Founded in 1981 by Bill Fitzsimmons, Jan Sandri, and Charles Rodriguez, FSR was established to fill the AV industry’s need for control modules and subsequently expanded with a suite of metal products specifically addressing the AV market. Charles, then owner of AV Services, a NY/NJ-based AV integration company, partnered with the extremely talented engineer Bill Fitzsimmons and Jan to design, manufacture, and market dissolve units, power modules, relay controllers, audio attenuators, and more.
One of FSR’s first milestones was to bring the industry’s first multiplex control system to market. FSR credits its continuing success to its ability to identify customer needs and develop reasonably priced operator-friendly products. In its early stages it provided a great deal of custom engineering, design, and manufacturing for leading companies such as IBM, M&M, ECI and Allen Bradley.
We aren’t just a collection of people or a company, we are a family. We work through problems together, supporting each other and the work we do. We see our customers as an extension of that.
Taking care of our customers is always at the forefront of our minds. Our goal is to provide a quality product, while doing so with outstanding customer service.
You can depend on our products to always be functional, durable, and have longevity within your infrastructure. Every product that leaves our factory is manufactured with the same high quality you’ve come to expect.
Throughout the years we have sustained an operating philosophy that includes giving back to the community on a local level, by contributing much-needed merchandise to area school children and being kind to the planet on a global scale. FSR Inc. believes in supporting the needs of our communities by supporting nonprofit organizations that improve overall quality of life. We sponsor charities and events that enhance the vitality of our neighborhoods, celebrate our community’s success, and support local charities.
From the first PWBs that mounted in the wall behind flat screens, to ceiling enclosures, to our unique small FLEX control systems, and now our floor raceway, we have innovated the infrastructure/AV installation process. Early on in our floor box designs, Craig Park (then with Paoletti, today with Sextant) decided he didn’t like the vertical bracket mounting. Hence the current nice, angled brackets in our floor boxes and the FL-500P (for Park) was designed. With the help of our wonderful AV consultants and customers who give us input we continue to create the solutions our industry requires. From the floor, to table, to walls, to the ceiling, we help you connect. We will continue to keep you connected through creative solutions that will solve our client’s future problems.
