More Than Power Supplies

More Than Power Supplies

While Acopian is a leader in producing AC-DC & DC-DC power supplies, there is a far deeper story than meets the eye.

Sarkis Acopian, founder of Acopian Technical Company, became more than a successful entrepreneur. He became a true humanitarian. Sarkis Acopian passionately believed in supporting the community quietly, but with unmatched generosity.

As an immigrant to the United States, Mr. Acopian was eternally grateful for the opportunities offered to him in this country. In fact, he showed his great sense of gratitude to his adopted country by being the largest individual donor to the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC.

Pennsylvania Congressman Charles Dent, in a speech before the Unites States House of Representatives commemorating Sarkis’ life, recounted the story behind the WWII Memorial where in return for his contribution, Sarkis only asked for a seat at the dedication ceremony. Due to extremely limited seating at the dedication ceremony, he decided not to attend, giving up his seat so that another veteran could attend.

Acopian not only believes in powering things, but empowering them as well.
