Founded in 1956, Powertran was an "internal" division of Weltronics, who made all of the transformers for
their automotive welding systems/controllers. Then, in the early 1980s (when vertical integration
was no longer fashionable) Powertran was sold to a pair of up-and-comers in the electrical industry.
They emulated Powertran's earlier success and continued the growth model of design/manufacturer of
transformers specifically for OEMs. Today, Powertran continues that same philosophy of slow &
steady growth with the focus on service, quality & legendary customer referrals.
