Baldor Electric’s Value Formula

Baldor Electric was founded on the principle of designing and delivering value through its high-quality products that maximize productivity and minimize costs.

Its corporate value formula created 25 years ago centers on these four factors—quality, service, cost, and time.

Where value perception results from increasing quality and service and reducing time and cost. These equally important key elements are always at the core of each product they create and the service they deliver to their customers and stakeholders.


Here’s how they do it:

  • Quality, as perceived by their customers, entails collecting feedback and integrating that feedback into improving their products. For Baldor, continuous enhancement of their products and service reinforces their position and staying power in the industry.

Baldor’s production utilizes the most current tooling and testing equipment, along with rigid quality inspection procedures to ensure that each motor meets the customer’s specific needs.

  • Baldor’s corporate culture goes beyond simply responding to customer requests. The company proactively exceeds expectations by offering answers and solutions before they are needed. They maintain timely and accurate information, whether technical data or product availability.

Their customer relations are beyond transactional. They seek to educate and empower their customers through informed purchase decision-making. They provide helpful and practical details about their products to help customers enjoy Baldor motor’s performance efficiency.

  • According to Baldor’s value formula, cost is more than money. It is the long-term savings that customers enjoy by using Baldor’s energy-efficient motors. Baldor's Super-E motors are some of the most efficient-running motors in the industry. Every Super-E is balanced to half of the NEMA allowable vibration levels.

The company believes that designing and integrating energy-saving mechanisms in their product is a thoughtful and valuable way to serve their customers.

  • Quality, service, and cost don’t matter if the customer can’t get the product when they need it, and this is where time comes into the equation. Timely delivery is critical to ensure little to no downtime and lost production. Any delay translates to financial loss and disrupts plans and schedules for customers.

Baldor’s manufacturing process ensures a dependable stock supply and custom-built electric motors. Their products are available 24/7 in numerous warehouse locations across the country.

More than just a corporate statement, Baldor’s corporate value formula is their very own business philosophy and culture. Every employee of Baldor is guided by this principle and applies it in every process and unit they make. It is the “motor” that runs the company and empowers it to produce, perform, and provide value every step of the way.

Square One echoes this principle as we strive to deliver first-rate quality across our product and service portfolio, business units, and sales channels. Our team works as a unit towards the common goal of satisfying our customers.
