FOUNDED in 1984 by Robert (Bob) F. Dietl, ALC has always maintained a Customer is always RIGHT attitude. Bob who has been in "Phone Business" for more that 50 years has accomplished it all. He started working for the NYC Bell AT&T Telephone Company after serving his country in the Air Force.  He climbed the BELL System corporate ladder and in 1975 he was recruited from NYC to Ohio to accept the position of General Manager of United Telephone of Ohio (Mansfied & Warren). After deregulation in 1984 he decided to open his own Long Distance and Equipment company in Warren, Ohio partnering with another startup company at the time LiTel, and well the rest is history.. We still have many customers from those early days when a phone system would require an entire room and thousands of wires. 


Today, Bob has since retired and Sons Jim and Matt are continuning that attitude and are excited to offer a complete line of products including pure VoIP phone systems from PANASONIC and IPITOMY. Security Solutions from 2GIG, DSC, Hikvision and AXIS.


ALC is certified or factory trained in all manuafactures we sell and install.


Most of ALC's management team have been with the company for over 20 years. ALC's number one responsibility is to the customer, without clients there is no ALC.


After 911 ALC Management realized that security was going to be very important to everyone so ALC invested all there experiance in business solutions and technolgy towards IP Surveiallance.
