Our history

Founded in May 2000, Rotamec has grown over 20 years from 2 employees to 64 working across three branches located in Cheddar, Exeter and South Wales. The business was established on the principle of providing a high quality 24-hour repair service to customers. Adaptability was a key advantage for Rotamec – ensuring that challenging projects could be met with innovative services and solutions.

Initially started as a motor rewind and repair business, by 2003 Rotamec had grown to also provide services for wider power transmission applications. Rotamec became members of The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) in 2002 and shortly afterwards achieved ISO 9001 and UKAS accreditation. In 2019, Rotamec was awarded the ‘Contribution to Skills & Training’ Award by the AEMT for its grassroots apprentice training initiative. In May 2020, the company celebrated its 20th anniversary.
