History

Shortly after the economic reforms in China, JST was established by three entrepreneurial engineers, as the first privately owned transformer company in China. Never was there a state-owned component throughout the company’s history, and the company started by manufacturing cast epoxy resin transformers which was the specialty of one of the founding principles who was trained in the European technology. Shortly after their founding the building codes in China changed such that any building with public access needed to use cast epoxy resin transformers for environmental and safety reasons. With the financial markets in China being practically non-existent, at a time when capital was needed most to take advantage of this tremendous dose of instant demand, the company eventually was able to raise the needed capital on the US stock exchange. JST was the first Chinese company to be traded on the AMEX stock exchange and the investors were not disappointed.  This gave US and international investors a safe vehicle to capitalize on the unprecedented growth in China. During this period JST was able to maintain a CAGR of better than 30% for over a ten-year span, while constantly investing, expanding capacity, and opening new facilities. With this sustained successful run of business, JST was invited to the other US stock exchanges and eventually made the move to NASDAQ where they remained for over a decade. JST’s performance eventually outpaced its stock price, which lead the founding management to exercise a stock buyback program and   return the company  private.

China soon became the largest market in the world for cast resin transformers resulting from the change in building codes and JST was able to emerge as the predominate supplier. As is often the case in global businesses, regional characteristics allow companies to build core competencies or technologies to satisfy the requirements of a specific area, and these in turn, can be leveraged around the world creating a win-win on a worldwide basis. Such was the case with JST and their line of cast resin transformers. JST became a global supplier of cast epoxy resin transformers with capabilities second to none. JST expanded their international footprint as well by establishing manufacturing facilities in the US and in Mexico and this international expansion is a trend that is expected to continue.

As the JST brand started to proliferate, many customers encouraged JST to develop other lines of equipment as they became accustomed to the high level of quality, service, and value provided by JST products. This started with JST becoming an integrator of equipment used in conjunction with their transformers, eventually evolving to initiating product lines of other equipment and recruiting some of the top technical talent in the industry to develop this equipment.

Today JST  continues to operate under the same principals, focusing on  providing more value for customers and their stake holders. JST does not rest on past successes but looks to continually address existing and emerging markets through continuous innovation in both product design and manufacturing methodology. Whether you are a new or a returning customer you can expect that JST products are designed for value, engineered for quality, and built to last.
