Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Quality and Triview Communications this Thursday, May 19, 2016 at the Siouxland Chamber’s May Rush Hour Connect. The event is from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at 203 Sergeant Square Dr., Seargeant Bluff, IA.
Triview Communications of Sergeant Bluff was started by Rich Zanter in April 1991. Diane, Rich’s wife, left the nursing profession and joined the family business that same year. From a humble beginning in their basement office in the family home, Triview Communications has grown to become the trusted expert in communication systems throughout Siouxland. In 1996 Triview became authorized to sell Avaya phone systems as Quality Telecommunications and they expanded into their new office building.
Quality and Triview Communications offer phone systems for all sizes of businesses, from the small business with two users, to the large business with offices scattered across the country. Their products include mass notification systems, video conferencing, network surveillance systems, and cabling, including fiber.
Quality and Triview Communications currently has 10 employees, and half of them are immediate family. Rich and Diane have two sons. Ryan is a programming engineer while Lee takes care of the network surveillance systems. Their daughter, Darcy Burner Christenson, is their sales and marketing manager. With more than 100 years combined experience, Quality assures their business customers they will receive the best solution, service and support. Happy 25th Quality and Triview Communications!
Fun Facts from doing business in Siouxland for 25 years
1.Do not be discouraged! Never give up! When Triview was being set up Rich went to the SBA with a business plan. He was told this business would never make it through the first 2 years.
2.What do you do when you have to run wiring through a 12 inch gap over a safe? Grab your 9 year old son and shove him in!
3.Back in the 70’s on a cold Christmas Eve Rich was working his last case of trouble for a residential customer who absolutely insisted that he have a shot of brandy with them. Soon after feeling warm and toasty he climbed a pole and forgot to wrap his safety strap around it before he leaned back. Next thing he knew he was laying in a soft snowbank at the base of the 20 foot pole! The first thing he did was to jump up, make sure no one saw him, and climbed back up the pole.
4.You never know what you will find in ceilings, attics, behind desks etc… Dead mice fall on you, live mice jump at you, squirrels and bats are frantic to get away from you. We find bottles of booze, hand guns and naughty magazines hidden away. And we never tell.
