Electric Motor Service Limited was formed in 1945 as a small electric motor service and repair company by local entrepreneurs Cy Ward and Pete Ockers. EMSL’s primary business for a good part of its history was focused on maintaining and servicing small and medium-sized electric motors (including electric motor rewinding) in Alberta.

In 1991, the current ownership group purchased EMSL. Since that time, the business has become a respected, regional Western Canadian electric motor, water pump sales and service powerhouse.

Since its beginning in 1945, EMSL has provided repair and EMSL-old-photo3maintenance services for electric motors for its customers.  Today the repair, rebuilding, and remanufacturing of electric motors and generators continues to be critical to EMSL’s success. With significant new investment in buildings and infrastructure, EMSL will continue to offer the best in electric motor, generator and water/wastewater pump repair and remanufacturing in Western Canada well into the future.
