2022 was another banner sales year for TekTone while focusing on workplace culture and more community involvement.

We started off the year strong with launching our redesigned website. The website was re-worked to be more user friendly and provide our customers with resources to best serve our target markets. The redesign included improved page speed, animated TekTone History timeline and new enhanced features of our portfolio.

Also, during the first of the year we celebrated three of our employees reaching 30 years of employment at TekTone and one employee reaching 25 years of employment at TekTone.

Throughout the 2022 year we had several accomplishments:

We participated more in Community Involvement by inviting Franklin High School students on a tour of our facility, participating in local Career Fairs, and took part in STEAM events for middle school students in Macon and Jackson Counties. 

  • We held a “Pink Out Day” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. We were able to raise money as well as make donation to Macon County Public Health for the 2nd year in a row.
  • During the holiday season we held a food drive for CareNet in Macon County and were able to donate over 180 pounds of food. During the annual Cold for a Cause campaign, TekTone supported with a monetary donation to help those in need.

We were awarded the Silver Safety Award from the North Carolina Department of Labor in 2022. The Silver Safety Award was given to TekTone for outstanding safety and health efforts for the 2021 calendar year.  

For the 2nd year in a row, TekTone was nominated for Coolest Thing Made in NC Contest. This contest celebrates the North Carolina manufacturing community, in which we made it to the 2nd round of voting. 

To keep up with product demand, more space was created and technology added on the production floor. We also hired a new sales representative to serve the Western Region to meet this demand. We now have a total of five outside sales representatives for the United States.

We formed a Quality Improvement Committee engaging TekTone Elite Partners (TEPs)in a Quality & Improvement Conference. 

We gained 18 new distributors and 28 new TEPs, for a total of 344 TekTone Elite Partners.

Thank you for being a part of this special year, we appreciate your partnership and look forward to what the 2023 year holds!

A family-owned business committed to providing quality intercommunication solutions at competitive prices, supported by conscientious customer service, for the Health CareResidential, and Commercial markets.

Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are health care facilities that offer patients the convenience of having surgeries and procedures performed safely outside the hospital setting. This trend in healthcare is a growing new market and TekTone has designed our systems to offer valuable nurse and emergency call capabilities to ASC patients.

ASC

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), also known as Life Plan Communities, are designed for seniors who are currently living independently, but want the safety and security of being cared for as they age without having to relocate. As a resident’s health declines, he or she may transition from an independent living residence to assisted living, to an intermediate or skilled nursing facility—all on one campus. TekTone offers systems specialized in adapting to the changing needs of CCRCs, while keeping resident’s safety and security a top priority.

CCRC

A skilled nursing facility (nursing home, convalescent home, care home or rest home) provides a place of residence for those who require continuous nursing attention. Services available in skilled nursing facilities include assistance of nurses, nursing aides and assistants; physical, occupational and speech therapists; social workers, recreational assistants; and living space. In some instances, residents may reside in skilled nursing facilities to receive rehabilitation or other therapy following an illness or accident.

SKILLED NURSING

Assisted living / independent living facilities usually have a campus-wide call system so a resident can notify caregivers by initiating a call from a personal pendant or emergency button press/pull. The systems specified for these types of facilities are usually referred to as emergency call systems or personal emergency response systems. Call system requirements in assisted/independent living vary, but may be mandatory in some states. Assisted living facilities may prefer a combination of Tek-CARE wireless and wired technology, with pull-cord stations, call buttons and wireless pendants to ensure staff members are notified efficiently and quickly.

ASSISTED LIVING

Nurse call systems for hospitals, microhospitals and cancer centers must offer more than the ability for a patient to call for a nurse. These systems are now about total solutions to improving facility performance. Performance is identified as improving efficiency in terms of facility goals (rounding, reducing time to answer calls, tracking staff performance using metrics), improving staff satisfaction, and improving patient satisfaction.

HEALTHCARE

The Tek-CARE platform provides customizable communication solutions for all types of healthcare facilities. TekTone’s wired and wireless nurse call systems provide flexible features and integrations to assist staff members in providing the greatest care for residents. In addition to the safety and security provided by the nurse call system, TekTone also offers the Tek-CARE Wander Management system to help keep at risk residents away from harm and Fall Detection and Monitoring offering peace of mind for caregivers, residents, and their loved ones. With the Alert Integration Manager, these systems can be integrated to display calls at one convenient location, as well as provide customized management reports. Along with reporting, the Tek-CARE Staff App can be used to notify staff on-the-go using iOS or Android devices or display monitors using Tek-CARE TV.

 

COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL

TekTone’s roots lie in the manufacturing and design of apartment entry systems. With multiple station options, custom engraved panels and retrofit capabilities, Tek-ENTRY apartment systems provide a convenient and reliable communication path for residents. Also available is the Tek-SAFE Area of Rescue Assistance System for areas out-of-reach of communication in the event of an emergency.
