Transpo Electronics was founded in 1978 by Frank Oropeza, a former Martin Marietta electrical engineer, as a home-based business. Mr. 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. This foresight gave us a head start on the competition and helped develop the aggressive style that we still practice today. In 1987, we moved into a new 57,000 square foot manufacturing facility. In 1992, we expanded our facilities to a total of 77,000 square feet and in 1997, Transpo completed the expansion of our World Headquarters in Orlando, Florida, increasing our state of the art facility to over 125,000 square feet.
In March of 2004, Transpo was acquired by Wetherill Associates Inc. (WAI) of Royersford, Pennsylvania. WAI is the North American leader in the distribution of automotive electric aftermarket components. The merging of the two companies created the perfect marriage of product offerings and business disciplines that allows us to offer our customer the best products at the best prices with fast, economic delivery.
