CES expands into Queen Anne’s County

Communications Electronics Systems LLC (CES), a provider of security services including video surveillance, access control, and intrusion detection systems, is expanding its operations in Queen Anne’s County and plans to hire 10 new employees in the coming months. The company is eligible for Maryland’s Job Creation Tax Credit.

CES was launched in 2017 as an expansion of the Maryland-based Communication Electronics, Inc., a 42 year-old communications company that is the largest Motorola partner/dealer on the east coast, with five offices and more than 150 employees that provide life safety and communications systems to a broad range of commercial business and government customers.

CES’s sales and engineering office opened in Stevensville in April with five employees. The CES management team boasts well over 100 years of combined experience in integrated security and have provided security systems to the highest levels of federal, state, and commercial clients including; the White House, Maryland State Police, major defense contractors, healthcare facilities, and national corporations.

“Maryland has always been our home so we’re thrilled to be expanding here,” said CES President Tom Steg. “We’re already at eight employees in the new office and expect to continue growing so we can enhance our engineering capability to deliver great services and products to all our customers. This service commitment is the foundation principle that differentiates us from our competitors. It’s exciting to have referral customers calling us.”

“Many of Maryland’s private businesses and as well as our government and military partners depend on top-notch security to ensure their systems, as well as their customers, are protected,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. “That’s why the cutting-edge solutions and services provided by CES are a key resource for our state, and why Maryland’s talented workforce, strategic location and vibrant security sector are a great fit for CES.”

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread in the United States and across the globe, we want to let everyone know that Communications Electronics’number one priority is to keep our employees, partners, and customers safe. Here is an update on preparations and steps we have taken to date. Two weeks ago, CE assembled a cross-disciplinary COVID-19 Management Team to actively monitor the situation and make recommendations to leadership. We have been assessing the situation daily, remaining vigilant, and following recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local authorities. We’ve assembled guidance for our employee teams, pursuant to these recommendations.

As you know, the situation is evolving rapidly, and COVID-19 is affecting people differently, depending on their location and situation. As a result, flexible solutions are needed. CE Senior Management is considering all options, including the possibility of asking staff to work remotely.

While we remain focused on the health and safety of our staff and those around us, we also remain committed to serving our customers. Fortunately, we have technology in place and significant experience with working remotely. We have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can continue to deliver uninterrupted, high quality service. Operational teams have been working to identify potential needs and strategies associated with full-virtual delivery of services. Project managers and supervisors are actively having preparedness discussions with our teams. Our IT team has been reviewing and testing systems and protocols, to ensure necessary tools and support for staff to operate virtually. Everyone has a role to play.

If you have questions or feedback, you can reach the COVID-19 Management Team at Safety@Talkcei.com.

Being flexible and able to overcome big challenges is part of what makes us who we are. We have the infrastructure, skills, and desire to support each other, while providing the highest level of service to our customers. Obviously, this is a fast moving, fluid situation affecting our country and the world. We will update our guidance and decisions as the situation changes. Please continue to monitor the CDC Website for updates.

We hope that you and your family are well,
