"We deliver a service that personifies the 21st Century," observed founder and chief executive officer Blair Brommel. "We're "high tech" and cutting edge in every sense of the word. But Blair Home Technologies is much more than that. Old-fashioned, first-name-basis customer service is everything to us. It's in my company's DNA."

Although but the latest of a series of recent expansions, the move prompted Brommel to join HTSA.

With 34 years in the business, Brommel - and his veteran staff - brings an old school approach to every project. "It might sound quaint or even cliché, but every customer is our most important customer," he said. "We don't care if you need us for a one-day project or if you need your entire house wired for sound. You, the customer, are why we exist - and we never forget that."
Blair Home Technologies is aligned with established and respected architects and designers, and views every project as a collaborative effort to deliver the best and most cost-efficient results for clients.

"As we look to enhance our reach and voice across the industry, we are thrilled to welcome likeminded members, and eager to join forces with both Blair and his team. Their presence will undoubtedly be a valued addition to our organization."
