northern-transformer-teamMaple, ONNorthern Transformer Corporation, a North American manufacturer of electrical power transformers, celebrated a milestone move to a new, purpose-built, 105,000 square-foot facility in Maple, Ont. on September 16.

The opening of the facility marks a major milestone in the vision of Giovanni Marcelli, Chairman of the Board, to build a leading Power Transformer manufacturer. Giovanni initiated the facilities upgrade project after his acquisition of Northern Transformer in 2012. The opening was welcomed with community leaders Steven Del Duca, M.P.P. Minister of Transportation, and Maurizio Bevilacqua, Mayor of Vaughan.

To better serve its growing customer base in Canada and the United States, Northern Transformer Corporation relocated operations and commissioned new, state-of-the-art production and test equipment. The purpose-built facility and equipment investments significantly increase Northern Transformers production capability, capacity and efficiency.

Northern Transformer has made a corresponding investment in hiring additional production, engineering and support teams to meet the growing demand for its custom engineered and manufactured power transformers.
