Industrial Fans, Electric Motors, Cats & Dogs

Beatson Fans & Motors Ltd

We sell, stock and repair all types of industrial fans and electric motors! We’ve been selling Soler & Palau fans and Vent-Axia fans and Breeza and Breezax fans!! We’ve been selling Rotor motors and BFM B56 motors and TEC motors!! Not to mention all the accessories like controllers and starters and inverters!!! We have a fully equipped workshop with experienced and highly qualified engineers!! We can offer a full range of repair services including rewinds, mechanical repairs, dynamic balancing, fabrication, and machining!!

Some people think that we can even repair living creatures and resurrect the dead!!!!

That’s right!!! If you are ever struggling to find us we are next to the PDSA on Newhall Road.

Even though it says BEATSON FANS & MOTORS LTD in huge letters on the front of the building we seem to get next doors customers. to date we’ve been asked to look at two cats a budgie and a rabbit! But on Friday a gentleman came in with a dead dog!!!!!

We can repair almost anything! But it’s not easy to rewind a cat and we certainly can’t bring dogs back to life!!

But If we could we would because we love all our customers and would always do everything we possible could to help!!

I wonder if the PDSA have had any motors in for repair????

Good Service

There was an article this morning on Radio Sheffield. People were ringing in on Toby Fosters breakfast show and discussing good and bad service. We’re pleased to say that when it comes to customer service we are the ‘muts nuts’!!

Free testing on all industrial fans and electric motors, free advice on all industrial fan and motor related subjects, free no obligation site visits!! competitive prices, 24 hour service, huge stocks of Soler & Palau fans, London Fan, Breeza and Breezax impellers, MultiWing, TEC, Rotor, BFM and CG motors, overnight delivery, free local sameday delivery!!

Here are a couple of examples:-

One of our customers had ten industrial fans with guards on and collected them from our works in January! Bearing in mind that all stock goods are checked before dispatch and that all bespoke fans (as were these) are run and tested before dispatch!! So, these fans left our premises in perfect working order. In June we get a phonecall; “This fans just smashed!! Impellers just disintegrated!” So immediately we sent our MD to look at the damaged fan and check the other nine! There was a small dint on the failed fan which had caused the impeller to catch and shatter and the other fans were fine. Please bear in mind it was run tested and  in perfect working order when the customer collected it and it had been in the customers’ possession for nearly six months!! But as a gesture of good will and without prejudice we thought it would be a good service to supply our customer with a new impeller and a new guard Free of Charge!!!! We could have said “well it was nearly six months ago; it’s obviously been damaged whilst in your possession!” But we’re Beatsons and we’re not like that, we give the customer the benefit of the doubt!! That’s what service is all about!!

the other example was when we built a backward curved impeller for a customer and, hands up, it started wobbling after about three weeks!! So what did we do?? We repaired and balanced his old original impeller immediately. Free of charge (we did advise that a repair was more worth while originally) and built him another new one; free of charge!! After all we promised an impeller and now he has two!! the exact words from our customer “Now, that’s a good service, thankyou!!”

It’s all about the service!!!!!

Incidentally, the company with the ten fans (who still managed to get his units to his customer on time) actually had the cheek to threaten us with consequential loss!!!! Ha ha ha ha !!!! Of course, because we believe in honesty and service, and because we are great believers in treating our customers as we wish to be treated (after all what goes around comes around), all he’s managed to do is ruin things for himself! We believe in service, but we don’t suffer fools gladly!!


We love you all !!

Why Being In Business Is Interesting:-

We have been in business since 1928…..
We have been pleasing and displeasing our customers ever since.
We have been cussed and discussed, boycotted, talked about, lied to, hung up, held up robbed etc…
Since moving in to our new premises in 2005 we have been rammed by a car, had a lorry knock down our gates,we’ve been flooded, sworn at and abused by the clientele of the PDSA who keep letting there dogs crap on our front, and more recently, evacuated due to an un-exploded bomb!!

The only reason we are staying in business is to see…

Being the Managing Director of Beatson Fans & Motors wasn’t the original plan!! Or that’s what I kept telling myself!!

As a teenager all I wanted to be was a rock star!! I did it all; learned the electric guitar, did heavy metal bands with my school friends, went to college and even got a degree in music, joined a ‘proper’ band, toured the UK and Europe and gigged every weekend for 12 years!! Until it finally dawned on me that I was working un-sociable hours, chasing little bits of money up and down the motorway and not seeing enough of my beautiful wife and fantastic daughter. So I changed my life a lot in a short space of time and I have never looked back. I play my guitar for fun now, I dont have to play what I think people might like or whatever dross is in the charts. I play what I like!! I’ve even started writing again!! But there was one thing throughout all those years of gigging that I always had to make sure I never ran out of . Guitar strings!!!!!!

A guitar string only costs about 80p. A whole packet of guitar strings costs about £5.00. The potential earnings for one night’s gigging was about £300 (less agents fees, van, overheads and tax). but there was absolutely no way on God’s earth that I was going to lose out on a whole night’s work just for the sake of 80p. A concept in engineering, manufacturing and for business owners that seems completely alien!!

How many times in this industry have you heard ” But the whole plant is down and we’re losing £3000 a day!!!!” When it all rests on one small specialized motor or a wierd type of fan, that normally takes 4-6 working weeks from the manufacturer? the cost of which is probably less than half of a days turnover? Just have a spare!! then if that absolutely vital motor or fan does fail there won’t be any disastrous gaps in trade or manufacturing!! Less stress, less hassle, more profit in the long run!!

Have a think how you could prevent the inevitable. Have a good proper think. Do I need to call Beatson Fans and Motors?? 0114 2449955 or email them even on enquiries@beatson.co.uk I think so!! 🙂

Remember! Don’t cancel the gig over a broken string !!
