Three Motion Industries service centers become Rexnord certified


Motion Industries, Inc., a leading distributor of maintenance, repair, and operation replacement parts and a wholly owned subsidiary of Genuine Parts Company, is pleased to announce that its service centers in Charleston, West Virginia; Pensacola, Florida; and Salt Lake City, Utah; have become certified Rexnord partners in Falk gear drive repair. These three Motion Industries service centers each passed an extensive facility and process audit to verify repair execution to Rexnord’s original OEM work standards.

Ray Tingle, Vice President of Vertical Marketing – Material Handling at Rexnord said, “Rexnord is expanding our service network as customers are seeking more – and local – options for high-quality gearbox repair services. Rexnord Certified Shop service technicians undergo the same rigorous training and follow the same industry-leading Falk RENEW standards of work and quality as Rexnord Service Centers. This allows Rexnord and our partners to extend the network of service centers to deliver high quality gearbox repairs locally. We are impressed by the workmanship at these Motion Industries service centers, and are pleased to announce their certifications. They earned it!”

With the certifications, these service centers expand their offerings to provide customers with shorter lead times, yet with enhanced quality. Gearbox repairs at these sites are approved to Rexnord’s standards for quality, process, and authentic OE parts content. Certification also ensures that all repairs are completed with authentic Falk or Rexnord parts.

Tony Cefalu, Motion Industries Senior Vice President Hose, Shops, and Service Centers, said, “Motion Industries has been committed to the repair business for many years and our footprint of shops demonstrates this. We are extremely pleased to partner with Rexnord on this certification program. This allows our customers to send their gearboxes to Motion for repair, knowing that it has been serviced by trained technicians following the same standards as the factory.”
