July 23, 2016   Blog from the President:   Referencing my last post (written 2 years ago but just recently posted), “Keep the Disabled Mobile” has a special meaning in my heart after reconnecting with my 1st cousin once removed in Findlay, Ohio on February 4, 2016.  Her name is April Patton and she was [...]

March 12, 2014 Blog from the President: It has been sometime since my last blog, but we at “DC Controls, Inc.” have reinvented our brand.  No longer will our company reference our “Z7000” as the “Handicap Door Operator made in the USA”. But now, we will be labeling our Z7000 and the new Z4000 as [...]

November 1, 2012   Blog from the President: From all my previous blogs there has been a hint of sarcasm and wondering why all competitors are building everything in China.  “Made in the USA” logo and a three warranty will continue to push our “handicap and automatic doors” into the majority of all architectural specifications. [...]

October 4, 2012 Blog from the President: For the past four years, I have pondered about the relevance of “AAADM” which is the American Association of Automatic Door Manufacturers. Here are my problems with this organization: 1.  By quickly looking at the member’s origination, 66.67% of these companies are European, Canadian or Japanese.  So, my [...]

August 24, 2011  Blog from the President: To date our “Made in the USA Challenge” created nothing but haters due to my competitors continued use of producing in Asia and Mexico.  We will continue to produce all products here and our newest swing door operator – Z4000—will be made completely in the USA!   FYI, one [...]

History of DC Controls:  Welcome to our humble website.  DC Controls, Inc. started in 2001 after having a dispute with Horton Automatics.  At the time, another one of our companies designed and assembled turnkey assemblies for Horton. Unfortunately, they tried to bully us – it did not work.  For I formulated another company—DC Controls– to [...]

March 7, 2011  Blog from the President:  As you can detect from our website, we manufacture all automatic door assemblies in Addison, Texas.  I realize a lot of companies out there will put the “Made in the USA” tag on their products.  But how do you know they are telling the truth?  Most companies subcontract [...]
