Jay Industrial Repair believes that to be a leader in the industry that we have to constantly upgrade our repair capabilities and over the last 5-7 years we have invested back into our company in many ways. Some of highlights are below. This list is not at all all-inclusive but highlights some important investments that demonstrate our drive for continuous improvement.
Precision Electric Coil and Rotor and Precision High Voltage Systems
- automatic taping systems – $250,000
- 2nd glassing machine for our magnet wire used in coil production – $140,000
- a new rotor shop building connected to coil complex with dual 15 ton bridge cranes – $1 million
- Cam engineered mica turn tape machine – $110,000
- a new facility with modern and state of the art equipment to manufacture high voltage VPI and B-stage form coils for our 3 motors service centers plus other companies across North America. We are currently manufacturing a set of coils for a Guatemalan company so we looking to expand offerings worldwide. Total investment is over $4 million.
Motor repair service centers

- Phoenix test stand – $500,000
- A Mobile, Al service facility focused on mechanical repairs specifically turbines inspections and repairs. We are also looking to invest significant capital to improve the building’s workflow and give us more workspace under crane. The facility with turbine portable repair equipment – close to $1.2 million.
- improvements to building scheduled for early 2015 – $300,000
- currently making change of operating system to Motorbase which we believe will enhance and improve all aspects of our customer service reporting and internal repair tracking and inventory management.
For 2015, Jay Industrial Repair and Precision are committed to improving our internal machine shop equipment specially acquiring a very large lathe for turbine rotors, CNC lathes, automated equipment for medium voltage coil operation, improvements to Mobile, Al service building to name just a few things. And we looking towards late 2015 – 2016 into upgrading our motor test stand to be largest in the region, doing the same for our balancing equipment and constantly being on lookout for new and emerging technologies to offer our customers.
And most importantly, we are making investments in our people. We are looking to expand what we already do in training and certifications for technical workforce by companies like Richard Love and Associates, certifications for our infield technicians in vibration and balancing among other things. Our people are our best asset and without our dedicated techs, winders, mechanics, machinists and coil technicians we would not be where we are today.
