Our company initiated manufacturing of the NEMA-size electric motors as Reliance de Mexico (REMSA) under license from Reliance Electric Company of Cleveland, Ohio. REMSA became the first company in Mexico to meet industry's demands to locally manufacture motors for special applications including UL approved explosion proof, high torque, and multi-speed requirements.


Our company initiated manufacturing electric salient pole synchronous generators as Potencia Industrial (POTENCIA) under license from Kato Engineering Company of Mankato, Minnesota. POTENCIA became the first company in Mexico to meet industry´s demands to manufacture generators for special applications including 50, 60 & 400 hz, motor generator sets, load isolators, frequency converters, dynamic flywheel systems, and volume production of standard generators for the emerging Engine Gen-Set market for backup and emergency power.


Potencia initiated the development of cage induction and permanent magnet generators for wind applications, and in 1976 obtained a patent for the world's first direct drive permanent-magnet wind generator.


Our company initiated manufacturing large electric motors and generators up to 10,000 horsepower in 1976 under license from Parsons Peebles Electric LTD, of Edinburgh, Scotland, including Induction Squirrel Cage, Wound Rotor, and Synchronous Salient Pole machines.


Our company acquired the tooling and engineering of the Electric Products Company of Cleveland, Ohio, to manufacture special electric motors and generators up to 10,000 HP.


Our company entered into a manufacturing and engineering agreement with the Louis Allis Company, Milwaukee Wisconsin, to manufacture special electric motors and generators up to 10,000 HP.
