PSI goes to Seaside

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

PORTLAND, Oregon--Performance Systems Integration, a systems integrator that derives 65 to 70 percent of its business from fire, opened a new satellite office in the town of Seaside in July.

While many smaller competitors have had a tough time in the past couple of years, "our service reputation has kept us going," said Scott Dulaney, president of PSI. (See related story on page 1.)

The reason Dulaney opened the Seaside office is because a smaller integrator in the area went out of business and invited him to take over some jobs.

In business for nine years, PSI also has offices in Bothel, Wash. (opened in November 2007), and Sequim, Ore. (opened in February 2008). In Sequim, Dulaney acquired an instant staff, who came to him from a systems integrator in Seattle. "They left as a group and came to work for us," he said.

Dulaney said his fire work is spread across all verticals. "We do all of them, from hospitals to schools, with K-12 schools being the largest percentage-wise."
