Stultz Electric Company History

Stultz Electric Works was founded in 1907 by H. F. Stultz. Howard's initial work experience in the Westbrook, Maine area was primarily as an in-field supervisor for on-site rewinding of motors at S. D. Warren Co. As the years passed, Howard established a repair shop on main street in downtown Westbrook. Two of Howard's five sons, Phil Stultz Sr. and Paul Stultz Sr., bought the business in the mid 1940's. After the war, the two sons expanded the motor repair business to include new electric motor sales, power transmission equipment and associated product lines. At this time, they hired their brother Harold Stultz Sr. to help manage the warehouse. During the early 1950's, the real estate at 25 Bridge Street was purchased and modified to accommodate the repair business while allowing for future growth.

Branch businesses were opened in Portland, Lewiston, and Bangor, Maine during the 60's decade. Product lines expanded into the hydraulics and pneumatics business as well as electric motor controls and several motor lines. The building at 25 Bridge Street was expanded in 1967 to provide for 10-ton lifting capacity and for much needed repair work floor space. Customers at that time stretched from northern Maine, through New Hampshire, and into Massachusetts.

James Stultz Sr. (Paul's son) started with the company on a full time basis in June, 1970, while Phil Stultz Jr. started full time in 1976, after serving 6 years as a naval flight officer. James and Phil Jr. managed the business for their fathers from 1976 through 1984. During this time period, the building at 25 Bridge Street was once again expanded to increase overhead lifting capacity to 20-tons while providing over 7,000 square feet of additional floor space.

On Feb. 29, 1984, the business was split leaving Phil Jr. with the hydraulics division and the Bangor branch, while James Sr. had the electric repairs and sales in Westbrook and a branch operation in Lewiston. Purchase agreements were established with the respective fathers.

Stultz Electric Motor Systems Credentials:

Just about the time AC power was making itís initial impact into Americanís power grid, Stultz was budding as one of Maineís independent motor repair facilities. It's the 90 years of experience and knowledge which has been passed along for three generations that makes Stultz a "value added" repair facility.

We were the first repair facility in Maine to use Class H as a standard insulation system in low voltage rewinds, first to extend a two year warranty as standard on low voltage rewinds, first to use "inverter duty" magnet wire exclusively on all rewinds, first to include dynamic rotor balancing at no charge on all repaired motors, and now we are the first to offer a detailed report on the cause of motor failure along with a host of other information which will allow our customers to better track motor repairs.

Custom equipment necessary in our repair industry has been carefully selected to allow flexibility in repairing the smallest to the vastly large motors at our shop. This provides us the ability to rewind smaller motors in a matter of hours, should the need arise, while still keeping the normal delivery work on its routine schedule. Whether our customers require rewinding of a 1/16 Hp special gearmotor, overhauling of a 300 Hp DC drive motor, or the redesign and rewinding of a 1500 Hp 2400 volt synchronous motor, our employees and equipment can handle it.

Since we are an active member of the Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA), and one of the first repair shops in the country to join the organization, all of our repairs conform to or exceed the EASA standard for rebuilding electric motors. In those cases where repairs must duplicate specific factory design criteria, factory data is acquired for confirmation to be made according to those specifications. †

Testimonials from some of our valued customers:

Recently, here at Sanford Sewerage District, we encountered several pump and motor problems, as the facility is 18 years old.† In our search for motor and pump repair vendors, we discovered Stultz Electric. They could not only rebuild pumps and rewind motors, but also provide the service of extricating and installing.† This turn key type of operation not only saved time, but also money, as we were able to contract our vendor.† We are very pleased with the service and timely manner of work completed by Stultz Electric.

I'm so glad I chose Stultz to design, build and install my new pumping stations control systems. Stultz Electric is truly an outstanding team. Thanks again.

This is my 50th year doing business with Stultz, therefore, it is only fitting and proper that this $50.00 is just one more example of your excellent service.
