Description

We are looking for motivated individuals seeking a career in sales. This position is for our APC Schneider Electric Division within our company.

Who is APC

For nearly four decades, APC has become the industry-standard for reliable power and physical IT infrastructure. Now the leading name in IT departments large and small and among our vast community of channel partners, our history of innovation has pushed our products into the global spotlight with infrastructure, management, and data security solutions protecting organizations around the world.

Incorporated in 1981, the American Power Conversion Corporation was established with a focus on research and development of solar electricity. Formed by three electronic power engineers from MIT, APC 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, APC stock was made available for public trade.

1989 brought the introduction of the award-winning PowerChute® software which revolutionized power management; as well as product sales through two major distributors, Tech Data and Ingram Micro. In 1990, APC continued to introduce superior products such as the Smart-UPS® line, now recognized as the industry's premier network power protection solution. That same year President and CEO, Rodger B. Dowdell, Jr., was named New England ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ by Inc. Magazine.

Throughout the 1990s APC entered other markets with 155 new products such as SurgeArrest® surge protectors; Matrix-UPS®, the industry's first modular UPS; a new generation of Smart-UPS; the company's first Back-UPS Pro® models; and the Symmetra® Power Array™ which revolutionized the industry with redundancy, scalability and serviceability in a single solution. These product developments, the opening of two international manufacturing facilities (Galway, Ireland in 1994 and the Philippines in 1996), as well as the acquisition of Systems Enhancement Corp. and Silcon A/S, drove APC's annual revenue above the $1 billion milestone in 1998.

APC entered the residential tech market in 1999 with PowerShield, a solution for the growing broadband needs of cable and fixed wireless applications in homes. The company then launched into the new millennium with three strategic acquisitions opened the DC-power market for communications equipment; the cable and connectivity market for home and business IT applications; and the precision cooling market for data centers and communications equipment. After acquiring ARRIS in 2001, APC further expanded its broadband networking power capabilities. In 2002, APC introduced PowerStruXure™, its first piece of network-critical physical infrastructure (NCPI) architecture, which revolutionized data center power management. That same year, the company was named to the NASDAQ-100 Index, a list of the 100 largest non-financial stocks on
