Strategic Connections is a technology systems integrator which has successfully combined seven core specialties of technology construction to allow the truly “strategic connections” that all modern facilities require in today’s high tech environment. These consist of Structured Cabling systems, Audio Visual systems, Commercial Security systems, Fire Alarm systems, Fire Protection systems (sprinkler), Telephone systems, and Power Supply systems.
Virtually all building-campus low voltage smart systems fall within these realms.
These services include design, engineering, and installation for interior and campus infrastructure Category-rated and fiber optic cabling, audio-visual sound and lighting systems for large venues such as arenas, stadiums, auditoriums and theaters, as well as training rooms, conference rooms, common areas, and exterior display systems. We offer the top commercial security systems through Strategic Security Solutions, a Strategic Connections company, involving card access, biometrics and facial recognition systems, perimeter control systems, closed circuit television (CCTV) monitoring and recording devices. We also provide life safety fire alarm systems that meet all codes, distributed antenna systems (DAS) to push your wireless signal throughout your facility, sound masking systems, paging systems, telephone systems, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) equipment, and generator backup, along with any fully licensed custom electrical construction services.
Serving our customers across the United States, Strategic Connections has grown to be one of the leading providers of high quality and dependable communication infrastructures. In addition to the entire south-eastern United States, Strategic Connections has completed major projects for our customers all across the U.S., including Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, Oklahoma, California, Kentucky, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
Strategic Connections was incorporated in October 1998, formed by the company’s President Scott McLaughlin. Strategic Connections delivers uncompromising solutions for its customers. Starting out as a structured cabling contractor, our business vision and genuine care for “Customer Satisfaction” has caused Strategic Connections to grow into a reputable technology installation firm that is well established and respected within industry circles, always expanding our capabilities in order to become a single point-of-contact company that can meet all of our customers’ turnkey low voltage needs. Strategic Connections has achieved steady growth every year since its beginning.
In August of 2009, Strategic Connections acquired OneSource Building Technologies Audiovisual, Sound & Lighting Group. Once a part of Tyco, OSBT-AVSL originally started out in 1949 as Long Communications. Long has been an icon in the audio-visual world and is well known for its distinguished tradition of system design and installation without compromise. With this addition, decades of talent were added to Strategic Connections staff, creating one of the premier full-service AV integrators in the country. It also put four Strategic Connections office locations on the map.
In July of 2010, Strategic Connections acquired Communications Support Services Inc., (CSS). With this new addition Strategic Connections Inc. virtually doubled the products and services to its regional Structured Cabling portfolio, adding a seasoned group of management and installation professionals its fast growing organization.
In July of 2011, the security division of Strategic Connections was busting at the seams, and Strategic Security Solutions was born by breaking out as a stand-alone company. Strategic Security Solutions moved into its own space and created the fifth office location for Strategic Connections.
In February of 2013, Strategic Connections formed another specialty division dedicated to Fire Alarm systems, creating the sixth core department in the Company. This commitment to providing the same quality and dependability with Fire Alarm systems was considerable. Strategic Connections did not spare any expense to bring in the talent, experience, and credentials required, adding a complete design/engineering/installation department to the fold.
In November of 2013, as Strategic Security Solutions continued to grow at an unprecedented pace, a sixth office location was added to accommodate the growth and became the new home for S3.
In February of 2015, our seventh department was formed that involves the specific field of Fire Protection systems (or sprinkler systems), as we hired over 20 vastly experienced designers and installers dedicated to Fire Protection systems.
