In 1945, Bob and Ann Dreifus began a small electric motor rewind and repair shop and called it Antler Motor & Pump Corp.. Since then, Antler Electric Motor has grown to become one of the Tri-State Area’s premier industrial equipment sales and service centers. Our territory –and product portfolio- has expanded as we continue to offer service and sales of electric motors, pumps, fans, drives, air compressors, and controls. At Antler, we pride ourselves on our hard work, honesty, and knowledge, and we make it our priority to welcome our customers as part of our family. We fully test every product before it leaves our shop in order to be certain it performs as well as a new machine. This quality workmanship and personal attention has allowed our company to grow over the years, and we are confident these same qualities will carry us for another 73 years.
The next stage in Antler’s life is its recent addition to the Omnia Mechanical Group, just about the same time this sentence is being written (2019). In joining this family, which includes Sanitary Plumbing, Bolt Electric, and Calray Boilers, Antler places the last piece of the foundation of a truly full service product and service group while continuing to serve a variety of customers including: hotels, commercial real estate, industrial & manufacturing plants, commercial laundries, motor vehicle repair, high-rise properties, schools, hospitals, churches and synagogues.
We take the science with service of electric pumps and motors seriously, as it, like our sister services, keeps your buildings –and building- running better, faster, and more easily than ever before.
Pumps account for approximately 10% of the world’s total power consumption.
Greek scientist, Archimedes invented an apparatus called the “Archimedean screw” which lifted water through the inside of a primitive pump, turned by hand for irrigation of agricultural fields. 22 hundred years ago!
1580 the sliding vane pump was first introduced, resulting in the invention of the modern pump’s predecessor, the Piston vacuum pump, in 1650.
The first electric motor was invented by a Scottish Monk, Andrew Gordon, in 1740.
The electricity that powers electrical motor, from small to industrial, travels at more than 186,000 miles per second.
Electric motors are such a part of our everyday life, in our computers to appliances that they account for 45% of our daily electricity usage.
Some of our Antler colleagues have been with us for decades, some for three weeks. It’s a dynamic, growing organization, and every “Antlerite” is a critical part of our family. They come from every neighborhood in New York City, and proudly so.
David in his own words.
“All I know how to do is fix stuff”, says David. (Here’s the obligator editorial note. If you knew David personally, you’d know this statement is proof he’s 10X more humble than his hip-hop heroes, and that his nickname in the office is “Wiz” aka “the Wizard”. Regardless, if it’s a toaster, a complex centrifugal pump, or a iPhone, best bet is he can fix it in under an hour, or make a suggestion on how to build a better version in 5 seconds flat).
“My brother is a turbine engine mechanic, and I am a tinkerer and builder through and through. But it may not even be genetics (alone), as the thing that got me started was my first birthday present from my Dad- a 9/16” wrench. From that day forward, I was a nightmare to my mom, and a student of my Dad’s (who was exceptionally patient, and even if it took an hour to explain something to me in terms he felt were adequate to the science, he would indeed explain everything), as I would continually take everything apart. Luckily (for them), I started learning how to put everything back together (a few years into my “studies”).”
In our words…
Indeed, David is our Senior Pump Engineer, but we rely on him for even more than that, as he’s just as patient with our younger apprentices and newbies as his father was with him, and thus, has a second nickname around here in addition to “Wizard”, which is: the “Professor”. Though as he’d say himself: “life is learning and perfecting and fixing…You stop learning, you stop growing. You stop growing, your great becomes just good. And that’s not going to happen on my watch…I mentioned KRS-One before, he knew the same thing, enough to take it on as his own name: ‘Knowledge Reigns Supreme over everyOne’.” You can probably see now why we wanted to profile David on the site. But he’s one of a team of greats; we’re proud of our team.

We “live” customer centricity, it’s not just a business buzz word for us. So, over 3 generations, we’ve continually invested in education and upskilling, and adding new capabilities to more fully serve our customers. Recently, it’s in bringing Antler Pumps and Motors into the family and next in creating Bolt Electric for our electricians and customers’ electrical needs. It’s for this reason we have a new family name, Omnia Mechanical Group, to more simply describe this group of related service brands.
