AccuLock, Inc. Is pleased to announce the promotion of 2 of our exceptional team members. Daniel Brown, and Chad Segerstrom have been promoted to the position of Vice-President.
Daniel has worked with AccuLock since 2007. His tenure began in a most unusual way. Daniel actually ‘moved in’ with the CEO for his first 6 months. His former position was in Chicago. Dan just wasn’t sure if the position with AccuLock was in his best interest, so before he would accept the position, and move his family from Chicago to Texas; he spent 6 months working with AccuLock before his position was official.
After his move to Texas, Dan was tasked with promoting AccuLock repair and new lock sales divisions. He has proven that his capabilities match his reputation. Dan brought us from selling locks for a competitor, to manufacturing and distributing our own electronic lock; the AccuLock, ALS1, his direction and expertise has brought AccuLock new lock sales, to the point of being a major force in the electronic hotel lock Industry.
Dan travels extensively, traveling to over 50 trade shows every year! His dedication to our customers, staff, and vendors makes Dan an invaluable asset.
Chad Segerstrom joined us in in 2010. He came on as a general laborer. Although Chad is the son of the owner of AccuLock, he began his career with the corporation at its bottom rung, choosing to learn the business from the bottom up. Chad has done every job that AccuLock has to offer and has done them well. This gives him a truly ‘rounded’ level of experience.
Chad has brought our ‘Onsite Service Division’ from concept to fruition. His efforts have provided our customers with yet another level of service not offered by other companies.
Congratulations to Chad!
In the beginning…
AccuLock’s modest beginning started as a D&R Locksmith subsidiary in 1991. Owned by Rick Segerstrom; D&R proudly served the DFW Metroplex as a well-known locksmith service.
At a local Industry trade show, Mr. Segerstrom met a man named Fred Crum, a sales representative of Saflok. The timing of that meeting happened at a fortuitous time for both gentlemen. A lifelong friendship has followed, but also opened a new path that day in the Hospitality Industry for Rick, because in 1991, at the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving, Texas, Rick installed his first hotel guest room locks.
AccuLock continued to evolve in the electronic security industry since its introduction, to increasingly address the growing market of smart and secure access solutions. Incorporated in 1996, AccuLock, Inc. began playing a major role in the electronic lock installation boom of the 1990’s, offering as many as 17 road crews to install Hotel locks all over the country, and expanded to all the major factories.
Since our humble beginnings, AccuLock personnel have installed over 500,000 guest room locks in the U.S. and a few countries around the World. We are factory trained and Certified by all the Major Hotel Lock Manufacturers.
Being a Master Locksmith, Rick was quick to note in his ventures with installation, the intrinsic value to the locks that were being replaced at the Hotels where he was working. He embarked on a new mission: acquiring these old locks from the Hotels and repairing them.
Many of the branded hotels at the time did not have mandates for electronics, and Rick was able to sell the locks he acquired to other properties that could not afford the price of new locks that were being offered. So, as it went, the repair side of the business grew, while the number of installations dwindled, and Rick began doing repairs to the electronic locks he bought from Hotels he installed as a focus. From there, AccuLock’s growth has been slow, but steady.
AccuLock, Inc. now boasts over 15,000 client Hotels, and Management Companies, that use our services. We still install new locks, in fact, we now have our own lock! Our installation crews have been trained in high quality installation and customer service, and are rivaled by none. But we also continue to service, repair and install older locks as well. Our reputation of superior customer service, and quality workmanship have earned us a significant place in the Hospitality Industry.
But we haven’t stopped with Hospitality! We have also ventured into the Commercial Access Control segment of several industries. We have become certified installers for many of the electronic access control companies. We have installed access controls on assorted, sensitive environments including:
- Fiber Optic Regeneration stations
- Cell sites
- Computer control rooms
- Shower doors – (Truck Stop’s)
- Commercial offices
- Retail storefronts
