Who We Are (History)

Midwest Electronic Systems (Midwest Electronics) was founded by Ralf Nosic in 1993 in Columbia, Missouri. Ralf had previously been employed as a "systems" sales representative by ADT from 1984 to 1987, and by Simplex from 1987 to 1993. Distributorships were immediately set up with Gamewell, FCI, Bosch, Bogen, Crest Electronics, Identicard, and a number of other manufacturers. The customer base grew rapidly in Central Missouri with customers such as the following:

-          State of Missouri

-          Columbia Public Schools

-          The University of Missouri

-          Fulton State Hospital

-          Missouri Highway Patrol

-          Department of Elementary and Secondary Education

-          Lincoln University

-          AT Still University

-          NE Regional Medical Center

We purchased our current Forum Blvd. facility in Columbia, Missouri in 2001.  In 2004, Midwest Electronics purchased Missouri Fire, a Gamewell-FCI distributor in the St. Louis area. In 2010 we purchased a building on Gravois Ave. in St. Louis to better serve the St. Louis market. St. Louis customers include the following:

-          Lumiere Casino/Four Seasons Hotel

-          University Club Tower

-          Scott Air Force Base

-          Missouri School for the Blind

-          Lindenwood University

We have a staff of NICET certified technicians at both locations along with a project management staff, service management department, design staff, electrical contractor sales staff, and an end user/service sales department.  In the past years, Midwest Electronics has won the Gamewell-FCI "President's Award" / "Partnership Award" twelve times (2001, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017).  This award has been given to us for the top sales performance within the North Central Region of the United States.
