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.
