Maxwell develops, manufactures, and markets energy storage and power delivery products for transportation, industrial, information technology, and other applications. Our products are designed and manufactured to perform reliably with minimal maintenance for the life of the applications into which they are integrated. We believe this “life-of-the-application” reliability gives our products a competitive advantage and enables them to command higher profit margins than commodity products. We focus on the following lines of high-reliability products:
- Ultracapacitors: Our ultracapacitor products provide energy storage and power delivery solutions for applications in an array of industries including automotive, heavy transportation, renewable energy, backup power, wireless communications and consumer and industrial electronics. Our proprietary electrode technology and global manufacturing facilities allow us to deliver unsurpassed value to our customers while tailoring performance to specific applications.
- High-Voltage Capacitors: Our CONDIS® high-voltage capacitors are designed and manufactured to perform reliably for decades in all climates. These products include grading and coupling capacitors as well as capacitive voltage dividers that are used to ensure the safety and reliability of electric utility infrastructure and other applications involving transport, distribution, and measurement of high-voltage electrical energy.
Founded in 1965, as a provider of contract R&D services to various agencies of the US government, the company began conversion to commercial electronics in the 1990s, and now generates virtually all of its revenue from sales of commercial products. With headquarters in San Diego, CA, manufacturing operations in Peoria, AZ, European operations in Switzerland, and sales and customer service offices in China, German, and Korea, Maxwell employs nearly 400 people worldwide.
