ROANOKE, Va. -- TMEIC Corporation of Roanoke, Virginia, a leading designer and developer of advanced automation systems, large AC and DC motors, photovoltaic inverters, and variable frequency drives, is pleased to announce that effective April 1, 2021 it will merge operations with TMEIC's North American manufacturing operation in Katy, Texas. 

TMEIC Power Electronics Products Corporation's 42,000 square foot factory manufactures medium voltage drives along with scale solar power photovoltaic inverters and other power electronics products. The new company will be known as TMEIC Corporation Americas and the former TMEIC Power Electronics Products Corporation, will become the Power Electronics Systems Business Unit of TMEIC Corporation Americas.

According to Dale Guidry, TMEIC Corporation president and CEO, "Integrating the two businesses will have an immediate impact on our ability to improve communications between the sales and manufacturing teams and thus, better serve our clients throughout North America." 

Manmeet Bhatia, TMEIC Corporation COO, stated that, "in the future we will have the ability to expand our manufacturing capabilities and capacity and establish the Katy operation as one of TMEIC's primary North American technology centers." 

In addition to the technical and engineering synergies that will result from the merger, combining the sourcing, import-export and project coordination operations of the two businesses will improve efficiencies and reduce lead times.     

In a message to the US operations, Masahiko Yamawaki, TMEIC Group president & CEO, stated, "The ongoing growth of our overseas operations and manufacturing capabilities, particularly in the US, is a critical component of our overall global growth strategy both in the short term and well into the future.  The combining of our two US based operations will ensure that TMEIC will continue to achieve success, every project, every time."
