Founded May 1, 1955, Dreisilker Electric Motors (http://www.dreisilker.com) is celebrating its 55th anniversary at its headquarters in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.

When Henry Dreisilker first came to Illinois from Germany in 1954, he found work at an appliance and motor repair business. One year later, he bought the business and founded Dreisilker Electric Motors Inc. His newly established company was dedicated to excellent customer service, highest quality materials, and precision workmanship.

“Gradually, the business shifted its focus away from appliances to concentrate on electric motor sales, controls and motor repair”, according to company president, Leo Dreisilker, son of the founder. “As the company grew, it began to specialize in selling and servicing certain foreign and domestic motors used in the printing and machine tool industries, much in demand in commercial and industrial markets in the Chicago area.”

Beginning in the late 1960s, the Dreisilker shop adopted their unique Motor-Safe™ Repair method for stripping and rewinding motors. This technique avoids damage to motor components, produces more efficient results, and ensures longer service life than inferior “burnout” methods used by most motor shops.

In recent decades, to provide continuous customer support of their products, the DTM2 Program was introduced. This electric motor management service is comprised of a team of experienced motor reliability technicians who perform a wide range of preventive maintenance tests, including motor diagnostics, dynamic balancing, infrared inspection, and vibration analysis.

About The Company: DREISILKER provides complete electric motor solutions to commercial, industrial and municipal customers. The company distributes new electric motors, parts, accessories and controls from major OEMs, as well as maintains motors with expert field service. They specialize in Motor-Safe™ Repair methods using non-burnout stripping, accurate and precise rewinding, advanced varnishing, dynamic balancing, and thorough testing. The Dreisilker goal is to improve motor reliability and increase uptime; Its company motto: “We are driven to save you energy.” The corporate headquarters is located in Glen Ellyn, Illinois and is supported by an auxiliary sales and repair facility in McHenry as well as five other branch locations in the greater Chicago area, with an additional location near Atlanta, GA.
