After nearly 25 yr in the motor control business, Addison Electric has expanded its product offering to include AC motors. The Chicago-based DC motor distributor recently teamed with Emerson Motor Technologies to sell the latter’s cast iron, aluminum, and rolled steel TEFC, NEMA premium, close coupled pump, vector duty, energy-efficient open drip proof, and washdown AC motors.

Addison Electric had sold Emerson’s DC motors in the past, so the migration to AC motors seemed like a natural progression to Brian Wolek, Emerson sales manager. “They are one of the largest DC motor distributors in the United States, so when they placed a significant order for our AC motors, after offering our DC motors for so many years, we were very pleased,” he said.
