Shermco Industries is investing $1 million in a new electric test center at its Irving headquarters that will get critical motors and generators back to customers faster. The company repairs high-power motors for everything from wind turbines to steel factories. This week, I toured the facility with CEO Ron Widup, who said there’s often a backlog of motors waiting for a final performance testing because there was only one platform. It’s one of the final steps before the motor is returned to the customer. The new test bed is expected to increase the shop’s output by 10 to 15 percent.
