WAI Celebrates Transpo Electronics’ 40th Anniversary

To commemorate this event, the company will be launching its latest-generation mass air flow sensors and voltage regulator technology.

Transpo Electronics, a wholly owned manufacturing subsidiary of WAI, celebrates its 40th anniversary this month. To commemorate this event, the company will be launching its latest-generation mass air flow sensors and voltage regulator technology. This expanded coverage in these high-technology product categories exhibits WAI’s investment and commitment to being first to market in complex electronics within the vehicle, according to the company.

Transpo Electronics was founded in 1978 by Frank Oropeza, a former Martin Marietta electrical engineer, as a home-based business. Oropeza saw a need in the automotive aftermarket for quality domestic products that rivaled overseas manufacturing pricing. In 1981, Transpo also realized that technological changes in the industry would require smaller, more advanced packaging concepts, and invested into thick film technology. In 1987, it moved into a new 57,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. In 1992, it expanded its facilities to a total of 77,000 square feet and in 1997, Transpo completed the expansion of its world headquarters in Orlando, Florida, increasing its state-of-the-art facility to more than 125,000 square feet.

In March 2004, Transpo was acquired by Wetherill Associates Inc. (WAI) of Royersford, Pennsylvania. WAI says the merging of the two companies created the perfect marriage of product offerings and business disciplines that allows it to offer its customers the best products at the best prices with fast, economic delivery.
