This brand-new facility represents a significant milestone in our company's growth and commitment to providing innovative electrical solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers. Emerald would like to recognize our alliance with the Texas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (TEC) to support their cooperative members within the state of Texas. As the cornerstone partner, TEC are largely responsible for Emerald accelerating its move to the Texas market.
“The opening of our newest facility in Waco represents a significant milestone for Emerald Transformer,” said Stuart Prior, Chief Executive Officer of Emerald Transformer. “We are excited to officially be in Texas with the addition of our eighth facility in the United States. With Emerald being based in Texas, it is important for us to also have a local repair center to support the large Texas electrical market.”
The new facility is supporting Emerald's strategy to invest in local communities.
