Business Description

Industry: Industrial Products » Diversified Industrials
Compare:UTX, MMM, ARG, AP, EMR » details
Traded in other countries:AC3A.Germany,
Active Power Inc was founded as a Texas Corporation in 1992 and reincorporated in Delaware in 2000. The Company designs, manufactures, and sells flywheel-based uninterruptible power supply products and modular infrastructure solutions. Its products and solutions are based on its patented flywheel and power electronics technology and are designed to ensure continuity for data centers and other mission critical operations in the event of power disturbances. The Companys products and solutions are designed to deliver continuous conditioned (clean) power during power disturbances and outages, voltage sags and surges, and provide ride-through power in the event of utility failure, supporting operations until utility power is restored or a longer term alternative power source such as a diesel generator. As of December 31, 2013, Company has shipped approximately more than 4,000 flywheels in UPS systems, delivering more than 900 megawatts of power to customers in more than 50 countries around the world, providing more than 150 million runtime hours of operation. In addition to selling stand-alone UPS products, the Company also manufactures and sells MIS products that integrate critical power components into a pre-packaged, purpose built enclosure. These solutions offer similar customer benefits as of UPS systems with regard to power density, reliability, and total cost of ownership. The MIS products include UPS products as a component, as Company design, manufacture, and sell modular power infrastructure products that integrate its UPS products with other related equipment including switchgear and automatic transfer switch; monitoring and controls; analytics software; fire detection; lighting; security; and air conditioning. Its integrated product is sold as a complete power solution for customers including; CleanSource and PowerHouse. The Company also integrates and builds modular power and IT infrastructure solutions to specification based on customer and other third party designs. It serves as the physical infrastructure for modular data center products which are self-contained, fully functioning data centers once the customer adds its IT equipment. The Company owns registered trademarks of ACTIVE POWER, CLEANSOURCE, and COOLAIR in the United States and abroad. The Company competes in two primary industry product areas: UPS products and MIS products. Its CleanSource UPS products compete primarily against conventional battery-based UPS systems from vendors such as Emerson/Liebert, Eaton/Powerware, and APC/MGE. The Companys operations are subject to different federal, state, local, and foreign governmental regulations related to the use, storage, discharge, and disposal of certain chemicals and gases used in its manufacturing processes.
