These high temperature kiln motors are made specifically for batch lumber drying. At EBI, we also design and manufacture thousands of control panels and motor control centres (MCC) every year for different industrial sectors. We are also an authorized electrical components distributor: contactors, push buttons, fuses, cables, variable speed drives (VFDs), soft starters, safety switches, etc. Among our most popular brands of products is Yaskawa. Our internal technical sales team is devoted to advise customers about selecting the electrical parts that best suit their needs. At EBI, we can also help you stock on electric motors. We have motors starting from the smallest horsepower to the highest HPs. Finally, EBI provides LED lighting equipment: tubes, fixtures, etc., in order to facilitate the replacement of expensive, outdated, and less performant lighting equipment.

EBI’s team includes industrial programmers, engineers (electrical, wood, civil, mechanical), industrial electricians, draftsmen and control panel designers, project managers, instrumentation and control technicians, industrial electronics specialists, electric motor winders and internal sales technical advisors. We are always on the lookout for new team members who wish to perform and offer an exceptionnal experience to our customers.

EBI Electric Services

EBI Electric services include the preparation and management of industrial electrical projects such as the electrical installation and cabling of industrial machinery and building. In our electrical installation division, EBI is active in different industrial fields but our team is particularly knowed for its performance in the lumber industry. EBI is offers its expertise in automation and industrial programming. We program industrial equipment and particularly those related to the sawmilling industry. In combination with our automation specialty, we are experts in the electrical troubleshooting and debugging of industrial machinery with our service field technicians and our programmers. One of our specialty is thermography (thermal imagery) used to detect abnormal sources of heating in control panels. In 1946, our first professional activity at EBI was the repair of electric motors. Still today, we repair many kinds of electric motors in combination with our dynamic balancing services. Our different dynamic balancing benches allow us to balance mechanical parts from the smallest to the heaviest. Our dynamic balancing tolerances are the same as aviation and military precision tolerances. We also operate a special industrial electronics repair shop: DMEB Service. Our technicians in that division are at the fine edge of the latest technology and specialize in the repair and reconditionning of industrial electronics equipment: variable frequency drives (VFDs), servomotors, soft starters, electronic circuit boards, HMI interfaces, power supplies and other auxiliary equipment. Through this branch, EBI also offers the tropicalization or coating of VFD circuit boards. Finally, through its Eco Energy division, EBI installs LED lighting equipment.
