When it comes to electric motors, rewinding and repairing them is often the more cost-effective and time-efficient solution rather than purchasing a brand-new motor. Not only can rewinding and repairing electric motors extend the life of your equipment, but it can also save you money in the long run. In this blog post, we’ll explore why rewinding and repairing electric motors is better than buying a new one.


Rewinding an electric motor can often work out to be cheaper than purchasing a new one. It not only reduces your expenses but also helps you avoid the hassle of returning faulty motors or having to source a replacement. Furthermore, it saves energy as the amount of power needed to rewind the motor is less than that of manufacturing a new one. In addition, when you refurbish or repair an electric motor, you are re-using some of the same materials that went into manufacturing the original product – so it helps reduce unnecessary waste and does its bit for the environment. All in all, rewinding and repairing electric motors can result in significant savings in terms of cost, energy, and materials.

This means businesses can save time, money, and energy by refurbishing or re-using old electric motors, instead of buying new ones.

Saves on Energy

One of the primary benefits of refurbishing an electric motor is that it saves energy. Refurbishing an electric motor to its original specification can help increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption. This can save a company money on its energy bills and help them become more environmentally conscious. It also reduces their overall environmental footprint by reducing the need for new motors and the energy needed to produce them. Every motor that has undergone a full rewind and repair is carefully tested by the Gibbons workshop engineers before delivery to the customer.

Environmentally Friendly

The throwaway culture has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially when it comes to electric motors. Instead of taking the time to repair and rewind electric motors, many consumers simply discard them and buy new motors. However, this practice is not only expensive and wasteful, but it is also very damaging to the environment. By rewinding and repairing an electric motor, you can help reduce the environmental impact of your business. Rewinding and repairing a motor uses far fewer materials than buying a new one and helps to reduce energy consumption. Furthermore, refurbished motors often last longer than their new counterparts and are much more efficient. In conclusion, rewinding and repairing an electric motor is a great way to do your part for the environment while still getting a quality product.
