Hackworth Electric Motors, Inc. was started by the purchase of a small shop that serviced the oil-field industry by installing motors, telephone poles and running wire to run pump jacks to produce oil.  By selling and installing so many motors for the oil industry, Jerry Hackworth realized that the company needed to repair them as well.  At this time Jerry Hackworth already had nine years of motor repair and rewind experience.  Jeff and Jerry's father, Jerry Hackworth, Sr., also helped the company by working part-time and then full-time after retirement.  James Hackworth, the oldest brother, joined the company a few years later with many years of experience with the Navy.  As years went on Hackworth Electric Motors, Inc. opened a satellite location in Medina, Ohio.  In 1998 Jeff and his wife, Brenda K., purchased the business from Jerry Hackworth.
