Our Story

Bater Electric Ltd.

Bater Electric ltd. is proud to be the largest locally owned electric motor repair and rewind shop in Prince George, all of our staff and owners call the BC North home, and we serve our customers with the best service anyone can ask for. We sell, troubleshoot, and repair almost any electric motor. We have the niche of being the only motor shop in town that deals with small bathroom fans, all the way up to heavy-duty motors (over 1000HP) found in sawmills, pulp mills, and mines.

Founded in 1942 by Art Bater the shop started small and Bater Electric ltd. has grown over the years. In 2019 a small group of local people purchased Bater Electric with the drive to make it a state of the art shop that focuses on small motor repair up to 1000HP. Our equipment and our processes are streamlined to ensure reliability at an economical value.
