About Us

The #1 Large Electric Motor Specialist 


East Coast Electrical Equipment Company​ opened its doors for the first time 1968, here in Youngsville, North Carolina. Since then, we’ve proudly grown from a humble family business to a company recognized the world over for our extensive electric motor selection. We offer new, used, rebuilt, and remanufactured electric motors and controls to both domestic and international clients of all sizes.

We know that the key to keeping our customers coming back is carrying the specific motors they require, which is why we house the largest inventory of A.C. and D.C. electric motors in the United States. When browsing our catalog of electric motors and electric motor controls ranging from 150 to 22,000 HP in AC Squirrel Cage motors, DC Motors, AC Vertical Motors, AC Synchronous Motors, Full Voltage Starters, Reduced Voltage Starters, Variable Frequency Drives, and Wound Rotor Motors, you’ll quickly realize there’s not a motor or electric motor control that we can’t pair you with for the lowest price available, as well as properly applied.


We at East Coast Electrical Equipment Company​ also know that what sets us above our competition comes down to one thing: our proven track record of going above and beyond for our customers. We’re happy to offer the guidance and expertise or our staff both during and after a sale. Our sales engineers boast a combined 140 years of experience in electric motors and control application and support - so you know you’re in good hands. Not only is our support unparalleled, but so is our speed. That’s why we minimize our clients’ exposure to production downtime by providing them with our industry-leading, 24-hour, coast-to-coast delivery.

Though our headquarters are here in North Carolina, we service customers far beyond our home base. We maintain working relationships with customers all throughout North America, Latin America, and South America, while also working to meet the needs of our clients in Europe and the Middle East. In fact, our commitment to customer satisfaction serves as one of the many reasons we’ve been the choice supplier of electric motors and controls to internationally renowned clients such as ​Proctor and Gamble​, ​Exelon​, and ​International Paper.
