CONNECTED CITY: TSi Power
an array of industries, including
communications, security, factory
automation, hospitals and labs,
and government. "We're a technology leader," Nystrom says.
Nystrom, who joined TSi Power
in 2004, credits the company's
success to its unique technology.
For example, its automatic voltage
regulators "perform better than all
alternatives," he says. "They regulate faster and more accurately."
TSi Power also excels when it
comes to its outdoor UPS. "For
every part that goes that goes into
that system, we do it a little bit
better than [others and] a little bit
more thoroughly," he says.
He also highlights the ﬁrm's
ability to customize its products.
When a cutting laser manufacturer
needed automatic voltage regulators, TSi Power provided custom
waterproof IEC 309 connectors
on the outside of the units. "They
can use these units in food processing and other types of dirty
facilities and connect to it directly,"
TSi Power also met the needs
of an airport lighting systems
company when it provided an outdoor UPS system. The client was
concerned about the height of the
enclosures on the runway, so "we
customized that by laying all the
enclosures on the back," he recalls.
The company also moved the
mounting systems, allowing for a
low-proﬁle unit. "Those are now
installed in hundreds of airports
all over the world," Nystrom says.
IN ONE PLACE
TSi Power has some remote workers and a joint venture in India,
but the company has based the
majority of its oﬃces and manufacturing at its location in Antigo.
"We believe in having engineering and sales at the same place,"
"It facilitates communication
The company strongly focuses
on manufacturing quality, which
includes a full checklist. "We run
each product through a full test
and burn so we know that everything is going to work," he says.
But, Nystrom admits, systems
can only do so much when it
comes to guaranteeing quality.
"We have to have people who
know the product and care," he
states. "If your people don't care,
it doesn't matter what you do."
TSi Power not only looks for
employees who have talent, but
enthusiasm for the business. "If
the guy doesn't show up to work,
he's not going to care about what
he's doing fundamentally," he says.
One TSi Power employee who
has shown a high level of commitment throughout his career is
Service Manager Howard Jansen.
After starting with the company
ﬁve years ago as an assembly work-
TSi Power located its engineering and sales at its Wisconsin
base to facilitate communication and teamwork.
