The Nashua Telegraph, by George Pelletier – In a year that has been rough for local businesses, Nashua-based NewPower Worldwide, located at 107 Northeastern Blvd., has seen record profits while remembering the importance of community.
Founded in 2014 by CEO Carleton Dufoe, NewPower WW provides sourcing, procurement and redistribution of electronic components, selling central processing units, graphics, semiconductors and chipsets.
NewPower was modeled for $100 million in sales and surpassed $300 million in 2019; in 2020, that number was $450 million.
The company is also philanthropic, donating and supporting local charities such as the Nashua Children’s Home and the Plus Company. As Nashua has always been a part of the Dufoe family and vice versa, giving back to the community counts.
“We raised our family there,” Carleton said. “Our third daughter was born there. There were a lot of great experiences there. But knowing people who were from different cultures, and were from all parts of the world, you had to learn to work with them.”
