Company president, Fred J. Leonardo, began his career in the telephone industry. During a New York Tel strike in 1971, Leonardo started dabbling in alarms as a secondary business. By 1978, he had to leave the phone company because his alarm business was booming, and he had reached more than 2,000 long-range radio subscribers on Long Island by the early 1980s.
Now Electornix Systems specializes in large, complicated, high-end accounts.
â€œThe key to staying successful is dedication, hard work, and being there when your customer calls. Success is based on service,â€ Leonardo says.
In the near term, Leonardo says that the company will focus on service as well as increasing profitability in this challenging economy.
