Electric Motor Replacement
As facilities age and motor design standards change, many operations managers struggle to find replacement units that will fit into the limitations of an older facility and still meet modern production requirements.  At Leppert-Nutmeg, we build modern industrial electric motors in a number of ways:

  • Build electric motors based on original design, but with upgrades that handle modern day HP demands
  • Upgrade older units with contemporary capabilities
  • Utilize our network of suppliers to find surplus motors fulfill requirements
  • Order motors in specific voltages per the customer’s request
