CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Feb. 16 D&L Communication Systems, Inc. has been named the winner of NSCA's 2010 Excellence in Business Award for Growth Strategies.
After finding success primarily in its local healthcare market with video and data products, D& L Communication Systems, Inc. decided to implement new strategies to grow the business and the bottom line. The company pursued new customers at a national level; obtained a GSA Schedule; and focused on partnerships with customers, vendors and a medical planning consultant. These strategies helped D&L increase its customer base by 30 to 50 percent each year for the past six years as well as increase sales by more than 600 percent.
Dean Chitwood, President of D&L Communication Systems said the following when accepting the award, "I've been a member of NSCA for many years and have utilized their vast resources in many areas as the company has grown. I accept this on behalf of my family, our employees, vendors and sub-contractors for which without them this performance and award would not be possible."
D&L, along with three other distinguished systems integrators, was chosen based on its implementation of creative, visionary strategies to build successful business models.
Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director, said NSCA was pleased to present D&L with the Growth Strategies award.
"D&L proves that understanding key strategies can help companies stay focused and expand their markets," Wilson said. "Its work with government contractors and its national expansion will allow for further growth and even more opportunities in the future."
