CEO and co-founder, Effenco David Arsenault is the CEO and co-founder of Effenco, a company pioneering the electrification and connectivity of heavy-duty vocational vehicles. David and two of his classmates founded Effenco in 2006; shortly after David obtained his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). Using a unique and patented ultracapacitor-based technology, Effenco has developed a system that stops the engine of a vehicle during idle and electrifies its auxiliary equipment and hydraulics. The technology reduces greenhouse gas emissions while limiting fuel consumption and operational costs, as well as noise levels. Today, Effenco has a sales & distribution network in twelve countries. Prior to starting his own company, David worked for the jet engine manufacturer Pratt & Witney.
