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
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
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.
