Since 1950, Hurst has been an integral part of life in Princeton, Indiana. Starting operations as a small family-owned tool shop; three generations of the Hurst family have maintained strong quality and high customer satisfaction as the company advanced into designing and producing electric motors. For more than 60 years, Hurst has been an innovator in the development, production and application of cost-effective solutions for your motor requirements. Hurst has grown into one of the top producers of sub-fractional motors in the world. In 2010, we became part of Nidec Corporation to combine innovative technologies for the benefit of YOU, our customers.
Now as a strategic component of Nidec Motor Corporation, Hurst's product development teams have access to all technology support functions of the world’s leading motor company. This synergy enables Hurst to introduce new innovative motor and control technologies, providing rapid solutions for your needs. The interchange of ideas and technologies between Hurst and Nidec has led to the utilization of the latest technologies available to design customer-specific applications.
Initially, Hurst’s core business focused on instrument grade timing motors and assemblies, stepper motors and controls. Today the business has grown into manufacturing low-cost, high-performance brushless DC motors for many markets, including medical, printing and computer applications.
By continually providing solutions for customer applications and developing cost-effective motors that exceed your needs, Hurst upholds the highest standards set by our founder more than six decades ago.
