Updates and Information on Our Response to COVID-19. Learn More.


Last year we installed over 1,800 RF systems, becoming the second largest RF company in the U.S. And being number two is just fine with us.

Our overhead is smaller than the number one’s, which means our prices are lower, too. We don’t have many layers of management, so we stay closer to the customer. And since we are not a public company, we don’t focus on Wall Street – we focus on delivering First Time Right™
for you.

After 41 years, we still don’t aim to be number one in size. Instead, we are committed to being number one in reliability, quality and responsiveness. And if you ask our clients, we are already there.

With thousands of successful system installations over the years (1,800 in 2017 alone), CONTROLTEK has established itself as one of the most reliable systems deployment companies in the U.S. Trusted by retailers large and small, we offer structured delivery, full transparency and nationwide infrastructure.

Our Client Services Team is organized around our customers – each organization we serve has a dedicated representative who ensures that orders are fulfilled smoothly and any issues are resolved quickly.

Over 40 Year Track Record in Security and Asset Protection

Our founder, Jon Diplock, started our company back in 1976 with an old Volvo truck and a desire to bring to the world the finest in security products. Today CONTROLTEK has presence on three continents; our products are delivered via a state-of-the-art logistics network; and we are relied on by some of the world’s premier retailers, banks and government entities.

What hasn’t changed in the past 40 years are the core values that our company was built upon. Making security the cornerstone of every solution we offer. The commitment to fulfill every promise. The friendliness and care with which our employees treat our customers. And the determination to grow our company in a stable and sustainable way.

Solutions that protect. People that deliver. That was CONTROLTEK back in 1976. And that’s CONTROLTEK today.
