Company History

Alpha Technologies is part of The Alpha Group, a global collective of companies that are dedicated to creating world-class powering solutions for communication, commercial, industrial and renewable energy markets. Generating in excess of $600 million in annual sales and employing more than 2,000 employees, The Alpha Group has over three (3) million powering solutions in operation globally. Our Company dates back to 1975, when our founder, and still Chairman of The Alpha Group, Fred Kaiser, recognized the need of the emerging Cable Broadband sector for task-specific powering that would improve network reliability. Since our humble beginnings, Alpha's power solutions have become de facto standards for CATV throughout North America and around the world.
