Brook Crompton is the original innovator in electric motor development. They are a leading provider of energy efficient electric motors. In 1904 a man by the name of Ernest Brook made his first motor in Huddersfield, UK, and he formed Brook Motors. Meanwhile, Colonel Crompton had formed his own company R.E.B. Crompton in 1878. It wasn't until the 1970s that the two companies came together to be known as Brook Crompton.

Over the years, Brook Crompton has acquired other electric companies and grown their company. Brook Motors, Crompton Parkinson, Electrodrives (which includes AEI and English Electric), and Newman and Hawker Siddeley Electric Motors have all been acquired by Brook Crompton.

Brook Crompton UK is still based in Huddersfield today and they hold an impressive stock which can be modified to suit any specific application required. By the year 1958, Brook Crompton had opened its first North American facility in Toronto, Canada. This was quickly followed by additional facilities in the USA where products were now being introduced and designed for these local markets.

The local businesses of Western Electric Asia and Brook Crompton merged in 1992 to form Brook Crompton Asia-Pacific Pte Ltd. Brook Crompton had been present in the Asia Pacific market for many years prior to the merger; with a sales office in Singapore and many country distributors in the region.

Today all Brook Crompton businesses are owned by Brook Crompton Holdings Ltd., a public listed company based out of Singapore. The company offers a wide range of industrial electric motor products.
