FLANDERS manufacturing innovations

Over the course of 65+ years troubleshooting, repairing, rebuilding, and upgrading heavy industrial motors for marine and other applications, we’ve developed a comprehensive series of innovations, ranging from our own resin-rich Class H+ (220℃) insulation materials to proprietary processes for wet winding field coils.

These innovations, specialization in short-run manufacturing, and our ability to manufacture to tighter tolerances than industry standards set FLANDERS apart.

So if you’re looking to develop a higher-performance, large-scale custom marine power system, we’re your partner.

DC to AC retrofits

One of the highest-ROI upgrades you can make

Upgrading from DC to AC is an exceptional way to get more from machines you already own:

  • More power
  • Better control
  • Less maintenance
  • Longer life

We are absolute experts in DC to AC retrofits—across industries—and for shipping and port operations we frequently renew cranes and hoists by upgrading them to AC.

Motor Exchange Program

A ship that isn’t working isn’t earning.

That’s why our Motor Exchange Program has such value for marine operations.

When you enroll in the program, we’ll keep designated backup motors on hand for you, ready for immediate delivery and installation when one of your critical motors needs in-shop repairs.

That way you’re up and running while we refurbish the original motor to service-ready condition as your new spare.
