About Applied Energy Solutions
At Applied Energy Solutions, we design, manufacture, market, and sell a comprehensive line of battery chargers for forklifts, pallet jacks, and other battery powered transportation equipment. We are the application experts when it comes to providing battery charging solutions for our customers.

Unlike other battery charger manufacturers, we design and build our own control electronic circuit boards and transformers. Our vertical integration provides us with exceptional quality control, flexibility, and speed.

We pride ourselves in making products in the USA by American workers in all levels of production. From design, manufacturing and sub assemblies including creation of transformers, power inverters, control boards, software to interconnect and finally assembly. AES has been recognized for making products in the USA from US senators in their efforts to bring electronic manufacturing support back to US based companies. This American pride is our legacy.

Applied Energy Solutions was established in 1949 in Caledonia, New York as Caledonia Transformers, a manufacturer of transformers and power supplies. Later, the company manufactured power conversion equipment for a variety of military and commercial applications. In 1979, as Chloride Electro Networks, the company evolved into its present status as a leading manufacturer of industrial battery chargers for forklifts, pallet jacks, and other battery powered transportation equipment.

Our present owner and President, Vern P. Fleming, purchased the company in 2000 and changed the name from CEN Electronics to Applied Energy Solutions in 2001. Since 2001, we introduced 5 new battery charger model lines and the battery information transmitter, refined our North American distributor network, and added 3 regional sales offices to better serve our customers.

We will continuously add to our comprehensive full product offerings for every application and tailor the proper product to your needs. We will consciously strive to provide the fastest made-to-order manufacturing in the industry. We will continuously improve by living and breathing the Power of Excellence in everything we do.
