The Latest News from East Coast Electrical Equipment Co.

Hello everyone, 

We hope you’re doing well and have been enjoying the start of your summer so far! There were a lot of fun traditions we were all forced to miss out on last year and we are excited at the prospect of making up for lost time over the next few months. We’ve been busier than ever here at East Coast Electrical Equipment Company. With the influx of commerce nationwide and the rapid development of growing areas like our own Triangle region here in North Carolina, business is booming. In fact, we’ve just finished pouring the pad for a brand new building at our headquarters! We’re proud to announce that we’re breaking ground on a new 12,000 sq ft facility that will exclusively house all brand new GE and Siemens motors. We look forward to sharing more about this project as it continues to be built.

The primary reason we’re reaching out to you today, however, is to let you know about something very important going on in the electric motor industry. Though our new facility will be a top-of-the-line space for housing new motors, we don’t advise you to wait until it’s complete to make your next motor purchase. That’s because we have a number of reasons to believe that right now is the best time to purchase an electric motor. 

You’ve likely read a great deal in the news lately about the return of inflation. Consumer prices have ascended more than 4% from where they were a year ago, which is the largest increase in more than a decade. The United States typically sees average price increases of 2.5% annually, and we’ve been growing at about that pace since 1986. Beyond the obvious interruptions we’ve had in the supply chain due to Covid-19, there are a number of other factors causing this new jump, including higher labor costs, higher freight costs, higher transportation demand, port delays, increased demand in some products, higher commodity prices, and shortages in a wide number of resources including gasoline, lumber, and shipping containers, which all inadvertently influence the availability of many consumer goods. It’s a perfect storm.

One shortage that directly affects our industry is the current copper shortage. Copper is a large component of many electric motors due to its high electrical conductivity. It enhances the electrical energy efficiency of a motor and is commonly used in coil windings, bearings, collectors, brushes, and connectors of many electric motors. Recently, Copper hit an all-time high with a rapid price increase of 27% in 2021. This surge has been caused in part by the growing focus on renewable energy and the production of more electric motors and equipment. While that’s a great thing for the planet and electric motor companies, the growing demand for this resource has caused electric motors to be more expensive— a trend we predict will continue in the coming years.

With the large number of triggering factors at play, we have no cause to believe that inflation rates will return to normal anytime soon. Beyond that, with the demand for copper specifically, we believe that the cost of electric motors will only continue to increase with or without a stable inflation rate. Now is the time to buy. Prices of both new and rebuilt electric motors have already increased and are on a path to keep rising. If you foresee an electric motor purchase in the near future, we strongly urge you to make that purchase as soon as possible. Buying an electric motor today could very likely mean money in the bank for you tomorrow.

Whether you’re looking for a solid investment for your business or anticipate a future purchase that you could be saving money on now, we’re here to help you with your electric motor needs. Reach out to us today with any questions you may have or to learn more about our extensive inventory of new and used electric motors from the best brand names in the industry!

Hello everyone,

We hope you’ve had a smooth start to this year, so far. As we navigate the tail end of wintertime and look forward to the future, we hope you’ve not lost sight of all there is to appreciate about being present during this time in history and the many ways our society is learning and growing from all that we’ve been through. We have achieved so much and if the past is any indication, we will get to the other side of these current challenges we face as a stronger and more unified people. A lot may have changed over the past year, but there are many things we can all still rely on: the resilience of the human spirit, the synchronous ebbs and flows of nature, the marvels that have been produced by human ingenuity, and the reliability of a quality-made product. 

Among the many feats we as humans have achieved, we believe the high-level engineering found in industrial motors is one of the bright spots. Consider all of the remarkable ways electric motors have advanced our society over the past hundred years. AC motors alone have given us the ability to make air conditioners, irrigation pumps, transportation equipment, and conveyor systems. Just think of all the ways your life is bettered by those innovations! AC motors are used for a wide range of applications due to their flexibility, efficiency, and operation. 

We at East Coast Electrical Equipment Company have an extensive selection of new and rebuilt AC motors. In fact, we’re the largest stocking distributor in the nation for AC Medium Voltage motors by GE, as well as the exclusive DC motor stocking distributor for GE, a company that has been setting the standard in manufacturing rotating machines for over 125 years. Not only does GE offer quality workmanship but they have the most competitive prices in the large AC and DC motor industry.  GE has manufactured motors and generators for some of the first commercial and industrial electrical applications and they continue to deliver innovative electrical and mechanical power solutions to the world. Their versatile and robust designs are ideal for a wide range of challenging industrial environments and applications. GE has one of the largest capacities for full load testing and every machine is tested in their global state-of-the-art facilities to exacting requirements. Some other benefits of choosing this trusted brand for your AC motors include their high-quality design, high efficiency, low starting current, leading power factor, and improved electrical system reliability. All GE rotors are carefully balanced to comply with standards requirements, and because of their efficiency, customers of GE AC motors enjoy operating cost savings as well as a better overall starting capability which reduces the starting equipment cost. Additionally, with GE AC motors, you’ll see reduced utility penalties associated with lagging power factor and reduced current pulsations for non-steady loads.

Our extensive inventory of new GE AC Medium Voltage motors ranges from 200-5,000 HP and 900-3600 RPM. If you happen to need a DC motor, we also carry a stock from 5-700 HP in New GE DC motors. We enjoyed a record year of incredible growth with our GE products last year, and are also incredibly proud to stand behind this world-class brand.

We also enjoyed a record year of incredible growth with our Siemens products last year, and are also incredibly proud to stand behind this world-class brand. Siemens industrial electric motors provide an optimum solution for every application, are backed by 150 years of experience, and are unrivaled when it comes to reliability and performance. 

Whether you’re in the market for the incredible value offered by GE or the incomparable quality of Siemens products, East Coast Electrical Equipment Company is your one-stop solution for AC Medium Voltage electric motors. We believe in the power of our products and in the intentions our customers have when they make an electric motor purchase. We hope you’ll think of us as you work towards building a brighter future for the world.

October 2020 Newsletter

Fall has finally arrived in what has certainly been the most unpredictable year we’ve ever experienced as a business. Our hearts go out to our clients, customers, and the many other businesses who have had to navigate an unprecedented number of challenges throughout this year so far. Though we, ourselves, have been surprised by many of the changes sprung upon us, we have looked for the opportunities presented by these changes as a way to improve, evolve, and adapt. Ingenuity and an eye to the future are built into the business of electric motors, after all. So, we at East Coast Electrical Equipment Company have taken this year and its challenges to learn about where we can improve in our own efficiencies and for the benefit of our customers.  We’ve worked on updating and upgrading the way we run our business in order to provide you, our customers, with an even better and more seamless purchasing experience. We’ve done this by modernizing our technology and implementing tools like an internet-based phone system, cloud-based data storage, and continual improvement to our website’s user experience. These improvements have proven to be incredibly effective in streamlining our operations and we’ve enjoyed hearing the feedback from our customers who have taken notice. It turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks! Alongside these new efficiencies, we’re still offering the same personalized service you can only find from a family-owned business. We’re still picking up the phone and assisting customers directly from our headquarters in Youngsville, NC. The days of old are gone, but we can take what we’ve learned from our 52 years of service to our customers and move forward.

Along with our recent technological advances, another highlight of the year has been a recent development with one of our top brands. East Coast Electrical Equipment Company is proud to announce a partnership with General Electric Industrial Motors, a Wolong Company, (GEIM) as the exclusive stocking point for their DC motors. This mutually beneficial relationship has developed over the course of a 20-year relationship and GEIMs’ recognition of our exceptional ability to sell their products. We are currently the largest AC medium voltage stocking distributor of GE Industrial Motors (GEIM) in North America, and we are proud to add this new honor of being their exclusive DC distributor to our credentials. They’ve even featured us on their website as their authorized motor distributor!

“East Coast Electrical Equipment Company is an outstanding partner to the GEIM team. Their knowledge, ingenuity, and integrity allow us to serve our customers quickly. They are our largest medium voltage stocking distributor, and we are very proud that we are expanding our partnership into DC Motors, which will allow us to build an even better world that works!” – Jim Kvas, National Sales Manager at GEIM.

GEIM makes a high-quality product and offers superior service to their customers. Furthermore, they not only consider our needs and market knowledge as a distributor, they also listen to what our customers are saying and implement that feedback in their manufacturing and design. They take a genuine interest in what our customers are after, from features to price, to speed— and we must say, the swiftness of their lead times is unsurpassed. It’s our shared commitment to quality and service that makes this relationship such a natural fit. We look forward to all of the benefits that this partnership will offer our current and future customers. Like General Electric’s newly-coined slogan says, together “we’ll keep building a world that works.”

Siemens’ Business Excellence Award

Since opening our doors in 1968, East Coast Electrical Equipment Company has been dedicated to delivering our clients the best in electric motors and controls at the lowest prices. Along with our commitment to high-quality products, we also consistently strive to provide our customers with the compassionate and thorough customer service they deserve.

While operating this way has been our norm since the beginning, we’re always honored to be recognized by other organizations for our continued dedication to excellent customer service. That’s why we’re especially honored that Siemens chose us for their Business Excellence Award. This award recognizes East Coast Electrical Equipment Company for our outstanding sales accomplishments. We not only are one of Siemens largest  stocking distributors of medium voltage electric motors and controls across North America, but we also demonstrated our commitment to mutual business development.

Our own Tim Pearce knows the value of doing business with an esteemed company like Siemens, and has stated, “We like working with them because of their own knowledge of [electric motor and controls] application and their quality. Their quality is the best in the industry. In the eight years that we’ve worked with them, I can’t remember a time that a warranty was claimed that was because of a motor problem. That’s unheard of; that’s quality.”

Mr. Pearce went on to say, “They’re not the lowest price in the marketplace, but that name is the gold standard. You get what you pay for. And I’ll tell you another thing: they’re just good people. If you call [them] with any questions and they don’t pick up, I can bet I’ll hear back in about thirty minutes. I can’t say that about anyone else [in the industry].”

We at East Coast Electrical Equipment Company like to think our success can largely be attributed to many of the tenets we share with Siemens. Our standard includes delivering the best error-free products to our customers on time, every time.

We proudly adhere to the Siemens’ credo that a worldwide business isn’t complete without world-class service. East Coast Electrical Equipment Company aims to provide premier support to every one of our customers, regardless of location. No matter the issue, we’re confident that one of our experienced team members can find the right solution for your organization.

Providing excellent customer service is one of our top priorities, and along with that is our commitment to offering the best prices available. We believe that working with Siemens has always been worth the investment and our loyal customers often say the same about us. We’re proud to continuously deliver the best in electric motors and controls to our customers at the lowest prices in the industry.

When you’ve been in business for over fifty years, the ongoing goal is for your business to grow and thrive. We at East Coast Electrical Equipment Company are honored to have received recognition for demonstrating a continued commitment to these goals in the form of Siemens’ Business Excellence Award, and we look forward to continuing the tradition we share with this global brand of providing customers with the exact equipment they need at exactly the right price.
