VYCON Recognized by OC Metro Magazine, Named to the '2012 Green Team'

May 1, 2012

During the annual OC Metro Green Team awards, held on April 18 in Costa Mesa, Calif., VYCON (www.vyconenergy.com) was presented with top honors as a company changing the green industry in Orange County.

For three years, OC METRO magazine has annually named the top green companies paving the way and setting industry standards for being greener. Throughout the year, OC METRO's editorial staff collects nominations and scours the top movers and shakers in the Orange County green industry until the time comes to determine the top 25 companies. This year's twenty-five honorees are making incredible strides to create a more eco-friendly Orange County and reduce the carbon footprint globally.

VYCON designs and manufactures environmentally responsible, clean energy storage for backup power systems for mission-critical data center, healthcare, mobile power, industrial, broadcast and gaming applications. In 2011, VYCON was named to the prestigious Inc. 500 list, a compendium of the most entrepreneurial and fastest-growing private companies in America. VYCON, which achieved an impressive three-year sales growth of 797 percent, was the highest-ranking California company within the energy sector; placing 436 overall. This is the second, consecutive year VYCON has made the list.

"We were pleased to be selected to the list of Orange County's top green companies," said Dann McKeraghan, vice president of sales & marketing for VYCON. "Today's mission-critical applications require highly-efficient energy solutions to deflect rising energy costs. VYCON's flywheel technology allows companies to reach sustainability goals, reliably and cost-effectively."

"It's impossible to imagine this county associated with a color other than orange," said OC Metro magazine publisher Steve Churm . "Yet with each passing season, green becomes a larger part of the collective thinking of those who work and live in Orange County. [Going green] is neither foreign or forced. We do it at home and at work because it makes sense for our communities, our health and our bottom line."
