Electrical Connection contractor Summit Electric is brightening the past and future by installing new LED lighting at the National Museum of Transportation. The project is part of the overall master plan to modernize the museum and it is one of several that Summit and its IBEW Local 1 workforce has delivered proficiently. The most cost-efficient lighting spotlight historic and modern exhibits, including a train that travels 550 mph and can get to Kansas City from St. Louis in 30 minutes.

All it takes to nurture a bright future is to plant a seed. Electrical Connection contractor TSI Global Companies did just that recently when it organized a tech show for the St. Louis Public Schools featuring many of its high-tech partners.
