Equipment service & repair
From big iron to high-tech servo, marine generators to water treatment plant pumps, hospital HVAC systems to aggregate kilns, we’ll get your AC and DC equipment running—or tell you what your options are. We’re specialists in hard-to-find parts (including brake parts) and experts in determining what to do when a part isn’t available to ensure there aren’t any consequences down the line, including sourcing a replacement motor or custom fabricating a replacement part. Whether we do the work onsite or in-shop depends on what works best for you and your equipment.
Preventive & predictive maintenance
We combine the latest in technology with years of experience with equipment of all sizes to maximize your uptime and give you the information you need to make planned service, recondition and replacement decisions. Our maintenance services range from gearbox oil analysis and laser alignment to vibration analysis and thermal imaging. We can even create a customized online asset management database for your electrical inventory. Because we know your plant and your equipment inside and out, you can trust us to go about our business without hurting yours.

No one at Duke truly punches out. Our sales guys have been known to head to the shop in the dead of night to get parts off the shelf and deliver it to our customers. And when there’s a major crisis, it’s all hands on deck. We respond quickly and with the right expertise to emergency calls, regardless of the day of the week or hour of the day. You’ll have someone on the phone in 30 minutes and onsite as soon as we can pull on our workboots.
Online asset management
Simplify your life and improve your plant’s productivity with our online electrical asset management platform. If you don’t already have an online database, Duke’s platform can be your one and only. If you already have an inventory management tool but don’t feel confident in the information it contains, our platform becomes a secondary system you can trust. We custom develop your platform by putting hands on every one of your assets. Once the system is complete, you can log in to your database from anywhere to find a motor’s location, its critical specs, part numbers, service history, purchase orders and more—all in real time. Scan our almost indestructible mylar barcodes to update your system or enter information manually.Get a free demo
