The company provides an offering of stock models of electric motors in addition to the motors that the company produces to specific customer specifications. These products range in size from sub-fractional and fractional to small integral horsepower motors to larger commercial and industrial motors approximately 6,500 horsepower. The company’s HVAC electric motors and blowers are components of an HVAC system and are used to move air into and away from furnaces, heat pumps, air conditioners, ventilators, fan filter boxes, water heaters, and humidifiers. The company’s power generation business includes electric generators and power generation components and controls. Its generators are used in commercial, industrial, agricultural, marine, military, transportation, construction, data centers, and other applications. During 2013, the company acquired Cemp s.r.l. (Cemp), an Italy based electric motor company, which is a designer, manufacturer and marketer of flameproof electric motors; and the RAM motor business previously owned by Schneider Electric, which manufactures hermetic motors from 250 hp to 2,500 hp for commercial HVAC applications. Mechanical This segment manufactures and markets a range of mechanical motion control products, including standard and custom worm gearboxes, bevel gearboxes, helical gearboxes, and concentric shaft gearboxes; open gearing; marine transmissions; custom gearing; gear motors; manual valve actuators; and electrical connecting devices. The company’s gear and transmission related products primarily control motion by transmitting power from a source, such as an electric motor, to an end use, such as a conveyor belt, usually reducing speed and increasing torque in the process. Its valve actuators are used primarily in oil and gas, water distribution and treatment, and chemical processing applications. Mechanical products are sold to original equipment manufacturers, distributors, and end users across various industries. Research and Development In 2013, the company’s research and development expenses included $28.3 million.
