Last week, ZAGO Manufacturing Co. hosted a manufacturing facility tour for more than 20 star STEM students from Essex County Newark Tech, and it was a blast!

Recently, Flanders, the northern region of Belgium launched a “smart” water management system based on networked, interconnected sensors. The sensors provide insight into its regions water use, water quality and available water quantity.

They contain microcontrollers and electronics that can be easily damaged by the infiltration of water, dust and other contaminants.
ZAGO Manufacturing Company looks forward with great anticipation to the coming school year. As a community-oriented company, we take very seriously our obligation to invest in our community and our employees.
