The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors honored Rick Elwell, Rob Caylor and their staff of Stylus Technologies located at 961 N Main St in Bluffton, as the April Member of the Month. Elwell and Caylor have been business partners for over 20 years and continue to make an impact in the community.
Stylus Technologies have grown their services over the years and are classified as a low-voltage integrator providing technology solutions for commercial applications. Services they provide include door access controls, entry security, video surveillance, data/voice networks, and audio/video solutions. “We also specialize in church technology and K-12 A/V and LED Stage Lighting.” comments Elwell.
“People have no idea how deep we go into our work and meeting the needs of the customer,” explains Elwell. “We have built relationships all over the community and outside of Wells County and it’s exciting when one project leads to another for that customer and then the referrals start to take place and that is how our services continue to grow.”
When asked about the continuous change in technology and how Stylus Technologies reacts to it, Elwell says that business has changed dramatically over the years. “It is no longer one system doing one thing, but it’s multiple systems being integrated together.”
Many local businesses have taken advantage of the services Stylus Technologies offers such as video security systems at Peyton’s, data lines and door security at Bluffton Motor Works, a plant-wide sound system and providing TV’s and DVD players for boats manufactured at Thunderbird in Decatur, and a variety of technology systems at various businesses.
“We take pride that we work with all of the schools in the county with security systems, classroom technology/AV, interactive projects, or auditorium lighting and sound,” says Elwell.
“Our team works really hard to make it about the customer experience and deliver beyond their expectations,” adds Elwell. “Whatever we can do for the customer, we try to meet their needs and we can’t be afraid to stick our necks out and come up with a plan.”
“We appreciate the support of the community, being a part of Wells County and helping with what we can, when we can. This is a great place to raise a family and do business,” says Elwell. “It’s been a wild ride.”
