Worldwide Electric is the largest independent manufacturer/importer of electric motors in the United States today. Headquarters are in Rochester, NY where the company was founded by Mr. Rick Simmonds and Mr. Fred Rosen in 1998. Both men were former managers at the Ajax Motor Corporation and they remained there until acquisition began changing the company. They realized with their expertise and knowledge about all things electric motors, they would be wise to start their own company, and that's what they did.


Due to their extensive knowledge about industrial electric motors from their days at Ajax, Rick and Fred both had developed experience in dealing with not only Brazil and Asis, but in particular, China. With each new visit to these countries they made, they gained a greater understanding of each country and their manufacturing capabilities. They then selected Beijing Electric as their primary source for Worldwide branded motors. This led to their new Worldwide Electric brand of Beijing Electric flourishing; this allowed Worldwide Electric to expand their business even more.


Additional product lines were added in 2005 and by 2010 the Worldwide Corporation added the Hyundai Electric motor line to its line of already well established products. Present-day Worldwide Electric presents a full line of motors, controls and gearing that originate from the United States, China, Korea and Taiwan. It is here you will find the most quality tested/assured and diverse lines of electrical-mechanical products in the industry today.
