itself on the world market and demonstrating a powerful
As early as 1962, TECO motor has started exporting to
Vietnam, Thailand, and the first setup overseas subsidiary
in Singapore in 1972 marked TECO's first step of internationalization.
In accordance with economic situation in Taiwan and throughout
the world, TECO commenced overseas investment on a large
scale starting in the mid 1980s. In 1986, TECO cooperated
with Westinghouse Motor to build medium and small size
motors of Westinghouse. In 1989, Westinghouse transferred
the production techniques and equipment to TECO and formed
a joint venture, i.e. TECO-Westinghouse Motor Co., to
cover the marketing and sales of products. In 1995, TECO
acquired Westinghouse Motor Co. of USA and established
TECO-Westinghouse Motor Co. to sell motors labeled with
the TECO and TECO-Westinghouse brands.
The internationalization of TECO is on a pragmatic
basis to locally manufacture and modify the products
so as to meet the customers' requirements and needs
on the local market, and to ensure that the products
manufactured meet the requirements of different customers.
Currently, the internationalization of TECO includes
Singapore, the USA, Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia,
the UK, Indonesia, Thailand, Canada, and Mainland China,
with production and sales points. They are eager to
expand and improve the competitiveness of TECO Motor
on the world market.
