It was 1974. America was in the throes of its darkest days with Watergate, deflation, and an oil crisis that was strangling the economy.The cruelest blow of this downturn was how it squelched demand for brash, promising, young engineers fresh out of school like Gene Desantis. He had earned his degree at the Pratt Institute on the GI Bill and probably thought his toughest days were behind him. Just a few years before he'd been serving in the Army as a Platoon Leader and Company Commander - a rarefied title he'd earned at the tender age of 22. Yet, here he was: out of work and distressed about his future. Gene couldn't appreciate at the time what a stroke of good fortune unemployment would turn out to be. Full bio on web site blog. Company started officially 1974 with just Gene and grew over the years and six locations to over 200 employees.we sell to many LE agencies and sell product all over the world. We currently sell hundreds of our own and OEM as well.
