Ranging from fractional hp ratings to 100,000 hp, these high-quality machines are used to drive pumps, fans, compressors, rolling mills, grinders, crushers, and a variety of other rugged applications. Our motors and generators are utilized in petroleum, chemical, pulp, paper, mining, marine propulsion, steel, electric utility and other industries throughout the world.
The Westinghouse Motor Company (WMC) was established in 1988 as a joint venture between Westinghouse Electric and TECO Electric and Machinery Co., Ltd. Under this arrangement, WMC designed and manufactured large, custom AC and DC products at our Texas facility, whereas, less custom products were manufactured by TECO's modern manufacturing facilities in Taiwan and Malaysia with WMC providing design, drafting, final assembly, and testing for such products. WMC marketed, sold, and distributed these products throughout the North American market under the Westinghouse Motor Company name.
In 1995, TECO's role changed from investor/ supplier to owner/ supplier with the acquisition of all Westinghouse Electric Corporation shares in the joint venture. At this point in time, TECO made a decision to manufacture more standardized products in Round Rock in order to reduce lead-time to support the local market. This resulted in a significant investment in the Round Rock facility by the parent company.
In 1997 the decision was made to change the company name from Westinghouse Motor Company to TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company (TWMC) in order to start promoting the TECO name in the North American market. Concurrent with the name change, TWMC made a long-term commitment to provide service on TWMC and other manufacturer's motor and motor related products. The TWMC Service Division was created to focus on sales, customer service, product re-design, engineering and problem solving.
In 1998, TECO American was acquired by TWMC and all TECO motor operations in the USA were consolidated into TWMC with the resultant expansion of the product lines to include purchase/ resale of NEMA T-frame motors and TECO Designed motors. This gave TWMC responsibility for sales, marketing, and distribution for TECO products in the USA.
In 1999, TWMC opened a Controls Division in Round Rock to assemble Variable Frequency Drive products and distribute motor soft-start control products under the TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company name.
Today, TWMC is in a unique position of being able to provide quality motors, generators, drives, and power solutions, all from our headquarters in Round Rock, Texas. This capability, combined with our global manufacturing resources, uniquely position the TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company to serve all our customer needs and realize a healthy return on investment to our parent company.
TECO-Westinghouse Motor Company is committed to serving the needs of our customers BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE by providing products and services that meet requirements, are delivered on time, and are priced to provide superior value. This is achieved through excellence in everything we do. Each task is performed in exact conformance to requirements, and precise processes and systems assure error-free performance in every activity of the business. Our focus is to exceed customer expectations.
The products that we supply to the world's industries are manufactured in total conformance to customer requirements and to our own meticulous quality standards. New products that are developed meet or exceed identified market requirements. However, this Quality Policy is not limited to the product itself. Technical and administrative practices also conform exactly with approved procedures. QUALITY IS THE CORE VALUE OF OUR BUSINESS.
The management team of each Staff Department is visibly committed to and personally involved in the quality improvement process by establishing quality objectives and periodically reviewing these objectives for continuing suitability. The management team assures that requirements are stated clearly and completely, and that they describe exactly what is needed. They also provide the necessary training and equipment, establish measurable guidelines, and define priorities for continual quality improvement.
Quality excellence also depends on personal job performance. Each employee recognizes the specific product or service that is being supplied to the next person in the process - the internal customer - and, every time, strives for exact conformance to that customer's quality requirements. We will not knowingly settle for less than exact conformance in anything we do. We will insist that action be taken to correct system deficiencies which keep us from meeting these strict performance measures; and we will eagerly make use of new tools provided for continual quality improvement.
