TransTech engineers and manufactures solutions on both sides of the electrical interface for heavy equipment in the industrial and transit sectors.

In the industrial sector, TransTech engineers and manufactures the Delta Star Conductor Bar Systems for heavy duty material handling applications in the steel industry and other heavy-duty milling operations.  We also design and manufacture electrification solutions for a variety of industrial material handling applications through our AKAPP Multiconductor and RediBAR lines.  Additionally, we serve the ports, wind turbine, and bus charging markets with unique electrification solutions that utilize motor and spring driven cable reels, slip rings, and pantographs to provide electricity to moving machines.

In the transit sector, TransTech provides expertise for both the rolling stock and wayside applications by designing and manufacturing pantographs, shoe gear, contact rail, overhead catenary systems, and providing diagnostics for these dynamic systems.  We strive for excellence and seek innovative solutions to complex problems in the transit industry.

We have been providing power transfer solutions for over 55 years.  TransTech started as a small company in Pittsburgh manufacturing brush holders for DC motors.  The facility moved to the upstate of South Carolina in 1984 and we have been growing ever since.  In 1995 we became part of the Fandstan Electric Group which included Brecknell-Willis (England), Stemmann-Technik (Germany), AKAPP (Netherlands), and in 2004 we acquired the Delta Star / H.K. Porter line of conductor bars.  In 2014, we became part of the Wabtec family, organized underneath the Faiveley group.   As part of the Wabtec Corporation, TransTech is committed to safety, customer focus, continuous improvement, teamwork, and leadership; and together with Faiveley, we can provide solutions to some of the most difficult applications.
