Established in 1971, Thompson Engineering initially focused on the educational market. In 1972, Thompson Engineering became a distributor of Rauland-Borg Corporation. Rauland has long enjoyed a reputation as a key player in the development and sale of electronic systems in the educational and healthcare marketplace.
After establishing a solid reputation within the educational market, Thompson expanded its focus to include the healthcare market. Thompson currently has systems in over 100 school districts and many hospitals and other healthcare facilities within the three counties in which it operates. In the healthcare market, it has continued to foster its relationship with Rauland-Borg, which is one of the largest suppliers of nurse call equipment in the United States.
With over 50 employees, Thompson has maintained continual growth while maintaining a commitment to providing quality products and installations to its customers. It maintains California C-7 and C-10 contractors’ licenses, as well as a California Alarm Company license. Each member of its design management team is experienced in all aspects of systems integration.
As Thompson reflects upon its 40 years, it is acutely aware of changes within the market and changes in technology. Thompson’s goals of providing quality installations of the most current technologies available and high customer satisfaction remain unchanged.
St. Jude Medical Center needed a company to help them modernize their communications and A/V systems. Their current systems were old, outdated, and falling short in reliability. Upon contacting us, we met with St. Jude executives, surveyed the site to assess the requirements, and discussed options to integrate new technologies which resulted in new Nurse Call systems, Centralized Code Blue, Intercom, Campus Wide Paging, TV Distribution, and Clock Systems.
