The U.S. Motors brand, under the ownership of Emerson Inc., has long been recognized as a trusted, high-quality electric motor. Recently Emerson sold U.S. Motors to the Nidec Motor Corporation. The Nidec headquarters is located in St. Louis, MO. As part of the transition in ownership, U.S. Motors products manufactured after September 30, 2011, will carry only the U.S. Motors brand logo on their nameplates. In addition, products nameplated with the Emerson logo and produced by the Emerson Motor Company will continue to be supported by Nidec Motor Corporation.
