The Marathon® brand traces its history back to 1913 when a group of local businessmen founded the company in the small community of Wausau, Wisconsin. The brand’s first product was an innovative, single phase 115VAC, 1/4 horsepower washing machine motor. That first customer has remained a loyal customer for over 104 years. Today, they design, engineer, and build motors from 1/4 to over 5000 horsepower with voltages from 120VAC to 13.8kV. Their NEMA and IEC motors are used globally in both commercial and industrial applications.
Over the years, the Marathon® brand has earned a reputation for dependability and quality in diverse applications. From variable speed motors used in commercial settings, and motors used for pumping to high speed extruders, to “Mission Critical” motors used on ice breakers in the Arctic, a Marathon® motor is the right choice. When the motor nameplate says “Marathon,” you know you have a “Motor for the Long Run“.
