The dying art of electric motor rewinds

Gibbons Engineering Group has offered an electric motor rewinds service since its inception in 1969. At that time, the price of a new motor meant that a rewind was the only option for many businesses. Since then, reduced manufacturing costs have seen motors become cheaper and rendered rewinds less necessary. Mass production has made repairing any device – from televisions to toasters – a dying art, and electric motors are no exception.

Gibbons is proud to be among the remaining companies providing motor rewinds and repairs – our highly-skilled engineers are fully trained and we can offer a complete service, including:

  • On-site repairs
  • 24-hour call-out service
  • 12-month warranty on repairs
  • Removal from site, repair and reinstallation to site
  • Free collection/delivery within a 50-mile radius
  • Quotations or estimations on price and delivery times
  • Emergency same-day/next-day service wherever possible.

Even if you’re confident carrying out mechanicals repairs, a motor rewind really is a job for the professionals. Once a coil has been removed, it’s impossible to replace it in its original state so a rewind should only be undertaken by a skilled, experienced professional.

For larger motors, a rewind can be as much as 40% cheaper than replacement, even with emergency call-out charges taken into account. Plus, the delivery time on specialist motors can be several months, whereas Gibbons can have yours rewound and back in service in a fraction of the time.
