Technical Field Services
The History of Technical Field Services (TFS)
TAW® Custom Equipment developed Technical Field Services in the mid-1990s, to test CE-built switchgear before it was released to customers. At the time, the group, known as TFS, also helped with equipment field installations.
TFS quickly evolved from installing and servicing TAW switchgear to working on all of TAW customers’ switchgear. By 1999, our TFS team had become so adept and successful, they split from the Custom Equipment division and moved to their own space in Lakeland.
As demand for services continued to grow within the next year, field technicians were being pulled out of Tampa to work in Lakeland, and the switchgear field service division completely moved out of CE in Tampa and into the Lakeland facility, where there was a fully functional team to assist with both mechanical and electrical needs.
Their last move, to bigger and better facilities, was to Swindell Road in Lakeland. This is the Headquarters for TFS and is expanding to other locations such as Miami, Tampa, and more to come.
