Company Roots

The KVAR Energy Savings Corporation (KVAR Corp.) began its manufacturing operations in 1992 in Port Orange, Florida.

The KVAR Corp. later perfected a patent protected Kilovolt Ampere Reactive (KVAR) sizing equipment to accurately and efficiently determine the reactive component of power in motors in the mid ’90′s. In other words, the corporation had a real-time method for determining the efficiency of individual motors required to do work for utility customers in homes, businesses and industrial plants.

In doing so, the corporation further developed and validated a methodology to improve the efficiency of motors by developing products, known as KVAR Energy Controllers (KVAR ECs™) that recycle the magnetic field of the motor and thereby reduce the amount of electric energy to do the same level of work. In technical terms, this meant the implementation of a methodology that could effectively optimizes Power Factor (PF) to unity or 1.0 for motor loads.

With products that save energy for utility customers and demand for electric utilities, the stage was set for bigger and better. The business really started to flourish in 2007, when two investors and seasoned businessmen joined the corporation: Mr. Steve Fish and Mr. Earl Malisoff. As CEO, Mr. Fish set-up the business so it could thrive through a network of over 500 distributors. The corporation now owned the US patent for the apparatus and procedures that allowed the sizing of the reactive component. All KVAR ECs™ were UL and CSA listed energy controllers.

The corporation outgrew successive facilities in Port Orange and was finally re-located in 2009 to the current 20,000 square feet manufacturing facility in Daytona Beach, Florida. By then, a joint venture had been established with a UK company called Advanced Power Components (APC), manufacturing was streamlined, CE certification had been secured and KVAR Group companies were onto larger markets nationally and internationally.

Starting in July 2009, plans were underway to build up the team and restructure the organization so that it could effectively deal with a fast growth sales environment, with a Now Solution’ for energy efficiency and Smart Grid. New business entities and programs sprouted out of this effort: A new Sales Channels Management Group, a KVAR National Accounts Division and a “Product to Mainstream” Project were formed.

The KVAR Group, through its leadership, and the determination and strengths of the individuals involved in producing, selling and commissioning KVAR Energy Controllers, is making a significant difference by producing products that reduce carbon footprint, energy consumption and electric demand on utilities and the power grid. From humble beginnings to a real success story that preserves our natural resources and fosters a sustainable environment. This is what we’re all about.
