We started in 1963 with a simple idea — to create power conversion solutions to better the world
Dynapower was founded in 1963 in Detroit, Michigan (USA) to service the automotive industries’ power conversion challenges. Over the next five decades, Dynapower equipment has finished millions of car parts, keeping America’s car fleet safe, reliable and sharp. In 1989, Dynapower’s original CEO, Peter Pollak, moved the company to Vermont to provide a better quality of life for his family and co-workers. This move marked the start of a new path for the company that would enable us to solve the world’s greatest power conversion challenges.
Today, not only does Dynapower continue to provide power electronics for metal finishing in the automotive industry, but also architectural, aeronautical, medical, recreational, and consumer electronics industries. Our global footprint has expanded, charting the course for many new power conversion applications, such as helping to create clean drinking water, turning trash to energy, generating hydrogen to fuel zero-emission vehicles, recovering and recycling metals from discarded electronics, and sterilizing food. We have enabled utilities to turn off coal-fired plants, and island nations to uncouple from pollution-causing diesel generators, safely and reliably harnessing renewable energies for wind and solar. Dynapower works with the United States Department of Energy to harden and innovate our nation’s grid. We work alongside the Army, Navy, and Air Force to power the defense of our country and deter aggression worldwide. Pushing the boundaries of science and innovation, we collaborate with the world’s top universities and national laboratories.
Daily, we work toward bettering the world through power conversion. We invite you to join us on our journey to discover the possibilities of power conversion technology, and how it can have a positive impact on the lives of millions worldwide.
