Synchrony Welcomed Virginia's Governor
July 5, 2010

Synchrony, Inc., an industry leader in clean, efficient, and reliable technology for rotating machinery and power conversion systems, welcomed Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell for a VIP tour of its facility recently. Elected officials, community and business leaders from the Roanoke Valley were also in attendance.

Synchrony, Inc. is a business success story in spite of a down economy. Synchrony’s innovations in the magnetic bearing market improve reliability, reduce friction, minimize vibration and offer advanced health monitoring and diagnostics, all without the potential environmental disadvantages of lubricants. These advances have accelerated the use of magnetic bearings in the industrial and defense sectors. The wide range of applications include highly efficient and environmentally friendly motors, generators, pumps, compressors, fans, and blowers in sectors such as HVAC, oil and gas, renewable energy, air separation, water treatment, and defense markets.

Governor McDonnell was impressed by the long strides that Synchrony had made in a short time from R&D to taking its products to market. The governor learned of the many broad applications for Synchrony’s technology and the implications for further economic development and job creation in the Roanoke Valley. During the tour of the facility, the governor viewed the company’s leading products, including its monitoring software, which can utilize the latest iPad technology to monitor diagnostics. The governor also learned how Synchrony’s drive trains are being integrated into green, efficient chillers manufactured by McQuay International, which has operations in Staunton, Virginia.
