A brief history of our success

Every company has a story: one that’s filled with ups and downs, with triumphs and milestones. This is Vizimax’s story, which began more than 30 years ago. Since we first opened our doors, we have expanded into diverse markets around the world, joined international industry committees, produced patented technologies, and set the global standard for smart switching technology. This is how it all came to be.

The road to our success


SynchroTeq: the solution that revolutionized smart switching

Around the world, our patented SynchroTeq solution is the industry-leading inrush current limiter for medium and high voltage grids. Using smart technology, SynchroTeq automates the switching process to mitigate harmful transients at the optimal moment, increasing the stability of electrical grids and reducing wear-and-tear for critical assets. Thanks to its manufacturer-agnostic design, this modular technology can be used to enhance newly acquired systems as well as legacy equipment, allowing energy players to maximize uptime while diminishing their maintenance costs.
