FCX Systems Core Values
Established by senior management, our core values were developed as the foundation of everything we do. They are critical to our success and are a reflection of who we are and how we work together.
Unparalleled Customer Service
Two of FCX’s founders and owners – Matt Howell and Allen Wright – designed the first solid-state 400 Hz converter for the commercial aviation market while working for their former employer. The two engineers 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 Systems name and became the Jetpower and later the Jetpower II units sold throughout the United States and around the world by Jetway. After FCX was founded, the first FCX unit produced was actually the third generation of solid-state converter designed by Howell and Wright, which is why the FCX converter offered superior 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.
