Manville Electric Motor Takes Charge In Shelby County

The region south of Birmingham is enjoying robust growth. As it grows, factories and warehouses in the area rely on an ever-higher number of electric motors to get the work done. From forklifts to industrial equipment and tools, electric motors carry more and more of the load.

Yet when it comes to servicing and rebuilding electric motors, local businesses have not had many options. Until now.

Manville Electric Motors has been in Pelham for 35 years. However, under the new ownership of Brooks Adams, President, the company has widened its focus beyond the original niche of electric forklifts.

“When I acquired Manville in mid-2018, it was a company with a great reputation and loyal customers. At the same time,” adds Adams, “We operated within a very defined market. However, the principles of an electric motor aren’t different, regardless of its application and size. Once we moved beyond our original scope, we found a large number of companies needing our help.”

Today, Manville services a wider array of electric motors for local industry. Manville’s  location in Pelham, as well as its established expertise, is winning new customers.

“Just yesterday, I had one customer walk in the door with an electric motor that needed rebuilding. Before, he was having to take his motor to North Birmingham. Now? He has a much shorter drive.”

Not to mention a huge surge to his productivity.

Manville Electric Motors is located at 147 Business Center Dr. A, Pelham, AL 35244. To learn more, visit its website at Or call 205-985-9505.
