|NC Rep. Price met with the Boon Edam management team to learn more about the company's access control solutions|
Boon Edam Inc., a global leader in security entrances and architectural revolving doors, was honored to receive a specially scheduled visit on Monday, February 1st by U.S. Congressman David E. Price, who represents the 4th District in North Carolina.
The Congressman began his visit by meeting with the management team at Boon Edam to learn more about the company and its solutions. CEO Mark Borto shared that strong growth in the security industry had supported double digit annual increases in revenue for Boon Edam in recent years, spurring the company to hire over 100 people in the last four years to keep up with the increased demand for security entrances. When the Congressman asked what our products do, Borto replied, “Boon Edam’s security entrances are used to mitigate risk, to fix ‘the hole’ in buildings created when a secured door is opened and another person tailgates behind the authorized individual. Our security entrances are typically deployed at main entrance lobbies, employee entrances, and higher security interior doors.”

The Congressman was then given a tour of the 275,000 sq. ft. factory and the product showroom to see first-hand how the products are manufactured and how they operate to stop tailgating. Rep. Price noted that he had seen several types of security entrance products in federal buildings in Washington D.C. Boon Edam’s security entrances are currently deployed in many federal and military facilities around the USA, and many are equipped with two-factor or multi-factor authentication systems to ensure the identity of the user is verified prior to entry.
“I enjoyed learning about the innovative work underway at Boon Edam’s Lillington facility,” said Congressman Price. “I am thrilled that Boon Edam’s expansion has created hundreds of jobs in the Fourth District, and I look forward to supporting the company’s ongoing relationship with North Carolina for many years to come.”
