Existing under different names, First Electric Motor Shop, Inc. saw over fifty years of motor repair under its previous owners, Arnold Kochman and Journeyman Electrician Jack Burris. The previous business location at 203 Jefferson St. in Springfield, Illinois (site of the current Isringhausen Imports) was purchased by Kochman and Burris in 1954. After being faced with high repair costs and the need to remodel the century-old building, Kochman and Burris moved the business to its current location at 1130 W. Reynolds St. in 1997, and the Jefferson building was demolished to make way for Isringhausen. The new location, (formerly J & J Alignment Shop) made for a better investment for First Electric, with double the parking space, the ability to expand its retail offering, and the ability to work on larger, horsepower motors.
In September 2021 First Electric Motor Shop, Inc. was purchased by current owners, Brad DeLuka, and Brandon Rebbe. Brad is part of the family that established First Electric Motor, Inc. in Springfield, Illinois in 1972.
With Brad’s years of experience as an Electrical Technician his primary focus for the business is day-to-day operations and customer service. Brandon brings 20+ years of expertise in the technology industry & project management. Brandon’s Focus on the business is utilizing his experience to help shape the long-term vision of First Electric Motor Shop, Inc.
With the combined years of experience across multiple facets of industry Brad & Brandon will enable First Electric Motor Shop Inc. to grow while upholding the same level of service started back in 1972.
