Acquisition adds resources for customers in Kansas and Oklahoma and strengthens IPS Wind Group coverage
(Greenville, SC — July 29, 2021) IPS, the North American leader in service, repair and engineering for electric motors, generators and rotating equipment, continues its strategic growth with the acquisition of Rotek Services.
Headquartered in Wichita, KS with a branch repair facility in Enid, OK, Rotek Services is a full-service electrical apparatus company. Rotek’s repair capability ranges from fractional up to 10,000 horsepower motors, including servo and spindle motor repair. The company is an EASA-certified compliant to AR100 and UL-accredited electric motor repair operation. It also provides field services and distribution to its customers.
Rotek’s two locations will join the IPS service center network as IPS Wichita and IPS Enid. IPS is already the North American leader in aftermarket wind generator services and Rotek adds to its capabilities. The two new IPS service centers are closer to wind farms in west Texas, northern Oklahoma, Kansas and New Mexico. These locations will become the seventh and eighth service centers qualified to perform wind generator repair in the IPS service network. Brian McNeil, Rotek’s founder and owner, will join IPS as the Area General Manager for IPS Wichita and IPS Enid, reporting to Jason McDonald, Senior Vice-President, Wind Power.
“This sale was years in the making,” Brian McNeil said. “Over that time, we’ve come to know and respect the people at IPS. We admire their dedication to continuous improvement and the Unmatched Customer Experience. There’s a need for innovative wind power services in this region — we intend to take care of it.”
“Our long-standing relationship with Brian McNeil led to IPS having the privilege to acquire Rotek,” said John Zuleger, IPS President & CEO. “The skills of their employees, their shop capabilities and leading provider status with industrial customers make us confident that they’ll be a valuable addition to the IPS Wind Power portfolio. Joining IPS will help Rotek continue to add capabilities and expand their services for all customers.”
The Rotek acquisition fills a gap in IPS service coverage for the middle of the United States. The IPS North American service network now has 33 total locations and 25 repair centers for motors, generators and rotating equipment across North America.
