Hyosung Heavy Industries Corporation announces the acquisition of transformer production facility in Memphis, Tennessee

“The future is bright for Memphis and we look forward to working and growing with the local community as we expand in North America,” said Takeshi Yokota, CEO of Hyosung Heavy Industries.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (PRWEB) December 13, 2019
Hyosung Heavy Industries Corporation, known as HICO America in the U.S., announced today they have entered into an agreement with Mitsubishi Electric Power Products Inc. (MEPPI) to acquire MEPPI’s transformer factory in Memphis, Tennessee. The transaction is slated to close in the first quarter of 2020 contingent on regulatory review.
HICO plans to produce technologically advanced state-of-the-art power transformers at a much higher volume with wider distribution and application than the products previously produced at this facility. HICO has committed to hiring many of the current MEPPI Memphis facility employees and is slated to start production in the first half of 2020.
Takeshi Yokota, CEO of Hyosung Heavy Industries, recently expressed his and the company’s excitement at the thought of joining the Memphis community, “The future is bright for Memphis and we look forward to working and growing with the local community as we expand in North America.” Yokota continued, “This was a multi-faceted agreement, and we would like to express our gratitude to local and state leaders for their support to bring this agreement to fruition. On behalf of the HICO team, we look forward to working with the existing MEPPI employees, adding additional resources and continuing to be a part of the Memphis community for years to come.”
Hyosung Heavy Industries is part of Hyosung Group, which is a $13 billion conglomerate headquartered in Seoul, South Korea. Over the last 50 years, Hyosung Heavy Industries has established itself as a leader in the global power transformer business. HICO America, the company’s U.S. based subsidiary has supported its customers and partners through the supply of power transformers and other electricity transmission and distribution solutions to major utility companies for the last 20 years.

Medical Marijuana Cards Often Sought by Existing Heavy Users: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs

Press Release – updated: Dec 4, 2019 01:00 EST

PISCATAWAY, N.J., December 4, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Young adults who seek enrollment in state medical marijuana programs are often those who already use heavily rather than those with health issues that could be addressed by the drug. That’s according to new results published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
“Making medical marijuana cards easy to obtain for vaguely defined mental or physical health conditions that are not supported by any research evidence has potential for those who use more heavily to claim need for a medical marijuana card solely to have easier access,” says lead author Eric R. Pedersen, Ph.D., of the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, California.
The researchers analyzed data from a long-term study of substance use prevention in California. Participants were followed from middle school through young adulthood. The current analysis contained data from 264 participants who were 18 to 20 years old in 2015 to 2017, when medical marijuana was legal in California but before outlets in that state were allowed to sell legal recreational marijuana in 2018.
At the start, participants had to have used marijuana at least once in the past month, but none had obtained a “medical marijuana card,” which would allow them to buy and use the drug. Both initially and one year later, they were asked about their marijuana use, symptoms of depression and anxiety and physical health problems.
After one year, 19 percent of participants had sought out and received a medical marijuana card. Overall, men were 2.91 times as likely as women to have received a card at follow-up.
In addition, for every additional day of marijuana use at the beginning of the study, the odds of receiving a medical marijuana card increased seven percent one year later. After statistically controlling for confounding variables, the authors found that physical and mental health problems at baseline (i.e., the problems ostensibly one would seek a medical marijuana card for) were not significant predictors of receiving a card in that follow-up period.
“Many individuals … struggle with legitimate medical and psychological concerns that can benefit from medical marijuana,” according to the authors. In California, the qualifying conditions include chronic pain, glaucoma and seizures, among others. However, the law is also general enough that providers can recommend the drug to patients with “any other chronic or persistent medical symptom” that may limit “major life activities.”
Pedersen adds that providers should consider reviewing types of symptom management other than, or in addition to, medical marijuana and look for signs that the drug has impacted patients in a negative way.
