Toronto, Canadian-based Modern Access Systems Inc. is opening its U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles. The location will encompass light assembly, sales, service, and a training center.
The company has been manufacturing access-control systems, parking systems and storage solutions in Canada for more than 30 years. The U.S. expansion enables Modern to extend its reach and better service its dealers and customers, the company said.
“It’s a natural progression in Modern’s growth strategy to support its 100-plus dealer network in the U.S.A.,” said President and CEO Grant Furlane.
Modern chose Los Angeles to better support one of its dealers, Parking Technical Services Inc., which is fulfilling a multi-million dollar contract with Jamison Properties to automate 40-plus facilities with Modern systems. The Modern plant is expected to be fully operational by September.
