2 TRADITION. TECHNOLOGY. INNOVATION. IEM began business in a barn on a family ranch in Fremont, CA.Original team in 1950The Barn – Original plant in 19502
3 TRADITION. TECHNOLOGY. INNOVATION. IEM grew along with Silicon Valley, moving to a 12,000 sq ft facility in 1957, expanding to 70,000 sq ft in 1980 and to 105,000 sq ft in 2003 with offices on the East Coast and Western Canada.
4 TRADITION. TECHNOLOGY. INNOVATION. IEM has been solving power distribution challenges for HP, Apple, and dozens of prominent companies since they were start-ups.A dedicated research division in Canada keeps IEM at the forefront of electrical distribution development.New LV Switchboard installation for AT&T – Hayward, CA4
5 TRADITION. TECHNOLOGY. INNOVATION. IEM pioneered the use of fully integrated CAD and manufacturing systems, beginning in 1979 with the first CAD/CAM system for electrical equipment metal fabrication.5
6 TRADITION. TECHNOLOGY. INNOVATION. IEM developed the medium voltage vacuum breaker in the 1980’s, pioneered the use of breakers on 21kV systems, and was the first to design a 3000A free standing breaker for utilities.6
7 TRADITION. TECHNOLOGY. INNOVATION. At IEM today, tradition and technology still drive innovation.Products like state-of-the-art paralleling switchgear and medium voltage fully front- accessible arc resistant switchgear are the results of this process.7
8 IEM’s Unique Parallel Manufacturing System IEM’s unique parallel manufacturing system allows complete flexibility and modification at any stage of the manufacturing process. This IEM Difference results in shorter manufacturing cycles, increased flexibility after start of production, and easy integration of special designs.
9 IEM’s Unique Parallel Manufacturing System Several manufacturing elements staged simultaneouslyAll fabrication and finish in one locationParts produced at any point after designRedundant operations for powder coatResults in:Shorter manufacturing cyclesMore flexibility after manufacturing startsEasy integration of special designs9
