Still Running After 53 years


/wp-imagesWhen the motor that comes out of a well is 53 years old, you know it could only have come from Franklin Electric. That was exactly the case earlier this year when a New England contractor pulled the motor in this photograph. Manufactured in June 1955, the best part is that this motor still worked.

People often say that time will tell, particularly when proving the quality of a product. Since Franklin introduced the first water-lubricated submersible motor for widespread residential use in 1950, our products have proven themselves time and again. Whether motors, pumps, drives, or controls, we design our products to last.

If you have a story about a long-lived Franklin product, we’d love to hear it. Click here to send your comments.
