Who We Are

 

TDK Systems Group attributes a large portion of our firm’s success to the integrity, commitment to quality, strong engineering background and the 25 plus years of professional and technical experience our key personnel possess. We excel at what we do because we truly enjoy our work and have many years of experience working with the systems and technologies we integrate for our clients.

TDK is set apart from it's industry competition by our background in military avionics combined with our strong engineering roots in the Industrial Process Controls Industry. In these fields, critical systems and processes absolutely must be well engineered and must work every time, all the time. "Good enough" is not good enough when critical processes are involved and from our activation in 1999, we began to apply this philosophy to our work in the security industry.

Our prospective clients should ask themselves, are the companies and individuals they listen to really security experts with strong engineering and technologies backgrounds or new to the industry since the tragedy of September 11, 2001. In contrast with many of the answers they are likely to receive, in 1999, TDK was already managing the largest Smart Card, Access Control and Security project at that time in the US.
