About Duncan Electric Motor Ltd.

Welcome to our website!

Established on May 1, 1971, Duncan Electric Motor was incorporated in British Columbia, Canada on Vancouver Island in April of 1972. Its success is mainly contributed to the continuous support by the industry in that area. The company is one hundred percent Vancouver Island owned and operated. The total source of income arrives from sales and services of electrical apparatus in two locations, at Campbell River and Duncan, B.C.

Harold, our Campbell River manager, was born in Vancouver, B.C. and moved to Vancouver Island in 1971. At this time (age 13), he took interest in electric motors and has enjoyed working with them ever since.

Gene, the company C.E.O., took his training at Siemens' STADT Berlin Germany, and has lived in B.C. since 1956.

All journeymen motor technicians are local employees and have been trained in our Duncan and Campbell River plants. Some have been employed here for more than 25 years. All are B.C.I.T and AB S.A.I.T Certificate holders with high grades. The company employs eleven people.
