Synapse Collected World Awards Collage

We are proud to announce that Synapse has once again been recognized for their patented lighting solutions. Connected World Awards recognized Synapse for two lighting installations designed for our McWane Ductile facilities in Ohio and New Jersey which experienced a 63% and 78% energy savings, respectively.

The Synapse wireless control system includes motion sensors which will turn lights on and off as team members enter and leave an area. Another benefit is that supervisors can check whether the lights are on or off from their tablet and make changes immediately from home. As you can imagine, this results in a tremendous savings.

Congratulations, Synapse team! Great job!
