Boon Edam Takes U.S. Rep. David E. Price on Facility Tour

The Congressman from North Carolina received a tour of the Boon Edam factory and discussed job creation with the company’s management team.

LILLINGTON, N.C. – Boon Edam, a provider of security entrances and architectural revolving doors, recently hosted a tour of its facilities here by U.S. Congressman David E. Price, who represents the 4th District in North Carolina.

Price began his Feb. 1 visit by meeting with the Boon Edam management team to learn more about the company and its solutions. According to a press release, 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 more than 100 people in the last four years to keep up with the increased demand for security entrances.

Borto said the company’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 firsthand how the products are manufactured and how they operate to stop tailgating. 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 United States, 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,” Price said. “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.”
