Our Technology

MSHS facilities are equipped with the latest in repair and test equipment and include modern machine shops and turbocharger reconditioning centers. Our Florida office is also home to a high-speed engine and water jet propulsion division. Committed to a continuous improvement philosophy, MSHS also offers the very latest in laser alignment, engine performance analysis as well as filtration systems, and engine component overhaul techniques.


Opportunity, value, and change are at the heart of the MSHS story.  Starting in the early 1980s, the MSHS team (originally Motor Services Hugo Stamp) opened their offices and workshops providing dedicated engine services from their South Florida location.  Seizing an opportunity to service a large and detailed engine project, the MSHS team, working around the clock, received, dissembled, serviced, and transported the fully functioning, overhauled engines back to the client as scheduled.  The project was hugely successful and showcased MSHS’ expertise and innovation.

With success comes change, MSHS, led by owner Are Friesecke, recognized the opportunity and invested in value-based services such as in-house workshops and field services, spare parts inventory, and premier brand affiliations.  These investments paid off and MSHS continued to grow both in client transactions and industry recognition.

Seizing another opportunity, Are and his partner Ben Lozano, launched Governor Control Systems (GCS) which added control services and engineering applications to the services portfolio.  Are recognized the value the two companies could provide clients who would benefit from turnkey solutions delivered by one trusted service provider. When GCS became an authorized channel partner for Woodward, the company seized the opportunity to gain national recognition through its highly-trained and experienced field, service, and engineering teams. Driven to provide greater value, MSHS and GCS opened additional facilities where customers needed them – the Gulf Coast and Pacific northwest – while launching new divisions that provided international logistics and yacht services. 

Today, MSHS continues its history of change by unifying as one brand to provide customers with the benefits and value gained through experience and expertise.  Motor Services Hugo Stamp and Governor Control Systems’ story is not ending but is beginning its new chapter with the next generation of innovators, experts, and leaders who are collaborating to continue our success as we embark on the next 30 years!
