The Continental Group of companies has been a part of the Western Canadian electric motor industry since 1981. Robert Baker, a master electrician from Alberta, founded Continental with a vision to provide comprehensive electrical supply and repair services. With its success in Calgary, Continental went into partnership with The Madison Group in Vancouver, bought Standard Electric in Edmonton, and integrated Star Electric into the Calgary facility.
Today, the Continental Group is a one-stop shop; we offer a full range of quality products and services to keep your business running now and well into the future. We sell top brand motors and pumps, including Blador-Reliance, Lafert, Leeson, and Ilgin, as well as surplus or reconditioned motors. Plus, Continental is the only master distributor of Marathon motors and the only authorized factory representative and service provider for Hyundai industrial motors in Alberta. Large or small, we can repair any motor. Both Calgary's 28,000 and Edmonton's 31,000 square foot repair facilities are the largest combined in Western Canada, dedicated to electric motor repairs. What's more, we maintain the highest levels of certification as part of our commitment to meet the foremost standards in the industry.
