RONKONKOMA, N.Y. - Security product distributor Elcor International has opened a new branch here, just a month after it opened another new location in New Jersey.

The addition brings Elcor’s branch count to three locations, plus the company’s headquarters in Fresh Meadows, N.Y.

According to an Elcor press release, the company opened the branch in a location that once housed a Systems Depot branch that closed earlier this year.

"We recognized the benefits of taking over a branch location which was already servicing the local customers and which was ready for us to move in without us having to make any alterations except putting our name on the door," said Charles Geschwind, president of Elcor.
