BELOIT, Wis. - Regal-Beloit Corp (RBC) completed the purchase of GE's HVAC/Refrigeration Motors and Capacitors businesses, which includes GE's ECM products. Now named GE ECM by Regal-Beloit, the company has announced that it is making significant investments in research, development, and capacity to bring the next generation of air moving technologies to its customers around the world.

"Thanks to the investment and support of Regal-Beloit, in the near future we'll be announcing the next generation of variable-speed ECM products that will build on our legacy of field-proven innovation."
