VTC ESTABLISHED AND INCORPORATED
During the 70’s, our customer base and product scope became more diversified, adding rectifier duty transformers and reactors for adjustable frequency drives and NEMA RI9 extra heavy duty traction for metro rails. Most major urban transit systems today employ transformers built by VTC.
Achieved ISO Certification and company expansion
The 90’s witnessed entry into the demanding Utility market, as customers sought to find additional suppliers for their requirements of high quality and a cost efficient manufacturer. During this decade VTC moved to a new facility and its current corporate headquarters – a 120,000 square foot custom designed facility for modern transformer manufacturing. VTC further expanded in 1995 by adding a second custom manufacturing facility in Chihuahua, Mexico. This modern state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot operation, designed from the ground up as a transformer plant, has been ISO certified from the beginning. Visiting customers have proclaimed it to be one of the finest facilities for manufacturing transformers in North America.
