Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 12, 2010
CE Pro, the leading trade publication covering the installation and integration of the electronic home, recently released its annual list and survey of the 100 largest multi-subsystem residential integration companies in June 2010. Procom Enterprises (Procom), a leading provider of automated home systems including home theater, audio/video distribution, lighting control systems, security systems, and HVAC solutions was listed as the 72 integrator in 2009 in CE Pros annual CE Pro 100 awards. What’s more impressive is that of the 100 integrators chosen to receive this prestigious distinction, Procom was one of only three from Illinois to be selected.
Since its inception in 1998, the CE Pro 100 is an elite group of Top Performing Integrators ranked by gross revenue in multisystem residential installations. “Each of the CE Pro 100 companies represents some of the savviest businessmen in the industry. In an economic downturn they took advantage of the slow down to prepare their businesses for the next generation of buyers and technologies” said Jason Knott, Editor, CE Pro. “They didn’t just wait it out, instead they strategically planned for the months and years ahead, investigated new markets and found ways to reach out to existing customers.”
Despite economic challenges, Procom continues to be a leader in the Chicago-Metro area for providing innovative home automation solutions that make “smart homes” more affordable. When asked about contributing factors to success, Jacek Zaworski, co-owner of Procom Enterprises stated “We continue to see increased concerns about energy and security that make home automation technologies more attractive. Homeowners look to these technologies in anticipation of enhancing quality of life, while making the most efficient use of energy (especially electricity) and providing a sense of security. At Procom, we want to make these options more readily available to all home-owners regardless of budget.”
Home automation technology has been around for some time but has only recently begun to enter the mainstream. However, the declining cost and complexity of new home automation products is helping to attract new buyers. According to Procom’s Zaworski, “We are thankful and energized to be a part of CE Pro’s Top 100 Integrators list for 2009. Not to mention we are proud to be one of only three in the Top 100 that are located in Illinois.” Zaworski continued, “Until a few years ago, the cost of quality home automation components was prohibitive for all but the enthusiast market. However, thanks to technological advancements in this area we can bring this type of convenience into many more homes than before. Couple that with an unsurpassed, dedicated focus on first-rate customer service and that’s Procom in a nutshell.”
