Ashland Electric Products, Inc. was founded in 1953 in Long Island City, New York, subsequently moving to Bush Terminal in Brooklyn, NY. For many years Ashland supplied performance hysteresis and specialty motors for a variety of customer applications including the recording, television, computer, medical, and industrial markets. Ashland was bought by the current ownership in 1985 strengthening the company’s motor and manufacturing knowledge base.
In 1989 the company was relocated to a new 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Rochester, NH. Around this time the company expanded the fans, blowers and air mover product lines marketed to aerospace, defense, transportation and other specialty industries.
In 2012 Ashland purchased the assets of Dack Blower and has continued production of Dack’s high performance fan blades – now offered under the Ashland Electric Products name. As a family owned and operated company Ashland continues to provide quality manufactured motors, fans and components to a variety of markets and industries.
Ashland’s highly skilled employees have many years of experience in motor and rotating equipment manufacturing and are crucial to the company’s success as a design house and original equipment manufacturer. Over the years Ashland has collected many awards and acknowledgements for quality, on-time delivery and strategic supply. Management’s commitment to continuous improvement and lean principles allow Ashland to remain competitive in a market dominated by foreign manufacturers.
