Established May 1989 in Chicago, IL.
Formed from a Client-Driven request; Moore Business Forms (Lake Forest, IL) was the catapult. After 2 years of installing Soundmasking and Commercial-Grade Paging Systems for Moore, we were asked to install a Turnstile with Card Access and CCTV in their printing and distribution facility in Mundelein, IL, and Windsor, CT. Mr. Emmett Kelly, Facilities Manager for Moore used us for 8 years until they sold to R.R. Donnelley – and now we provide Turnstiles to R.R. Donnelley throughout the U.S. and Mexico.
Back in the beginning we provided engineering, equipment and installation to Abbott Laboratories, Motorola, SC Johnson Wax. It was during these times that we realized something – that the facilities personnel and maintenance departments played an integral part of our installation; after-all – it was their system! They would ultimately be the end user – the people that would program new cards into the database, review CCTV images, make the Photo-ID Badges, and deal with the little issues that would arise (like changing the ribbon in the photo-id printer, fixing an ice-cube relay…)…
In 1997 the internet came to the limelight. Initially we used the internet for a high-tech business card, but then we realized – if we provide the end-user; the facility personnel, human resource dept., maintenance dept., and other integrators - with the knowledge we’ve gained over the past 18 years; provide all the equipment – from wire-nuts, cabling (and cable mounting devices – like 4” opened-ended O’Rings with Pencil-Rod Clips (do you know what these are!) - - The Computers, and Turnstiles, and CCTV equipment (down to the RG6U Connectors) - - Provide extremely detailed Point-to-Point Wiring Schematics, and AutoCAD Device Location Details - complete with cable-routing and electrical requirements - - that they (the end-user, and other contractors) could purchase and install a Hi Security - Security System even having no previous experience what-so-ever - - and you know what? It WORKED!
Our client list is one we are pleased and extremely blessed to have – General Dynamics, Northrop Grumman, Department of Defense, the Pentagon (JIEDDO), Ramstein AFB (Germany), The British Embassy (Syria), The Mayor of Mekkah (Saudi Arabia), Chugach (Alaska), Parsons (Devens, MA), McAlester Army Depot, Robins Air Force Base, DET1 AFEREG Army, U.S. Navy ( Italy, Hawaii, Virginia, Las Vegas ), West Point Military Academy (New York), R.R. Donnelley ( 8 locations to date), Bureau of Prisons ( 7 Federal Penitentiars, so far), Archer Daniels Midland, California State University, Camp Lejeune, Queens Hospital (New York) – to name a few…
To sum this up – we know our product, inside and out – from the operating system, the mother-boards, the mechanics, interconnection, correct methods of wiring (this is the most critical too!), and most of all we appreciate the opportunity to work with you. Work is a Blessing, and we work hard to make certain you get the best value for your investment, and that when your system is finished – you’ll be our client for life!
