San Diego, CA — Maxwell Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: MXWL) announced today that global growth consulting company, Frost & Sullivan, has designated the company as an industry Mover & Shaker.

"Maxwell will continue to grow as the leader of the ultracapacitor market, through improved product lines and service offerings. Our end goal is to obtain the cleanest, most reliable and efficient power and energy solutions to meet the worldwide demand."
