ICC International and Cortela Carbon just announced a new alliance that will give Australia and Southeast Asia vastly improved access to commutators and General Electric motors and parts in the industrial space.

As the OEM supplier of commutators to GE and as the only GE industrial motor distributor in North America (as well as being a GE supplier) ICC has signed an agreement with Cortela Carbon to bring all GE and ICC products to Cortela Carbon’s serviced markets, the company announced in a press release e-mailed to Electrical Apparatus October 15.

“ICC International has partnered with Cortela Carbon in Australia. Cortela is the premier distributor of carbon brushes in Australia and Asia. Beginning November 5th they will be traveling, promoting and distributing ICC OEM manufactured commutators. This is a huge growth opportunity for ICC, one we are extremely excited about. Our CEO, Laura Lyke will be presenting on this partnership at the EASA conference in Hobart, Tasmania this November,” ICC’s Krista DiSocio told EA in an e-mail.

ICC International is based in Maryville, Tennessee, USA and Cortela Carbon is headquartered in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, with satellite operations in Perth, Melbourne and New Zealand.  The arrangement will officially begin November 5th, 2018, but initial product orders can be filled immediately by contacting John Hamlin, General Manager of Cortela Carbon.  Questions can be directed to either ICC or Cortela at the contact points listed below.
