Electro-Mechanical, LLC is expanding its presence in Bristol and Mexico to improve efficiencies and to support the launch of new products.

Early steps for this expansion include relocating its Mexico-based manufacturing arm, MAFESA, to a new, larger site. The new 106,000 square-foot facility will provide MAFESA with additional square footage for manufacturing and distribution space for low and medium-voltage transformers.

In addition, the MAFESA expansion will provide Federal Pacific, a division of Electro-Mechanical, with additional manufacturing space to improve production capabilities in Bristol, VA. These changes will allow Electro-Mechanical to increase capacity to meet growing demand for pad-mounted switchgear and introduce innovative, smart technology for the renewable energy market.
