FLANDERS Announces Acquisition of Western Engineered Solutions

December 4th, 2014

EVANSVILLE, Indiana – Today FLANDERS announces its acquisition of Western Engineered Solutions (WES), a company specializing in solutions for electric machines for the mining, oil & gas, construction, railroad, and power generating industries. The facility was started in 1980 as a Westinghouse service center. “WES will complement our regional service center structure,” says FLANDERS Chief Operating Officer Allen Patterson, “and will help FLANDERS continue its growth as a complete solution provider in the numerous industries we serve. Furthermore, we feel that this acquisition is beneficial to all of our employees because it allows FLANDERS to grow our presence in North Dakota through serving WES’ solid customer base and expanding our footprint in the repair market.”

Effective January 1, 2015, WES will become the Western-Bismarck Regional Service Center. Other Regional Service Centers owned by FLANDERS are located in Evansville, IN; Marion, IL; Lakeland, FL; Longview, TX; Tucson, AZ; Casper, WY; Edmonton, Canada; Antofagasta, Chile; Mpumalanga, South Africa; and Brisbane, Australia.

As part of this acquisition, WES leaders including Gary Owen, current WES owner, Don Sabo, shop manager, and Remy Messer, who serves as lead over the machine shop and mechanical field work, along with all eighteen current employees, will remain onboard as FLANDERS employees. Sabo and Messer will continue to serve as points of contact for customers and will work together with FLANDERS leadership to ensure a smooth transition from WES to the Western-Bismarck Regional Service Center.
“By combining resources, WES and FLANDERS will bring an even higher level of customer service to the companies we work with every day. Our customers remain our highest priority, and we are pleased that this acquisition means additional strengths and technical resources will be made available to our customers,” says Owen.

The Western-Bismarck Regional Service Center will be supported with resources from its corporate headquarters in Evansville, Indiana. A family-owned company for three generations, FLANDERS was founded in 1947 as a two man electric motor repair shop. FLANDERS has built its reputation worldwide on manufacturing, repair, and field service expertise and on uncompromising customer service.

The Western-Bismarck Regional Service Center is located at 1911 Revere Drive in Bismarck, North Dakota.
