Thomas Wilch and High have been established in the electric motor repair and supply industry since our formation in 1947. Originally located in the South Norfolk village of Swardeston, the company relocated to 38 Europa Way, Norwich upon becoming part of the Ben Burgess group. We continue to offer a repair service to standard AC motors, pumps and fans. We stock and supply a large range of new AC motors, in both single and three-phase. In addition to this, we offer a range of AC motor starters and control gear as well as electric motor accessories such as capacitors and carbon brushes.


We carry out overhauls to electric motors, gearboxes and pumps of many brands and sizes. This normally involves changing bearings and oil seals, capacitors and mechanical seals where required. Machine work and rewinds can be carried out, all work can be done on an estimate first basis. Please call in advance for any information.
