This is an exciting and momentous time for Advanced Energy. Headquartered in Denver, we are a $1.4B precision power delivery systems company, employing more than 10,000 people in over 55 locations. For over four decades we have built a robust ecosystem of design, service centers and advanced manufacturing facilities that span the U.S., Asia, and Europe, providing our customers with highly efficient and precise power conversion, measurement and control solutions.
AE is on an incredible journey. Over the years, we’ve expanded our business organically and through strategic acquisitions including Artesyn, Versatile Power, Excelsys, Trek, Monroe Electronics, Ultravolt and HiTek Power Group. To augment our core precision power business, we also acquired precision sensing and control companies including Sekidenko, LumaSense and TEGAM.
Today marks Manufacturing Day, an annual celebration which shines the spotlight on career opportunities in the manufacturing industry. At AE, we fill hundreds of skilled manufacturing jobs every year. We hire engineers, technicians, and operators to staff our 14 factories around the world.
AE is led by industry veterans with an impressive record of driving innovation and growth. Our key success factors include technology leadership, high quality, and customer intimacy. Ultimately, our objective is to provide highly engineered power delivery solutions which meet the needs of our customers. We have a reputation for engineering and operational excellence, and a strong history of innovation, including more than 450 patents.
Advanced Energy builds the vast majority of its products in-house. We believe in-house manufacturing is a strategic advantage, allowing us to deliver high-quality innovative products to our customers in a timely fashion. It also enables us to protect our proprietary technology and critical know-how.
As a leading manufacturer in the high-tech electronics space, we enthusiastically celebrate Manufacturing Day 2021.
