Electrical and Telecom Utility Equipment

Fiberglass Transformer Box Pad from MFGAs materials and processes improve, the use of composites for electrical and telecon utility applications is expanding. The durability, strength/weight ratio and natural fire-retardant attributes make reinforced plastic an outstanding solution for many electrical utility products.

Customers looking for expertise in material technology to advance new products find that we offer not only the technical knowledge, but also know-how to recommend ways to optimize the design for efficient manufacturability.  We bring 30+ years of producing economical, extremely durable electrical good to bear – for your success.

MFG possesses many formulas for a variety of electrical applications and can also formulate a custom solution for your specific product needs.

Customers are discovering our PRiME process to be a Best in Class choice for transformer housings (over SMC and hand lay-up processes). PRiME allows for thinner vertical walls with better strength, which produces better compressive strength for underground applications. Cycle times still provide for high volume applications.
