Management Team

The MPS team has many years of combined experience in a wide variety of battery technologies for industrial, commercial, and household applications.

Chuck Weitzel
Chuck has more than 25 years’ experience serving the electronic OEM market. In 1984, he founded Micro Power, a leading battery assembling company that offers high-quality battery packs. Under Chuck’s leadership, process controls, semi-automated production, and a strong emphasis on customer engineering and purchasing support were crucial to the company’s success. Chuck also founded Advanced Power Products, a direct manufacturer’s representative company (for Matsushita).

When Chuck sold both companies in 1995, Micro Power had 70 employees; APP had four employees. From 1975 to 1984, Chuck worked as a sales engineer for Electronic Sources (manufacturer’s representative for Panasonic Batteries and OEM industrial products), Vantage Corporation (manufacturer’s rep for National Semiconductor), and Almac/Strom (multi-line distributor with a focus on semiconductor products).

Rory has over 25 years of experience in all stages of the design, development and commercialization of energy storage solutions for highly demanding products, ranging from military applications to in-vivo medical devices. His PhD research was focused on the relationships between design of polymer batteries and their electrochemical performance, and he has led teams in Denmark, USA and Australia in the development of lithium ion/polymer technology as well as ultracapacitors, supercapacitors, and wireless power transfer.
