Press Release
Wednesday, May 16, 2012

ABB, power and automation technology group, will acquire Bob White Electrix and L.E Jarvis to broaden its motor and generator repair and service business in Australia

ABB Australia is acquiring the business of the Victoria- and Perth-based, privately owned companies for an undisclosed amount. The proposed acquisition is expected to close in July 2012.

Bob White Electrix has been established in the Australian marketplace since 1946. With in-house specialist coil manufacturing, large motor and generator repairs and a high speed-balancing pit built to accommodate rotors up to 85 tonnes, Bob White Electrix has built a reputation as a leader in the field of generator and motor repairs, including very large machines of up to 230 tonnes.

L.E Jarvis has been operating as a business in Perth since 1967. Since that time, they have built a reputation as a quality service company specialising in rewind, repair, maintenance and overhaul of industrial motors and generators.

With two workshops in Victoria and one in Western Australia, this acquisition complements ABB's motor sales portfolio and enables ABB to service customers across all states of Australia. ABB currently has a service workshop in Brisbane.

"This acquisition strengthens ABB's ability to offer first-class service capabilities for all sizes of motors and generators across the country," said Axel Kuhr, Country Manager of ABB Australia. "It will enable our current field service team to draw on the experience of nearly 100 additional resources and will establish ABB as a leader in generator and motor repairs."

Combined, the two companies offer the following services: AC and DC motor/generator maintenance and repairs; coil manufacturing; dynometer load testing; eddy current couplings and brakes; hazardous area equipment repair; high speed balancing; low speed balancing; and on-site services.
