Unparalleled Customer Service
Two of FCX’s founders and owners – Matthew Howell and Allen Wright – assisted with the design of the first-ever solid-state 400Hz frequency converter for the commercial aviation market. This was accomplished prior to the creation of FCX while working for their former employer. Both men were part of a small team headed by the Project’s Chief Engineer – George Phillips, who served as a mentor to both Howell and Wright. That team designed, constructed, and modified units that were 40 KVA, 60 KVA, and 90 KVA in size. These units were marketed and sold under the Jetway name and became the JetPower and JetPower II units sold throughout the United States and the world by Jetway. After FCX was founded, the first FCX unit produced and designed by Howell and Wright was actually the third generation of the solid-state converter. That is why the FCX converter provided superior quality and performance from the inception of FCX.
In 2016, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker presented FCX Systems, Inc. with the President’s “E” Star Award for Exports at a ceremony in Washington, DC. The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.
