“We are excited to complete the transaction and welcome the team to the FLANDERS family,” said Allen Patterson, COO of FLANDERS. “Expansion into this sector of Canada allows us the opportunity to better serve our customers in the oil sands with AC motor repair, wheel motor repair, and shovel motor exchange. We look forward to better serving our partners in Canada.”

The FLANDERS Fort McMurray Regional Service Center will be led by Ken Unruh. Unruh has over 30 years of electric motors experience, from repair to motor design, with Westinghouse Canada. The Fort McMurray Regional Service Center is fully-equipped and will immediately employ six locally.

“Our new presence in Fort McMurray allows us to service customers with motor repairs up to 2500 horse power. This also opens the market access to FLANDERS’ repair network of 9 locations in the US with a total of 15 around the globe. Our Midwest Regional Service Center possesses the capability to execute repairs on the largest motor repairs in the industry,” said Unruh.
