Global & Local Supply
The new century has seen a significant expansion in Tranter’s manufacturing capacity globally, establishing ISO-certified local manufacturing in all regions of the world. Our guiding vision is to manufacture close to our customers and thereby reduce lead times and transportation costs, in efficient response to customer needs. In all, manufacturing floor space has grown significantly by addition and expansion during the century’s first decade.
Manufacturing of heat exchanger plates is the core of our operations. In all locations, Tranter can manufacture plates out of virtually any mild or high alloy that can be worked. Throughout our global manufacturing base Tranter has added six automated and two manual hydraulic presses since the turn of the century, for a total of 12 plate presses globally. This provides flexibility and expanded capacity to supply our global customer base.
Also added has been advanced welding and metal finishing technology; available welding processes include SMAW, GTAW, GMAW, sub-arc and fully automated robotic PAW. Tranter is presently the only global supplier able to manufacture shell & plate thermal element subassemblies in North America, Europe and Asia.
