Electric Research and Manufacturing Cooperative, Inc. (ERMCO), a wholly owned subsidiary of Arkansas Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (AECI), recently manufactured its 8 millionth transformer in Dyersburg, Tennessee.
“ERMCO is the largest producer of distribution transformers and components in the United States,” said Tim Mills, president and CEO. “We continue to invest in expanding our output. We’re also increasing manufacturing efficiencies and developing our workforce to accelerate production to meet the nation’s critical infrastructure needs. For perspective, our 1st million took 258 months to produce, and reaching 8 million took 27 months. Moving forward, we see the potential to produce 1 million transformers each year. With our incredible team, we will make that happen.”
