Prolec GE implements strict design and manufacturing standards for our products to be highly reliable and to have a life span of more than 20 years. Additionally, each of our distribution transformers undergo a series of tests that must have a satisfactory result before they can leave our facilities, complying with all the applicable standards.

After assembling the core and coil, the first tests take place. Turn ratio is measured on the rated voltage connection and on all tap positions listed on the nameplate. This test checks if the turn ratio between the high and low voltage is correct and meets the standard. The polarity and phase relation tests on the rated voltage connection are completed to make sure the windings comply with the additive or subtractive configuration requested by our customer.

Without a doubt, all new changes in the local, regional and global macroeconomic environments require us to adjust our short-, medium- and long-term strategies to make sure stakeholders keep considering Prolec GE as a sustainable enterprise.

This year has been no exception; volatility continues to impact macroeconomic variables / factors affecting our performance. For example: from January to July, 2017 the peso - dollar exchange rate accumulated a 14% appreciation, the copper base carries a 10% inflation. Also, annualized inflation in Mexico reached just over 6%.

Just as blood test analysis are used to identify health issues, dissolved gas analysis (DGA) in the transformer’s oil can be useful for the early detection of possible failures before they appear.

In every business in the world, the main purpose of a Supply Chain system is to align internal operations to customer service and satisfaction, ensuring the benefit of all parties involved. But when businesses create different ways of meeting their customers' needs, and those strategies become a business differentiator, it’s always exciting news! These are the reasons that prompt a customer to choose a specific vendor. This is how competition starts.

A Company’s or Business’ Supply Chain can be, without a doubt, a differentiator. That is, one of the reasons leading a business to compete, or to be “an option” for its customers; When the Supply Chain provides the business with the features other competitors do not have, its goal turns out to be same as the business’s goal.

Since the age of Thomas A. Edison and Nikola Tesla, more than 120 years ago, we didn’t experience such massive change in the energy industry as the one we are facing today. At that time, the electric system was designed for Direct Current at a very low scale (1882), supplying power to a few users and lighting up spaces with the recently developed electric bulb; few years later, in 1896, the Alternating Current model was presented by Westinghouse Electric (with the collaboration of inventor Nikola Tesla). This new model allows transmission of electric power to greater distances at high efficiency levels.

It was then when the electrical power system, as we know it today, was created. It is clear that the system has been in continuous development since then.

We are starting a new year full of uncertainty. We are currently facing an unpredictable macroeconomic situation, involving changes in foreign politics, and an increasing inflation in our local market. However, we must stay calm and remind ourselves that, especially under difficult circumstances, we should always keep our commitment to capitalize on new growth opportunities through innovation and operational excellence.

The fact that we are the largest transformer manufacturer in the continent is not a coincidence. There are four central pillars supporting our 40 years of uninterrupted growth: Customer-Oriented Strategies, Operational Excellence, Innovation, and Human Capital.

To our clients, I want to assure you we are more focused than ever in not only meeting, but exceeding your expectations. We have the talent and management means to keep our products and services always ahead, as required by the market dynamics.
