For over eighty five years Acme Electric has been manufacturing Power Conditioning Equipment for use in industrial, commercial and OEM applications. Built on a reputation for superior service, quality and technical expertise in the transformer market, Acme is regarded as a true industry leader.
Acme Electric, an Actuant brand, is a full line manufacturer of low voltage (600V and below) dry type distribution transformers using both copper and aluminum conductor, offering an array of products between 0.250-1000 KVA. Acme Electric has over 170,000 square ft. of manufacturing in two plants; a 130,000 square ft. facility in Lumberton and a 45,000 square ft. facility in Monterrey Mexico.
Acme's product offering covers the full spectrum of applications, from commercial general power distribution and high harmonic conditions to specific industrial motor drive/factory automation systems, to low voltage landscape lighting applications. All Acme products are designed, constructed and rated in to meet or exceed the standards established by UL, CSA CE, NEMA, ANSI and IEEE.
As an active member of the Rockwell Automation Encompass Program, National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and IEEE, Acme Electric markets its approximately 1,500 products through a selective network of full line independent, regional, national and international electrical distributors that are recognized in the industry as being best in class.
In 1997 Acme became certified in the Demand Flow Technology (DFT), in doing so, the cycle time for manufacturing a transformer has been reduced to 2-3 days. This flexible process allows Acme the ability to provide standard and custom product with the responsiveness required from a manufacturer in today's just in time environment.
The Lumberton, North Carolina facility serves as one of Acme's primary manufacturing locations. It manufactures both air-cooled and encapsulated transformers covering the full range of Acme's offering in standard and custom designs. This facility also has 30,000 sq. ft of warehouse space that serves as a distribution center.
Opened in 1999, the Monterrey Mexico plant manufactures smaller KVA and industrial control transformers that are sold throughout the entire Acme Electric customer base. This modern facility located at Monterrey Industrial Park serves as the central distribution center for the Mexican and Latin American marketplace. This warehouse provides Acme a local, customer responsive logistics model for immediate shipment of products.

With these design tools, Acme provides customers with rapid turnaround of designs and prototypes of custom products.
