To tell shareholders and employees the story of this growing company, we filmed for two weeks across Europe, Asia and North America interviewing engineers, customers, managers, sales people, designers, and manufacturers. AE's solar inverters turn the direct current from solar fields into a usable alternating current for consumers. And their power conversion products make possible the electronic thin-film applications used in smart phones, plasma TVs, computers, and even car headlamps, potato chip bags and architectural glass. What AE does is interesting. How they operate, however, is what makes them a unique company. Advanced Energy combines global manufacturing and local design and service in a way that makes them better and faster at developing products and serving customers.
