Established as Dreisilker Electric Motor and Appliance Service by Henry Dreisilker in 1955, the company specialized in commercial motor repair and sales. As the business grew, Henry Dreisilker realized that a void existed in the motor repair industry. Mr. Dreisilker re-focused the core competency of the business towards industrial large scale motor remanufacturing. Searching for an effective process that would provide a long lasting quality repair Dreisilker introduced its industry exclusive Motor Safe Repair Process.Delivering a complete solution that allows forensic analysis, is environmentally friendly and provides long lasting results Dreisilker’s Motor Safe Process fulfills what customers demand - improved reliability, increased uptime and substantial energy savings.

What began as a 750 sq foot facility in Glen Ellyn IL, has grown into a modern 73,000 sq foot climate controlled remanufacturing center. Additionally, to service its national base of customers Dreisilker operates repair facilities in McHenry Illinois and Carrollton Georgia. What’s more, as an outgrowth of its original charter Dreisilker offers HVAC parts, supplies, motors and service out of 6 branch locations strategically placed throughout Chicagoland and 2 locations in Western Georgia.

Now under the direction of company President Leo Dreisilker the company continues to grow and operate under Henry Dreisilker’s original business philosophy of putting the customer first and providing exceptional service. “I’m proud to carry on the traditions that my father began”, states Leo Dreisilker. “As we enter into our 60th year we will continue to evolve our service offerings by utilizing the latest technology to deliver what our customers want” continued Dreisilker. An internal company celebration took place on May 1st and a special customer and partner centric open house will take place in September of 2015.
