CGE (Compania General de Electronica S.A. de C.V.), was
founded in 1960
to manufacture electronic and electromechanical components.
In the 1970’s
CGE was acquired by CENTRALAB, a subsidiary of Philips North
America, resulting in tremendous synergy that led to CGE’s
leadership in the electronic ceramic products in the Americas.
From 1986, being
a 100% Mexican Company, we expanded product lines from electromechanic
(potentiometers and switches) to electric components by
adding motor run and lighting capacitors.
our products were sold in 28 countries.
In 1999 the
capacitor division of CGE was acquired by Aerovox Inc. All
Motor start capacitors manufactured in the corporation were
moved to Mexico City. We became Aerovox de Mexico, a subsidiary
of Aerovox Inc.
CGE's electromechanical division continued
to manufacture potentiometers, switches and resistors. These
products are exported to Central and South America as well
as a distributor network in the United States. CGE became
Diseno y Metalmecanica (DyM).
CGE, the original investor, bought back
the Mexican operation in 2002 after Aerovox’s financial
restructure that ended in Chapter 11. The company is renamed
as Nueva Generacion Manufacturas (NG).
NG buys Barker Microfarads Inc. and consolidates itself
as “The best solution for AC Motor Start Capacitors” worldwide
by offering the broadest line of capacitors to choose from
with the highest standards in the market.
By focusing in service, quality, new products, R&D,
and continuous improvement, NG will continue to be the benchmark
for other companies to follow.
NG buys assets of Norcap, Ltd, related with the Case Molding
Norcap, Ltd. manufactures a broad line
of phenolic (plastic) products sold to customers in the
manufacturing industry. It is located in Gastonia, North
NG buys all equipment and inventory related to AC Capacitor
Division of Mallory AC Capacitor LLC. Mallory transferred
all inventory, equipment, designs and process technology.
The transaction included a license to use the Mallory trademark
for motor starts, one patent and copyrighted material related
to its motor start business only.
Both NG and its affiliate, Barker Microfarads,
have been in motor start manufacturing business for many
years and are even better positioned now to service the
capacitor requirements in the market.
NG reached an agreement to purchase Commonwealth Sprague
Capacitor, Inc (CSCI) in its entirety.
CSCI is a leader in the production of
oil-filled metal case motor run and power factor correction
capacitors in North America. It manufactures and internationally
trades AC capacitors and power factor/energy savings products
for industrial markets. It’s products includes single phase
AC capacitors for motor run, lighting, filtering, and general
purpose applications as well as 3-phase power factor correction
cells for use in power factor correction and harmonic filter
assemblies. CSCI is currently manufacturing their capacitors
in Juarez, Mexico.
In December 2006,
NG inaugurated NG Asia which is the latest manufacturing
facility of NG; it is located in Gaoyou on Yangzhou Province,
380 Km from Shanghai China, which is ready to manufacture
capacitors since December 2006.
In an initiative based on “being near
our clients” and following them to their manufacturing facilities
no matter where, NG will service its key and most important/strategic
clients from this facility. This decision is not only based
on cost related issues but in meeting shorter lead times
and performing better logistics practices to surpass NG
current and potential client expectations.
Every single capacitor manufactured in
NG Asia posses the UL certification. There will be not a
single quality difference between a capacitor manufactured
in NG Asia to the ones NG manufactures in its other plants
located in America. This certification and quality standards
possessed by NG Asia will offer huge tranquility to its
NG philosophy and strategy is to manufacture
Start Capacitors that meet top quality standards of America
(EIA 463) and Europe (BS EN 60252), which we considered
as one of various differences against all our competitors
located in China.
