When it comes to selecting the best electric motor for the job, we often suggest Baldor Electric motors. They are very popular among our clients for several reasons.

Baldor: A Brief History

The Baldor Company dates back to 1920 in St. Louis, Missouri. However, the emergence of their electric motors predates this time. The story begins in 1904 with the Lincoln Electric Manufacturing Co. (Lincoln Electric Motor Works). In 1909, after the death of the original partners, the company became the Reliance Electric and Engineering Company. During this period of time, they were perfecting their electric motors.

Rockwell Automation took over in 1994, however, in 2007, Baldor and Rockwell arrived at a mutually beneficial arrangement with Baldor purchasing the Reliance Electric and Dodge product brands. ABB Ltd. of Switzerland then took over Baldor, the result being advantageous not only to the companies but also for the consumers and distributors. We can now offer you everything the company has to offer – including Baldor electric motors.
