Scott Bigelow

Scott Bigelow

Scott Bigelow, President of Bigelow Electrical/ BigPower seen here in a candid photo while working on a customer quotation. Scott is the third generation to work at Bigelow Electrical and has experienced many changes in the market for the company. The days when repairing an oil burner motor have given way to larger industrial repairs. The need for reliable power, or “Power Insurance”, has increased and resulted in growth for the Standby Generator Division (BigPower). OSHA Inspection and Workers Compensation Insurance requirements have made the Hoist Division more important to customer's facility management programs. Whatever you need, Bigelow Electrical/ BigPower puts the customer in charge for motor, pump, hoist, and generator requirements.

Bob LaRue

Bob LaRue

Robert “Bob” LaRue, General Manager at Bigelow Electrical/ BigPower has extensive experience and schooling as a trained machinist, is also a certified hoist technician with years of field work experience in all areas related to repair, inspections, and installation of hoists & systems. Add that to his 20+ years in electric motor repair, including being a former motor shop manager here at Bigelow/ BigPower with the pump repair background that went along with that position, and you could quickly see that Bob is well prepared to run things throughout the facility. Bob has also been a maintenance manager for another privately held company which gained him experience troubleshooting controls, robotics, and electronic systems and working in a management related capacity. Bob’s interest in automotive and motorcycle engines over his lifetime gives him a terrific advantage in working with the standby generator technicians and solving any problems that customers contacting Bigelow/ BigPower may have. Bob understands that the customer is always the boss and looks forward to being a trusted and valuable resource for our customers.
