FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Roanoke’s Virginia Transformer Corp. (VTC) Enters Electric Vehicle Charging Market
Company Launches New E2V Integrated Power Solution

To Expand Its Troutville Facility; Create Two New Production Lines; Add 30 Jobs

Roanoke, Virginia – August 14, 2022 – Virginia Transformer Corp. (VTC), the Roanoke-based manufacturer of power transformers, today announced it has entered the electric vehicle charging market with the launch of its (E2V) Integrated Power Solution.

“Electric vehicle infrastructure is rapidly expanding as the United States strives to achieve net-zero emissions targets. By 2030 it is estimated 48 million electric vehicles will be in use in the U.S., supported by 30 million charging stations,” said Prabhat K Jain, CEO and CTO of Virginia Transformer.

“As the largest U.S.-owned power transformer manufacturer in North America, Virginia Transformer has a reputation for designing and building innovative solutions for flexible deployment. With 50 years of experience and the industry’s shortest lead time, the EV market is a natural fit for us, and we are actively engaged to help the country build the needed infrastructure,” he added.

Virginia Transformer’s E2V solution was designed and developed at its world headquarters here in Roanoke. A team of engineers, product development leaders, and quality control experts from Roanoke helped scope and implement the first protype. Plans call for the Company’s nearby facility in Troutville, VA to be central to production as production ramps up.

“Our team here in Roanoke saw the opportunity and how our technologies can meet the market’s needs, quickly developed a concept, and then moved to building our first protype which we’re showing to customers in the market to a very warm reception,” said Jain. “It’s exciting to see how the team seized an opportunity and are helping to address a real need in the country as the necessary infrastructure is built.”

More than a transformer, E2V is an integrated power solution that is a self-contained, plug-and-play power module. The uniqueness of E2V is the flexible configuration that enables users to build a scalable, integrated power module where they can be up and running faster than other options.

“EV infrastructure’s biggest challenges are procurement, logistics, coordination, and field integration. Virginia Transformer’s E2V solution addresses these issues by housing and connecting the main components (switchgear, transformer, breaker) into an integrated unit allowing us to quickly deliver a plug-and-play, easy-to-install, power solution supporting EV infrastructure’s rapid deployment across the U.S.,” said Jain.

“We are excited by both the opportunity this presents our employees and the community, but also helping to contribute to the reduction in transportation emissions for the good of our planet,” he added.

As a result, Virginia Transformer will transform its nearby Troutville, VA facility from being a component producer for other facilities, to a complete manufacturing facility delivering end products to Virginia Transformer customers.

To do this, the Company is in the process of building two complete production lines in Troutville that will make IPM and E2X offerings for its megamarkets businesses, including Electric Vehicle Charging, Data Centers, Battery Storage, and Bitcoin/Digital Currency. The Company anticipates beginning initial production on these lines this Fall and adding approximately 30 jobs across all functions to support the business in Troutville.

Virginia Transformer Corp Ships Record-Breaking 168 MVA Transformer with FR3

Virginia Transformer Corp Ships Record-Breaking 168 MVA Transformer with FR3

It’s always exciting and a great source of pride to break a record, but it’s a real adrenaline rush when you succeed in breaking the same record even further! Last year, we delivered a 150 MVA transformer with FR3 fluid which was the largest such unit in the US, and just recently, we outdid ourselves by shipping an even larger 168 MVA transformer with FR3 fluid!

FR3 is a natural ester fluid that’s a derivative of vegetable oils. The eco-friendly fluid, designated as ultimately biodegradable by the EPA, maintains dielectric strength at low temperatures, and serves as an alternative to mineral oil which is commonly used in power transformers. The electrical and thermal design considerations for FR3 require deep design and manufacturing expertise.

Both the 150 MVA and 168 MVA transformers with FR3 fluid are being used to move energy for projects involving large data centers which are critical assets of today’s digital infrastructure. The application requirements of data centers are demanding and must be designed to achieve high-efficiency (to drive low PUE ratio), monitoring capability at DCIM level, zero downtime, low sound, and to be “green” (environmentally-friendly) and fire-retardant.

Virginia Transformer Corp (VTC) is a leading supplier of power transformers to the data center market segment and is committed to continue our pursuit in designing the perfect transformer.

Congratulations to all our employees who helped make this specific project a spectacular success!!!

VTC 50th Anniversary Press-Release

Major Player in U.S. Electrical Power Industry Celebrates Half Century of Service

Virginia manufacturer sees market leadership, global impact add to its success

 Roanoke, Va. (June 23, 2021) – In its 50-year history, Roanoke-based Virginia Transformer Corporation (VTC) has gone from producing small power transformers to become the largest United States-based power transformer OEM with the largest engineering team in the industry – a 1,500-person team – and five plants in North America. Its customers have included Fortune 500 companies such as Tesla, Chevron, Duke Energy, Edison International, and Siemens.

 In recognition of a half century of service and looking ahead toward the next 50 years, CEO Prabhat Jain announced two new corporate initiatives created to attract and retain top workforce talent as the company strives for continued growth.

  •  An employee financial aid fund to support workers experiencing temporary unexpected hardship such as illness.
  • A scholarship award for children of VTC employees to award funds for up to four years of college education.

 “As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, I want to reflect back on the last 50 years and recognize how we have traversed obstacles and reached industry-leading milestones,” said CEO Prabhat K. Jain. “In my 39 years as CEO here, I’ve realized that it’s the people, the focus on the customer, and the technology that brings us continued success, and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished.”

 An American-owned, Minority Business Enterprise, Virginia Transformer Corporation has leveraged the technical background of its leaders and engineers, giving them the agility to react faster to changing market demands and to the needs of customers and employees. At 50 years, VTC has powered the U.S. and the world, providing transformers to the likes of Walt Disney, FermiLab, Washington Metro, and NASA. In 2003, VTC came to the aid of the Army Corps of Engineers by designing, building, and shipping six 15-MVA transformers in just six weeks for the Gulf War rebuilding projects.  

 “Going forward, transformers will continue to be at the heart and soul of transforming energy from sources of creation to sources of consumption,” said President Anoop Nanda. “The United States’ aging energy infrastructure requires many assets to be replaced to enhance grid reliability and security, and Virginia Transformer is a key player in getting that done with 50 years of expertise and innovation.”

 By 1982, when Mr. Jain joined the company as President, VTC was mired in debt and still a minor player in the industry. “I came with one expectation – to lead a business,” Jain said. Under Jain’s leadership, VTC began to broaden and diversify its customer base and product line, developing new technologies and delivering high-reliability transformers with a 60-year service life – the longest in the industry, eventually becoming the market leader that it is today.

 About Virginia Transformer Corporation

 Virginia Transformer Corporation is the largest U.S.-based power transformer OEM and provides custom-engineered power transformers for utility, renewable energy, industrial, mining, oil and gas, commercial, institutional, specialty, and export markets. Products range in power from 500-kVA to 1400-MVA and up to 525 kV. Its goal is to deliver the perfect transformer for any application.

50th Anniversary Celebrations at VTCR

Grand Celebration [September 2021]

Roanoke, VA (September 2, 2021)

GRAND CELEBRATION [September 2021]

50 years. Five decades. Half a century. No matter how you spin it, fifty years is a long time, and this is the length of time Virginia Transformer Corporation (VTC) has been on its journey to become the #1 US-based power transformer company in the country. Lead by our CEO/CTO Mr. Prabhat Jain (pictured left), what started out as a pursuit with a small, dedicated team to build the perfect transformer, VTC has grown at double-digit rates over the past several decades and now has the widest product range of power transformers, four strategically-located manufacturing plants, one fabrication facility, and over 1,500 employees, including 200 engineers.

Upon entering the Hotel Roanoke, guests comprised of government officials, local council members, Board of Directors, VTC leadership, customers, vendors, and employees could browse through an assortment of poster boards showing the company’s history and evolution of growth. Following a formal dinner, the Master of Ceremonies (and one of the original founders of VTC) Mr. John Rocovich, introduced special guests including VTC Corporate Secretary – Mr. Doug Densmore (who read a letter from Senator Mark Warner), Mr. Ben Kline (congressman), Mr. Joe Cobb (city council member), Ms. Patricia White Boyd (Vice-Mayor), Ms. Vivian Sanchez Jones (city council member), and Ms. Joyce Waugh (CEO, Roanoke Chamber of Commerce), who each congratulated VTC on its success.

When Mr. Jain approached the podium to share his thoughts and gratitude, he noted how “it has been a great honor to get the acknowledgment from the elected officials and the government saying what we do for the country is important.”  With over 200 engineers as the foundation of our company, we have been able to provide our country with solutions for special power requirements with our custom-designed transformers. Of course, none of this would not have been possible without the trust of our 6,000+ customers, our vendors (“the life-blood of our supply chain”), our employees, and our team of more than 100 sales reps located through North America. Mr. Jain then took his guests on a journey of how VTC has evolved into what it is today and spoke about the importance of education and changing demographics leaving guests pondering the question “who will be the next leader (of the free world)?”

Leading up to the grand event, separate celebrations were held at each of the company’s plants including Chihuahua in May, Rincon (Georgia Transformer) in August, and Pocatello in July. Mr. Jain kicked off each ceremony with a speech capturing the significance and the journey to this milestone for the company, its stakeholders, and our nation. Afterward, speeches were given by invited dignitaries to guests consisting of local media salaried and shop employees and included lunch and a cake-cutting ceremony. Scattered throughout the premises were nine displays describing the company’s journey for guests and members from the press to learn more about the company’s history.
