Brithinee Electric Motors: Open House Brings Guests In-N-Out
March 18, 2011— Service people, motor delivery drivers, and field purchasing personnel are in and out of Brithinee Electric’s Motor Repair Facility every day. March 15 & 16 was no exception—IN-N-OUT burgers were on the menu, too!
For two days, Brithinee Electric hosted an Open House during lunch hours at the company’s new large motor facility in Colton. As an extra treat for customers, prospects, and vendors, Brithinee hired the IN-N-OUT Burger truck to serve made-to-order hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and their famous “double-doubles.”
Approximately 250 guests and employees were served over the two-day event, which included many guided tours of the recently expanded large motor/generator service center and the controls department. At numerous work stations throughout the facility, company representatives explained the processes and procedures Brithinee follows when servicing a motor or generator, or when manufacturing a motor control center.
The building expansion, completed in August, 2010, now houses a large motor power supply and test pad for motor and generator testing, two room-sized industrial ovens, a below-ground tank system for resin treatment of large motors, a large paint booth, three new bridge cranes (up to 20 tons capacity), and a comfortable 50-seat classroom equipped with elevator for handicapped accessibility.
Business cards were collected for opportunity drawings on each day. The winners of $50 gift cards from Pro Bass Shops were Chris Bonadurer from the City of Ontario’s Water Department, and David Best from Apple Valley Ranchos Water Company. A visitor of special note was Gary Williams, Donald and Wallace Brithinee’s physics teacher from Fontana High School. They took his course in 1964-65, and Mr. Williams has been retired for thirteen years.
The ribbon cutting for the new facility was held on November 18, 2010. Brithinee Electric is a leading large electric motor/generator repair facility serving the U.S. southwest and Pacific coast regions, with motors and generators coming from sites as far away as Washington, Oregon, and Texas.
