Torqeedo has revamped and expanded its service center in Crystal Lake, Ill.

The company said it can repair and troubleshoot eight to 10 motors a day in its new 50-foot-by-50-foot space.

"Our new center and computer system is a full-circle, one-stop shop for service and parts," Sven Kirchhoff, Torqeedo service and quality manager, said in a statement. "Our customers are always our highest priority. This new system helps makes the entire process, from receiving the motor to shipping it back to the customer, even more efficient."

Torqeedo has 12 certified service centers in the United States and two in Canada.
