Attention to detail.
Some things never change.
In 1963, the electrical market underwent a groundbreaking shift. Utilities were now looking for large capacity kVA distribution class transformers—heavy-duty machinery for unique underground use, rather than traditional overhead infrastructure.
Al Bolin saw this need and, along with a handful of colleagues, founded VanTran in Vandalia, IL to provide high-quality unique solutions. This standard, of course, was paired with exceptional customer service. Since its founding, VanTran prides itself on a family-first customer mentality when delivering unique solutions on time, holding the highest quality standards.
Don Bolin, current CEO/Owner, took over the business after his father’s passing. Don has taken on his father’s torch and is leading VanTran towards even more innovation and success.
Relocated to Waco, Texas in 1974, VanTran provides solutions for large industrial, oil & gas, petrochemical, mining, transportation and renewable markets, where short delivery cycles and on-time delivery are critical for project success. What do we promise? Timely, customizable, out-of-the-box liquid filled distribution class transformers. VanTran customers deserve nothing but the best, and so that’s what we deliver…every time.
