Since 1932, Covert Electric Machinery has served the four states area as a third-generation family-owned business based out of Joplin, Missouri. Recently, it became clear to Glenn Stephens that his time as the business owner was coming to an end. He wanted to make sure Covert Electric would end up in strong hands committed to the community and customers that were so faithfully loved and served. With that in mind, Glenn targeted the reputable JCI Industries, Inc. team to entrust with the Covert Electric employees and customers. Thus, as of October 11, 2021, Covert Electric Machinery and JCI Industries have joined forces.
Headquartered outside of Kansas City, Missouri, JCI Industries serves the Midwest with industry leading distribution and repair of pump, motor and rotating equipment. With over 7 locations in Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, and Nebraska, JCI’s Joplin branch is located less than four miles from Covert’s facility with specialists and equipment available that are sure to provide the best service possible. JCI is a business unit of OTC Industrial Technologies. OTC is a leading industrial distributor headquartered in Columbus, Ohio with over 53 locations and 35 service shops throughout the United States.
