About Nuvera
Nuvera Careers
Nuvera was formed in April 2000 through the merger of Epyx Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Arthur D. Little, Inc., of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and De Nora Fuel Cells, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gruppo De Nora of Milan, Italy. The merger brought together 10 years of fuel processor technology from Epyx and 10 years of fuel cell stack technology from De Nora, as well as a wealth of knowledge, know-how, and expertise in chemical reactor design, electrochemistry, and system integration.

Notable in the company's achievements is its recognition as being the first company in the world to successfully demonstrate a fuel cell system operating on gasoline in October 1997. Featured on Good Morning America, this ignited a firestorm of hydrogen development worldwide.

Today, Nuvera Fuel Cells is a global leader in the development and advancement of multi-fuel processing and fuel cell technology. We believe that in the next decade hydrogen will be present in day-to-day society, and fuel cells will be the power of choice. Our mission, as a clean energy conversion business, is to create and develop innovative technology solutions for power systems, to design and develop power systems focused on end-use customer needs, and to manufacture, market and service power system products delivering value to customers.

Our values, which guide us toward our mission and goals, are integrity, teamwork, diversity, innovation, and customer focus.
