Frost & Sullivan recently published a report which identifies Maxwell as “steering the growth of the market through their unique strategies and noteworthy leadership.”
Maxwell was chosen as a Mover & Shaker for its ongoing dedication to “curbing the cost of materials by efficient sourcing mechanisms as well as developing low cost materials and designs,” According to Frost & Sullivan, this has in turn, leveraged the company’s production resulting in increased market penetration.
“The recognition as a ‘Mover & Shaker’ by a top analyst IT firm, validates the strength of our solution and our leadership position in the marketplace, as well as stresses the importance for ultracapacitors in improving or taking the place of batteries,” said Dr. Richard Balanson, Maxwell’s president and chief executive officer. “Maxwell will continue to grow as the leader of the ultracapacitor market, through improved product lines and service offerings. Our end goal is to obtain the cleanest, most reliable and efficient power and energy solutions to meet the worldwide demand.”
A question and answer interview was recently held with Mike Sund, vice president of communications and investor relations for Maxwell, and Frost & Sullivan analyst, Anu Cherian. The interview discussed Maxwell’s plans for the future, current marketing trends, industry challenges involving ultracapacitors, and competitor relations. The report was published on June 29, 2006.
Maxwell recently introduced its new “Quick-Turn” BOOSTCAP(R) ultracapacitor module program that offers custom-configured, multi-cell energy storage and power delivery solutions for systems requiring up to 540 volts. Two other recent additions include the BOOSTCAP(R) Energy and Power type “C-Cell” ultracapacitor cells and multi-cell packs which are used in industrial and transportation applications, and the BOOSTCAP(R) “D-Cell” ultracapacitor cells, packs, and modules that are used for automotive electrical power network stabilization and industrial applications. Both the “C-Cell” and “D-Cell” provide high-performance, “life-of-the-system” alternatives to batteries.
