MGM started as a dry-type manufacturer in 1975 but quickly
introduced liquid units to it’s product line in 1982. By 1990, MGM Transformer
had grown to become the largest independent transformer manufacturer west of the Mississippi.
Into the early 90’s MGM operated solely out of it’s facility in Los Angeles, California but in 1991, to expand it’s product portfolio, MGM Transformer Company opened a 120k sqft facility in Tijuana, MX. This allowed MGM to produce Low Voltage units in Mexico, and focus it’s U.S. operations on the more complicated Medium Voltage units.
In the recent decades, there has been a significant growth in transformers for specialty applications as the electrical infrastructure changes and users have looked for ways to improve efficiencies to reduce power costs. MGM Transformer Company has responded by building an engineering staff that specializes in the application and design of these sophisticated systems with designs for Drive Isolation, Traction Duty, Grounding, Mining, and High Rise transformers applications.
