In-house capabilities related to electrical design, production, testing, staging and project management also expand the breadth of the company’s electrical and instrumentation solutions offerings.

“The added expertise, combined with the increased capacity from the Polyphase facilities, enhance our ability to undertake large scale time-critical integration projects,” Allers added.
