25 Years of World Power Innovations

On August 28th, 1991, Mihai and Cathy Chis incorporated Power Conversion Technologies, Inc.  Since then, PCTI has continued to grow and stay on the forefront of the latest technologies in power electronics.  25 years later, PCTI continues to power military and industrial customers across the globe.

PCTI began because of Mihai’s drive to be on the innovative edge of power electronics.  He was working in the power electronics division of a local firm and dissatisfied by the lack of innovation and focus on older technologies. Being a prominent expert in the field of power conversion, both Cathy and Mihai knew the story would be the same wherever he worked.  Thus, they incorporated PCTI and began working from their home like countless other entrepreneurs.

PCTI’s old shop vs. new shop

Mihai wanted to implement his new ideas with new IGBT technology, replacing old SCR technology.  Cathy, Mihai, and two employees began working from a separate shop facility added onto the Chis home.

Over the past 25 years, PCTI has evolved from the brainchild of Mihai Chis to a global leader in power technologies.  PCTI is proud to be involved in technological developments in power electronics.
