Cutting Edge Industrial Technology + Service Capabilities Come Together 
Under the Ward Leonard Brand Name

Creates The Only Single Source Motor, Generator, Pump, Control and 
MRO Solutions Company in the Industry


THOMASTON, CT, April 11, 2016 ― Ward Leonard, a 120 year old diversified industrial technology company that provides highly engineered, motor and control solutions to Military and Heavy Industry customers worldwide, announced it has fully integrated Houma Armature Works, the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) company specializing in motor, generator and pump systems it acquired last year.

The combined entity will operate solely under the Ward Leonard brand name in all markets, and be the only company of its size to provide customers with a single source for highly engineered and custom motor, generator, pump, control and MRO solutions.

“Our customers, and the industries we serve, are focused on achieving greater efficiencies in everything they do,” said Chris Spafford, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Ward Leonard. “By bringing Houma Armature fully into the Ward Leonard family, we are able to marry technology and service in ways other manufacturers and service companies simply can’t, or won’t, do. The net result is that we can help our customers simultaneously improve product application performance and drive down overall CAPEX and OPEX costs, in ways they hadn’t imagined.”
