Senator Blumenthal Visits Gyre9

Senator Blumenthal 

Senator Blumenthal visited Gyre9 to highlight recent federal investments to expand EV infrastructure and incentivize consumers to purchase EVs.

Signed into law in August, the Inflation Reduction Act will provide billions in direct consumer rebates and tax credits for consumers who purchase electric vehicles. Under federal investments in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Connecticut is slated to receive $52 million in federal funding to expand EV charging infrastructure across the state, more than $18 million of which has already been released, greatly supporting manufacturing companies like Gyre9.

Featured in Fab News!

Gyre9 was recently featured in Fab News regarding its involvement in designing Elkay’s new desktop smartwell.

Every year we are approached by numerous entrepreneurs, inventors and people with great, new product ideas. A student at the University of Connecticut brought this one to us and after some consideration we thought it merited some involvement for two reasons – it was an environmentally conscious and a healthy product. We began our design and engineering process and the initially produced 50 -100 units and while we were doing this, another client of ours Elkay offered to purchase the company, Ed Gilchrest
