HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MetOx Technologies, Inc., a Houston-based manufacturer of high temperature superconducting (HTS) wire, announces Arthur (Bud) Vos as its new CEO, adding to its world-class team of business leaders developing technology for advanced energy transition solutions. Bud brings decades of experience scaling businesses in clean energy and grid technologies, and a track record for innovative leadership.
Bud’s depth of knowledge in grid, transmission and distribution markets was fundamental to his past achievements as President and CEO of Enbala Power Networks (acquired by Generac in 2020), and for his insights gained from years of creating high-value solutions for utilities. Most recently, as president of Generac Grid Services, Bud advanced the technology to solidify its leadership in the distributed energy market, mapped out a trajectory for global growth, and created a prosperous business within the company. “For over 20 years, Bud has been a visionary, applying tremendous passion for advancing technology to progress companies,” said Bob Chiste, MetOx board member. “We’re thrilled to welcome him to MetOx. I’m confident that Bud will provide strategic and strong leadership as the business scales.”
Bud succeeds MetOx’s outgoing CEO, Jim Jewitt, who will remain a committed part of the leadership team as COO. Jim commented, “MetOx warmly welcomes Bud to the helm. He brings a unique depth of experience to lead MetOx as it becomes a full-scale manufacturing company serving rapidly evolving markets.”
“MetOx is poised for a period of extraordinary growth and the addition of Bud is directly in line with the board’s preparations for rapid scale,” said board Chair, Allan MacKenzie. “Bud exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit that MetOx is known for and will thrive in leading the accelerated scale-up.”
“Building businesses from aspiring start-ups to thriving, dynamic enterprises is what I do best. I’m pleased to be joining MetOx as the company readies its technology for large scale commercial production – a ground-breaking first in the HTS industry,” said Vos. “I’ve seen the power of innovation to accelerate sustainable energy solutions. MetOx will be instrumental to realizing a decarbonized world by building a core technology for how power is delivered.”
Based in Houston, Texas, MetOx manufactures HTS wire using an enhanced and patented manufacturing process. The company is scaling to produce and sell large quantities of HTS wire at prices that will support the widespread use of this advanced material. HTS wire will enable expansion and support decarbonization of the electrical grid to meet the rapidly growing need for electricity. Among other applications, it will enable sustainable power generation and revolutionize advanced devices in medical diagnostics and mass transportation.
