Calnetix was formed in 1998 by its four co-founders, Vatche Artinian, Co Huynh, Larry Hawkins and Pat McMullen with an audacious goal: to change the way the world harvests and utilizes energy.
Self-described gear heads, our four founders combined their expertise in high-speed, high-efficiency electric motor-generator technologies, and advanced magnetic bearing technologies. The combination was powerful, and even more potent when Calnetix’s engineering team internally developed high-frequency power conversion technologies.
Armed with passion and its suite of proprietary technologies, Calnetix provides advanced, energy-efficient solutions for a variety of applications, often in challenging, rugged environments.
