OUR Vision

We began in the City of Bradford, West Yorkshire when two eager young individuals known as Mr Lawn & Mr Smith came together with the vision of providing the biggest and most extensive range of both Ac and DC motors which weren’t just exceptional in quality, but also economically reliant and affordable. Our success today is built upon this powerful foundation. Bradford Armature Winding Company has been incredibly successful in this industry from the very beginning with detailed understanding the principles of electric motor industry, combining them with innovative ideas and technology.

History & Achievements

Since our beginning in 1919 our goal has always been to provide the biggest and most extensive range of AC and DC motors which are of exceptional quality and brilliant value for money. Bradford Armature Winding Company’s success is built on understanding the principles of electric motor industry, combining them with innovative ideas and technology.

This picture was taken in the 1950’s to commemorate the opening of our new building which was located on Manchester Road (back when the roads were made of cobble!). We had made significant advancements in the industry and needed a bigger, better place to call home.

In the late 1960’s, after many years of planning, demolition and head-scratching – our brand new building on Bowling Old Lane was finally complete. This building was purpose built for the industry we were in, allowing us to work efficiently to repair and sell electric motors. We’d even left areas of the site available for us to build and expand on. Our current headquarters are still located within this custom-designed building.
