Here’s a brief article from the May 18 1931 edition of the Toronto Daily Star about a company that was about to set up shop in Toronto.
I was curious, so I traced Baldor Electric in the Toronto city directories. The new Toronto branch first appears in the 1933 directory at 104 Adelaide West, and is there in the 1938 directory also.
By 1943, the firm had moved to 1103 Yonge. (This building still stands, assuming that the address is correct.) It lasted until the mid-1950s: Baldor Electric appears in the 1955 directory but not the 1958 directory. William H. Cooper appears to have been the president and general manager the whole time.
In the United States, the Baldor brand still exists, though Baldor Electric is now part of the ABB global conglomerate.
