Industry leader Northwest Electric is partnering with Van der Graaf Drum Motors to become the region's one-stop-shop for all industrial electromechanical needs. Now, with factory-trained technicians, Northwest Electric is the region's only certified Van der Graaf Drum Motor Repair center, serving Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota. In addition to the repair center, Northwest Electric is also a supplier of Van der Graaf Drum Motors.

The need for a more diverse range of solutions for customers played an integral role in Northwest Electric's decision.
