlson and Don Winkels took over ownership of the business. The pair still own and operate the company today. They continue to expand upon our company's product and service offerings, keeping up-to-date with industry changes and electric motor advancements.

Our Facility

Throughout the years, facility expansions and equipment upgrades have transformed our Waite Park location into a modern commercial service center. We can accommodate over-sized jobs and perform high caliber repairs.

  • 1999 - A high service bay was added to our existing repair shop, allowing for large apparatus repairs.
  • 2000 - A new administration, training, and warehouse facility was constructed on the property.
  • 2010 - We added a full machine shop to compliment the motor and apparatus services already offered.
  • Today - Our electric motor remanufacturing, repair, and sales facility totals 21,700 square feet.
