TBS Electronics BV (TBS) is a privately owned Dutch company founded in 1984 by current managing director Hans Schouten. TBS was one of the few manufacturers in Europe to start with the development and production of toroidal transformers. The high level of expertise in magnetics design was further expanded into the field of electronics design, when TBS opened an electronics research and development division in 1988. Lot’s of products and product parts have been developed since then. Examples are industrial switch mode power supplies, battery chargers and inverters.
