We win as a team bringing passion to our work and encouraging everyone to be their authentic selves.
Our mission attracts candidates from all over the world who want their work to have a meaningful impact. We’re continuing to build a team of diverse, passionate, and creative problem-solvers who are fascinated by our platform and inspired by our purpose. We recognize the importance of creating an environment of physical and psychological safety, where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work every single day.
Our heritage dates back to the Apollo space program of the 1960s, when our fuel cells powered and provided water for the first successful moon landing. While we were a division of the industrial giant United Technology Corporation (UTC), we spent decades developing groundbreaking products to make hydrogen fuel cells a viable way to power the world. We were the first company to commercialize the stationary fuel cell and developed the first hydrogen-powered vehicles.
In 2014, our predecessor entity was acquired by Doosan Group, an energy-focused multinational industrial powerhouse from Korea with more than 125 years of history. HyAxiom, as we are currently named, is a hybrid of two rich legacies, combining expertise in cutting-edge hydrogen technology with a proven track record of upscaling products and businesses to accelerate the adoption of hydrogen-based energy solutions worldwide.

Sundyne’s broad product portfolio of pumps and compressors serves a wide range of hydrogen and carbon capture applications in the transport/mobility, power generation, refining, ammonia, chemical and mining industries. Sundyne’s market leading products that are tailored to Hydrogen processing include:
- PPI Diaphragm Compressors: are specifically designed to address the challenges associated with compressing H2 from low pressure levels (such as electrolyzer outlet pressure) to over 1,000 bar with the highest levels of purity needed for today’s mobility applications.
- Integrally Geared Centrifugal Compressors: are widely used to recirculate Hydrogen across numerous applications. They’re also used to process Hydrogen (and CO2) for the production of green e-Methanol.
- Sundyne’s ETFE-lined ANSIMAG pumps or HMD Kontro metallic pumps are widely used to pump water and chemicals for pH control into electrolyzers. Sundyne’s sealless pumps feature a compact footprint (with no seals or seal support systems), which is important to accommodate space constraints on electrolyzer skids. Sealless pumps also eliminate the potential for leaks, and they are easier to install, operate and maintain.
