APC UPS UPS
APC was founded in 1981 by three MIT Lincoln Lab electronic power engineers. Originally, the engineers focused on solar power research and development. When government funding for their research dried up, APC shifted its focus to power protection by introducing its first UPS in 1984.
In 2007, Schneider Electric acquired APC and combined it with MGE UPS Systems to form Schneider Electric's Critical Power & Cooling Services Business Unit while in 2011, APC by Schneider Electric became a product brand only, while the company was rebranded as the IT Business Unit of Schneider Electric.
With so much history and presence on the UPS world stage, APC forms part of NSSE stable offering for Uninterruptible Power Supplies.
