Friday, July 15, 2016 York Repair is proud to announce that, earlier this year, it completed the process of acquiring Lansing Electric Motors, in Lansing Michigan. The acquisition marks a significant milestone in York’s history, making it one of the first motor apparatus/service centers in the State of Michigan to have multiple branches available to its customers.
The addition of LEM, gives York a strategic location in the lower-middle of the state, which will allow it to better serve both new and existing customers in Southeast Michigan(Detroit area) as well as the entire West Michigan(Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo) area of the State.
Perhaps the biggest benefit gained as a result of the acquisition, is the addition of a well-seasoned team of professionals on LEM’s staff. To start with, there’s Branch Manager Mark Selby, who served as Lansing Electric Motors President and General Manager and has 19 years of experience with the company. Mark’s staff in Lansing consists of office manager Kathy Markarian, inside sales representative Jim French, and tech center supervisor Al Keener, just to name a few of the 15 employed at that 20,000 square foot facility located at 1905 S. Washington Avenue.
Lansing Electric Motors has established long history of quality sales and service dating all of the way back to 1943 when the company was founded by Mark’s Grandfather, Frederick Selby. LEM will continue to provide excellent service to its existing customer base, but will now have the ability to gain new business in the region as a result of added capabilities as a branch of York Repair. The two branches will complement each other well; as there are unique services that each location provides that will now be available to BOTH York and LEM customers. Welder and generator repair are just a couple of examples of services LEM brings to the partnership that were not services offered by York in the past.
