FLANDERS acquired Alabama Electric Motor Services, located in Sheffield, Alabama, on December 20, 2017. Alabama Electric Motor Services, now FLANDERS Shoals Regional Service Center (RSC), is an electric motor shop specializing in electric motor repair up 10 tons, testing and diagnostics, and field service, including drive and PLC troubleshooting. With a strong customer base in the aluminum industry, this acquisition supports FLANDERS’ strategic growth into the aluminum market.
“The Alabama facility is a great fit with FLANDERS’ electric motor repair and systems integration business and our core values,” said Allen Patterson, FLANDERS’ COO. “This acquisition extends our reach into this region by continuing to provide excellent and additional services to existing customers, as well as growing relationships with new customers.”
The facility’s 18 employees and equipment are valuable additions to FLANDERS’ existing business. Through this acquisition, FLANDERS will be able to serve this region with additional capabilities including new motor manufacturing, large motor repair (up to 110 tons), and additional systems integration services.
