Controls and Electric Motor Company (CEMCO) was founded January 3, 1983 by Wes Gilbreath on the simple premise of stewardship: Help manufacturing and agricultural customers extend equipment life through preventive maintenance, repairs and solving operational problems. Our company provides authorized service and maintenance schedules for complex manufacturing equipment, maintaining the largest inventory of belts, drives motors and controls in the Four-State region. Wes co-owns the business with his son, Eric Gilbreath, and Gene Busby. They have worked together building the business in Joplin, Missouri and the surrounding areas. In a short amount of time, our company grew into a multi-million dollar sales and service business with many more employees. We are still a family-owned and operated business. We offer outstanding service at a fair price.
