SynQor's total commitment to quality, customer satisfaction and continuous improvement drive our business processes and lay the foundation for our success.


SynQor was founded in October 1997 by M.I.T. professor Dr. Martin F. Schlecht, who believed that a technology known as "synchronous rectification" would revolutionize the decades old industry of DC-DC power converters. The introduction of SynQor's first open-frame, high-efficiency power converters in 1999 garnered widespread industry attention and praise. SynQor promptly began full scale manufacturing in its original Hudson, MA, facilities and soon expanded their reach across Europe and Asia. Our expanding product line grew as fast as our list of customers, allowing SynQor to achieve critical mass and build on our early success.

Today SynQor operates from its new 102,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters in Boxborough, MA. Our manufacturing facility is ISO-9001:2000 certified and offers an exceptional illustration of U.S.-based manufacturing that incorporates state of the art automation technology and quality control. Our broad product line now includes thousands of part numbers, which serve a variety of diverse industries and applications.

SynQor continues to thrive by adhering to our founding tenets of providing best in class performance, quality, reliability and service. Our customer focused, process-centered organization is designed to deliver operational excellence throughout the company and incorporate continual improvement for all our business processes. By fostering innovation we continue to redefine industry expectations for quality and reliability metrics, in order to support a lowest cost of ownership model.
