1971

VTC ESTABLISHED AND INCORPORATED

During the ‘70s, our customer base and product scope became more diverse, 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 in the United States use transformers built by VTC.

 

1997

ACHIEVED ISO CERTIFICATION AND COMPANY EXPANSION

The ‘90s witnessed our entry into the demanding utility market, as customers sought to find additional suppliers for their requirements of high quality and cost efficiency. 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 manufacturing facility in Chihuahua, Mexico. This state-of-the-art, 60,000-square-foot operation, designed from the ground up as a transformer plant, has been ISO-certified since inception. Visiting customers have proclaimed it to be one of the finest facilities for manufacturing transformers in North America.

1989

CEO PRABHAT JAIN TAKES THE HELM AND EXPANDS PRODUCT LINE

Beginning in the ‘80s, our current CEO, Prabhat Jain, took the helm at VTC. Our product range was further expanded to include industrial and commercial power transformers for small power applications, including those with automatic load-tap-changing requirements, and our trademarked fully encapsulated coil UNIClad® (dry-type) transformer.

 

2003

ANOTHER FACILITY ADDED

VTC acquired its third plant from UST West in 2003. The plant can produce 230kV at 1050kV BIL, making it the best-equipped 230kV, 200MVA plant in North America.

 

2013

OPENED SEPARATE FACILITY FOR TANK FAB

A new facility was developed 11 miles from the Roanoke, VA plant in Troutville. The tank fabrication, sandblasting, and paint process were relocated to the new facility in December of 2013. The tank fabrication plant is equipped with a welding robot that delivers leak-free welds, downdraft sandblasting booth for safety, and an SP-10 finish per SSPC standards for premium paint adhesion.
