Our motor manufacturer partner, WEG, strengthens its position in Europe
Our motor manufacturer partner, WEG, strengthened its position in Europe when it acquired the EFACEC Universal Motors plant in Maia, near Porto in Portugal.
In WEG’s first European facility, 150 people make low and medium voltage motors up to 10MW. This is a great opportunity for Schneider Electric, which signed an agreement with WEG in January 2002 to supply motors to supplement its high power starters and variable speed drives: the «Altium» drive solution. This first motor manufacturing base in Europe operated by our partner will further strengthen the reputation of «Altium» with our customers and contribute to our growth.
