ELECTRONIC CENTRE LIMITED: OUR HISTORY
For almost 65 years, Electronic Centre Limited has provided clients in St. John’s and throughout the surrounding area with superior electronic solutions. At first glance, one would think that our history is a typical story about the survival of another local enterprise. However, this is actually a story about the evolution of wireless technology, creative thinking, Big Brother, and a need to make the world a safer place.
Owner Wayne C. Squires has positioned Electronic Centre Limited to respond to security demands in the industry through the rapidly changing world of wireless technology. For Squires, the demand for our expertise is summed up in two words: homeland security. He says, “No two days are the same, no two applications are alike…and taking on new challenges is never boring.” Our passion for protecting clients through technological innovation has gained us a solid reputation.
Over the decades, our company has fostered relationships with many contented and inspired clients from Iceland and Greenland to the Bahamas and Southeast Asia. “We get calls from all over the world inquiring about our technological capabilities,” says Squires, “my first question is ‘how did you find me?’” Word tends to get around fast by usual means, but it seems to move at the speed of light in the world at Electronic Centre Limited. If technological innovation has driven us to achieve such remarkable feats since 1955, one can only imagine what milestones will be reached in the years to come. After all, what the mind can conceive, the creative use of technology can achieve.
A MAJOR PLAYER IN TODAY’S WIRELESS INDUSTRY
Electronic Centre Limited has evolved from being a retail-focused electronic parts/communications sales and service operation in 1955 to a serious player in current wireless technology. Today, about 97% of all of our security applications are geared toward the protection of large industrial interests at home and abroad. Only 3% accounts for retail business which is a shift from the 100% it accounted for in 1955.
The challenge to create custom designed security systems from concept to implementation is the catalyst for our success. Most systems simply do not exist. Squires says, “We have to create a solution for our customers by any means possible. We could be working with photo ID terminals, security cameras, satellite emergency phone systems, and whatever it takes.” After September 11th, 2001, our surveillance technologies were used to monitor activities onboard commercial aircraft, at major ports, and at industrial mega-projects. Systems are designed to allow clients the ability to observe their operations from a PC anywhere in the world in real-time.
So the next time you’re shopping at your favourite retailer, reading a newspaper in a café, or standing at a busy intersection in a major city, remember that Big Brother may be watching. For any further information, contact us today!
