About Us

Our History

We are a Virginia-based firm specializing in the design and implementation of controls and information systems for municipalities, manufacturers, and OEM’s. Sunapsys is the first system integrator based in the VA, NC, WV, and MD region to earn the Certified Member status from the CSIA. We remain the largest independent system integrator in southwestern Virginia.

Our name, Sunapsys, is derived from the word “synapse.” Synapses in our bodies transmit electrical impulses between neurons in the central nervous system. They are essential elements of both cognitive thought and control of the human body. Similarly, the systems we build provide the intelligence and the control for manufacturing plants and water facilities.

Our proven track record in delivering large, complex control systems within the client’s time-frame makes us the right choice as a system integrator. Whether working on a multi-million dollar treatment plant, single panel integration in an industrial setting, or providing expert control system design services, our high quality work provides a benchmark that others strive to meet.
