Troxler Electronic Laboratories Inc., Research Triangle Park, N.C., a manufacturer of test and measurement equipment for the highway construction industry, has announced they have received the prestigious International Road Federation Global Achievement Award in the category of "Technology, Equipment and Manufacturing." The IRF awards are given in eight categories that recognize outstanding achievement in design, innovative finance, advocacy, construction methodology, safety, technology, equipment and manufacturing, environmental mitigation and research. It is the first time Troxler has been awarded this honor.
