ROHNERT PARK – DC Power Systems is in growth mode, bulking up its staff and product portfolio under Japanese owner Itochu Corp.
The leading distributor of clean-energy products in the Americas has sustained revenue growth of 50 percent for the past two years. Projected revenues for 2010 are more than $200 million.
Recently moved from its Healdsburg digs into 30,000 square feet of office and warehouse space in the Sonoma Mountain Village in Rohnert Park, DC Power has added 55 employees in the last six months. According to vice president of marketing Chris Phipps, at least 20 more will join the staff of 140 before the end of the year.
"As a frame of reference, when I joined the company in late 2006 we had 26 employees," he said.
