Our History

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.

The Bradford Armature Winding Company was officially awarded a certificate by

Alcumus ISOQAR to certify that BAWCO meets and complies with the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015.

BAWCO was awarded a certificate in 2006 to certify that we meet the requirements of ISO 9001: 2015. Approved by Alcumus ISOQAR.

The Bradford Armature Winding Company was officially presented a prestigious award from the Yorkshire Air Museums Dakota Team for generously supporting them and providing help. BAWCO provided the starter motors which were used on the Dakota Air plane.

BAWCO was officially awarded a Certificate of Membership from The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades. This was a huge breakthrough as it allowed us to expand our supply of AEMT products. The certificate entitled us to become an approved member of AEMT.

We stock and distribute many different brands, including AMET.
