A Brief History of Vicor Corporation. 

Vicor Power was founded and incorporated in Andover, MA, USA, in 1981 to design, engineer, and manufacture power system components and power converters based upon their patented high-frequency power technology with zero current switchings. 

Since then, they have used their expertise and industry success to design and manufacture a wide variety of power system accessories, complete configurable power systems, and offer custom power solutions to their highly specialized client base.

By 2013 the company had grown to include 15 subsidiary companies, including VICR Securities Corporation, VLT, Inc., Vicor GmbH, Vicor Hong Kong Ltd, Vicor U.K., Vicor Trading (Shanghai), Ltd., Mission Power Solutions, Vicor Japan Company Ltd., Inc, Northwest Power, Inc., VICR Securities Corporation, Vicor France SARL, Vicor B.V., Vicor Italy SRL, Vicor Development Corporation, Converpower Corporation, and Freedom Power Systems.

How Many Employees Does Vicor have?

Currently, Vicor employs just over 1000 employees, with approximately $280,000 USD per employee.

Where is Vicor Located?

The Vicor Corporation is still headquartered at 25 Frontage Road, Andover MA, USA; however, their global reach includes offices and manufacturing capabilities nationally in California, Rhode Island, Texas, Illinois, and Oregon, and internationally in China, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the U.K. 

Their extensive network of offices allows their highly trained force of Field Applications Engineers to serve customers globally. This specialized and dedicated staff gives Vicor a unique edge while providing solutions to their existing and potential future clients. 

Not only a force in design and engineering, but Vicor is also committed to providing world-class customer service to its diverse, international customer base. 

What Does the Vicor Company Do? 

Vicor’s core competence is in the design and production of power systems for the conversion of electrical power and modular power components, focusing on high-end and high-power performance. 

Their products serve a worldwide customer base ranging from more minor, niche manufacturers of specialized electronic equipment to much larger original design manufacturers (ODMs) and original equipment manufacturers (ODMs). 

The Vicor Corporation includes an Advanced Products division dedicated to clients in the hyperscalar, data center areas of large-scale enterprise computing. These highly specialized products supply voltage distribution on computer motherboards in high-reliability data center environments, in server racks, military and defense electronic equipment, solid-state lighting applications, aviation and aerospace, autonomous driving and E.V. components, industrial automation equipment, rail, transport, and test/instrumentation equipment. 

The Vicor Brick Products division provides further specialization within the fields of defense, aerospace, transportation, defense electronics, and industrial equipment. 

All the company’s power components use Vicor’s proprietary automated processes during their manufacture at their ISO 9001:2015 registered industrial facility in Andover, MA, USA.

Another area of high competency in a specialized field is designing and producing stringent ISO 9001: 2015 compliant computerized calibration systems for measuring, testing, and inspection equipment. Vicor ensures that every instrument calibrated using their systems will have an attached label to clearly show gauge I.D. numbers, technician I.D., the date of the most recent calibration, together with the due date for the next calibration.
