Baldor says the acquisition positions it as the largest industrial electric motor manufacturer in North America, with products ranging from 1/50 to 15,000 horsepower. The addition of the Dodge product line moves Baldor into the power transmission products business.
“This was a unique opportunity,” explains John McFarland, Baldor’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Baldor has led the industry for years with a core strength in small motors, where Reliance’s strength has been in larger motors. Now, both products will complement each other nicely. Adding the Dodge power transmission products will also provide customers an end-to-end solution from one supplier.”
