70+ Years of Industry Experience

After years of working in the industry and attending technical classes at CMCC, SMTC & EMTC, Dan Furrow decided to venture out on his own.  With a strong work-ethic and a desire to provide high quality technical and customer service, Dan opened Prime Electric Motors, Inc in January 2005 in Westbrook, ME.  As the business grew, so did the need for a much larger work space.

In 2010, Prime Electric moved to its present location at 72 Sanford Drive in Gorham, ME.  With a 14,000 square-foot facility, Prime Electric was able to expand its customer base and services provided, as well as, house additional state-of-the-art equipment such as:

  • a VPI system
  • 80,000 LB lift-capability crane
  • cryogenic cleaning equipment and more.

According to plan, this expansion helped to provide even better quality and cost-efficient workmanship.

Today, Prime Electric Motors, an EASA member, is still a Maine-based and owner-operated company.  Along with Dan overseeing day-to-day operations, the Prime Electric family consists of highly-trained, certified technicians with an excellent safety rating totaling over 70 years of combined industry experience.

Prime Electric even has a company mascot, a Lab-mix named Sasha, who is always quick to greet customers, lend input at staff meetings and provide K-9 comfort when needed.
