Incorporated in 1981, the American Power Conversion Corporation was established with a focus on research and development into solar electricity. . Formed by three electronic power engineers from MIT, American Power Conversion Corporation then opened a Rhode Island-based manufacturing facility in 1986; the company also produced its first UPS that year, the 450AT+, which received a PC Magazine ‘Editor’s Choice’ award. In 1988, American Power Conversion Corporation stock was made available for public trade.
On February 14, 2007, American Power Conversion Corporation was acquired by Schneider Electric, a multinational European corporation known globally for its expertise in energy management and automation. This led to the establishment of the Critical Power & Cooling Services (CPCS) Business Unit, which now includes the APC and MGE UPS Systems brands.
