Dear readers,

Over the last few years, we have gradually developed from a supplier of high-quality transformer components to a comprehensive partner over the entire transformer life. On our new, interactive website, we show you the whole extent of our portfolio. We look forward to your visit.

We are honored to present our new subsidiary Hans von Mangoldt. The company develops and manufactures numerous products including iron-core and air-core chokes for reactive power compensation and drive technology. In this issue, we are showcasing some more exciting customer solutions. This includes a story on the German Maritime Police Unit utilizing active filters from Power Quality on its vessels. The composite silicone insulators from CEDASPE now also meet the specifications of ESKOM (South Africa) and the first ECOTAP VPD has been installed in a distribution transformer in Taiwan that will be used to stabilize the grid at an industrial company in Myanmar.

It is the beginning of the new year, so I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your trust and our successful collaboration in 2017. I wish you all the best for 2018 and am looking forward to new, exciting projects!

Michael Rohde
Managing Director
