Bryan Rogalski

Meet Bryan, our newest addition to the Motor Sales team. While he may be new to the sales game, he’s certainly no stranger to the inner workings of machinery. Hailing from Alberta, Bryan brings with him a wealth of experience in a variety of trades and industries. With his quick learning abilities and passion for problem-solving, he’s eager to collaborate with our team and customers to find innovative solutions that help minimize production downtime. Get ready to be impressed by Bryan’s diverse skill set and fresh perspective!

Bryan has 3 talented daughters that pretty much keep him and his wallet busy all day every day – you may run into him at a figure skating or gymnastics competition or at a live musical performance where his daughters will be the star, not him.

Andrew – Electric Motor Systems Technician

Andrew Buckholtz Head Shot

Andrew is one of our Electric Motor Systems Technicians and according to his youngest child, “he does stuff”. She is correct, he DOES do stuff. Even more accurately, he works on motors and fixes things (according to his other child). Again, not wrong. Andrew is very versatile and adds huge value to our team with his multifaceted skillset.

Andrew is a father, obviously, and the most important thing for him is spending time with his family and making sure they are taken care of.

Jeremy – Mod Lead Hand

Jeremy Buck - Mods Lead Hand

Jeremy is more of a mystery than Andrew! Google the name Jeremy and you will come up with many results – Jeremy Renner, Jeremy (the hit song from Pearl Jam), but no Jeremy from Universal Rewind. He likes to ride his motorcycle to work in the summer – it is a pretty sweet ride too!

Kody – Modification Technician

Kody Reid Head Shot

Kody has just finished up his first year of the Electric Motor Systems Technology Program at SAIT and is looking forward to putting that knowledge to work over the coming months and years.

Outside of work, Kody keeps himself busy by spending time with his girlfriend and her two boys, reading, snowboarding, bowling, and playing video games.

Pepito, or Bong as his friends affectionately call him, is one of our Motor Systems techs. He works in our Modifications Department where he works on the many modifications for Baldor and TECO motors.

Sarju spent his early years in the Fiji Islands before relocating to Edmonton AB, where he has resided for most of his life. A proud father and grandfather of three, he is a dedicated and hardworking individual. Sarju began his entrepreneurial journey as an Electrical Motor Mechanic and quickly became certified within a few years. Prior to settling in Edmonton AB, he had the opportunity to work in Australia and New Zealand.

Sarju’s mechanical aptitude, creative problem-solving skills, and troubleshooting abilities are impressive. He enjoys watching sports, particularly the Edmonton Oilers, and was an avid traveler in his youth. Cooking and spending quality time with his family are cherished pastimes for him.

Scott – Parts Driver

Scott is our man on the road – picking up or delivering motors and parts to customers. While behind the wheel of one of our trucks, he likely has the stereo cranked, but you won’t hear any rap or jazz if you are sitting beside him at the lights!

Scott is an avid woodworker and enjoys tinkering on home projects or enjoying the outdoors while camping, fishing, or quadding. Earlier in life, Scott aspired to be a pilot but life got in the way and he decided to travel North America with someone else in the pilot’s seat.
