Beaver Electrical Machinery: A Legacy of Excellence in Electrical Services

Beaver Electrical Machinery was established in Burnaby in 1955, starting as a transformer rewind facility. Over the years, the company has expanded its focus to include a comprehensive range of electrical sales and services, such as motors, generators, and switchgear. The head office and main plant, located in Burnaby, house the Sales Team, Rewind and Repair Shop, and Field Service office. A small sales team, along with a recently renovated and expanded motor service center, serves Vancouver Island from Nanoose Bay.

As a leading provider in BC for power distribution testing, repairs, and products, Beaver Electrical maintains one of Canada's largest inventories of distribution transformers. Customers can rely on their extensive stock for immediate needs, rather than waiting for orders to arrive. Additionally, Beaver Electrical can source and supply virtually any type of new and used distribution equipment.

The company's field service personnel are experts in testing and calibration of equipment, as well as diagnosing equipment problems. Supported by engineering staff and fully equipped repair facilities, they serve both the BC mainland and Vancouver Island. With nearly 70 years of experience in the electrical service business, Beaver's engineers are proficient in troubleshooting power disturbances and designing complete electrical distribution systems.

Beaver Electrical specializes in diagnosing, analyzing, and correcting power quality problems, crucial for office buildings with large computer and lighting loads, as well as industrial plants with sophisticated electronic and computer-based process control. Poor power quality can lead to unpredictable and potentially disastrous situations. The service technicians and engineering staff at Beaver Electrical have hundreds of combined years of experience assisting commercial and industrial customers in maintaining efficient plant operations.

A significant part of the company's success is evident through its nearing 70 years of service and a loyal customer base. The strong sense of loyalty at Beaver extends to its staff as well, with many nearing retirement having been with the company since finishing school. Beaver Electrical takes pride in the relationships it has forged between its staff, customers, and the BC industry as a whole.

To further solidify its commitment to customer satisfaction, Beaver Electrical provides support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Known as problem solvers, the company has successfully carved its niche in the market. With a focus on exceptional service and quality, Beaver Electrical is poised to continue its legacy of excellence in the electrical sales and service industry.
