Regal Beloit

Regal has long been known as a company where talented people want to work.

Regal is proud to say that their employees treat each other with mutual respect and dignity. They believe that no matter how large they grow, each employee can make a difference.

They value a workplace where bureaucracy is discouraged, entrepreneurial thinking is fostered, and decision-making is streamlined by an “open-door” management style.

Regal is dedicated to community service, making a positive difference in the communities where they live and work.

Regal is a leading manufacturer of electric motors headquartered in Beloit with facilities in Europe, Mexico and Canada. It was founded in 1955 as Beloit Tool Corporation, and began operations in a converted roller rink. In 1961, it moved its facilities to South Beloit and in 1969 changed its name to Regal Beloit. Regal has primary locations in North America, South America, China, India, Europe and Asia Pacific. In the 1980s the company expanded its product line with a series of acquisitions of smaller companies, and in 1991 its headquarters were moved to downtown Beloit.

Regal’s transformation into a more global manufacturer of motors began with the 2004 and 2005 acquisitions of GE’s Commercial AC and HVAC motor businesses which had combined annual revenues over $600 million. By year end of 2005, the company had record sales exceeding $1.4 billion, and in the company’s quest to continue to grow, achieved annual sales in 2012 of $3.1 billion, more than a 77-fold increase from 1980 sales.
