IPS (Integrated Power Services), a North American provider of service, repair and engineering for electric motors and generators, acquired Industrial Electric Motor Works (IEMW).

Located in Meridian, Mississippi, Industrial Electric is a full-service electric motor and generator service company. Tom McDaniel, Industrial Electric’s founder, opened the business in 1965. Today, the company employs 56 people and serves industrial customers across the South.

Industrial Electric runs a repair shop for electric motors up to 5,000 hp, with field services for drives, motors, generators, pumps, fans, controls and gearboxes.

Industrial Electric also has a distribution operation, IPS says. The company maintains an inventory that includes Toshiba, Baldor, Lafert and Brook Hansen electric motors, Toshiba variable-frequency drives, and Sumitomo and SEW-Eurodrive gear reducers.

According to IPS, the acquisition expands its service footprint and strengthens its distribution business, particularly in the Southeast.

Tom McDaniel’s sons, Tony, Industrial Electric’s president, and Stephen, service and repair manager, will join IPS and support the company’s integration into the IPS North American network.

“The Industrial Electric Motor Works family is proud to join IPS,” Tony McDaniel says. “IPS shares our values and commitment to the customer, so we’re excited to see what we can do together.”

Adds John Zuleger, IPS president and CEO: “We’re proud to add Industrial Electric to our North American network, which now has 20 service centers and 30 locations. What stood out to us about IEMW was their excellent reputation with customers. To have ongoing operations for 55 years is remarkable, but it’s truly extraordinary to see it done so well for so long.”
