Electrical and Telecom Utility Equipment

Fiberglass Transformer Box Pad from MFGUse of fiberglass composites for electrical and telecon utility applications has grown exponentialy with advances in materials and processes. The durability, strength to weight ratio and natural fire-retardant attributes make reinforced plastic an outstanding solution for electrical utility products.

Customers looking for expertise in material technology find that we offer the technical knowledge and know-how to optimize their design for efficient manufacturability. We bring 30+ years of producing economical, extremely durable electrical good to bear.

MFG has proprietary formulas for electrical applications and can formulate custom solutions for specific product needs.

Customers are discovering our PRiME process to be an attractive choice for transformer housings (over SMC and hand lay-up). 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.
