About The Company
Made with pride in North Carolina: Copyright © 2013 Multi Technical Services Inc.
Multi-Technical Services was founded in 1984 by Lyn Williams and Gary Pleasant to provide custom product design and small
lot manufacturing services for several electronic companies in North Carolina's Research Triangle Park.
Lyn and Gary both came from ITT Mackay where Lyn was the R&D Laboratory Manager and Gary was one of the mechanical
designers. Both had been with ITT for about ten years.
Lyn was responsible for product design and manufacturing, while Gary was responsible for mechanical design and
documentation. Gary retired from MTS in 1992, while Lyn continues to be active in product design and testing.
Some of the early projects included manufacturing the emergency run down system for GE's MRI with A.B. Andrews and
Company, and the development of solid-state audio recorder/player systems for Digital Recorders, Inc., for use in airport shuttle
buses, school buses, and Traveler's Information Stations.
In 1986, MTS began developing a line of broadcast equipment under the MTS Communication Products Division label. The first
three-channel EBS encoder/decoder included weather radio integration, continuous self-test, and end-of-message signaling,
and location information. This system set new standards for EBS that can be seen in the newer EAS equipment requirements.
In 1993 Skip White joined the company as a Software Engineer. Skip worked in Radio Broadcasting for 28 years. He spent 13
years as a combination announcer, "morning man" and engineer, and then left the air and spent 15 years as Chief Engineer.
The MTS broadcast product line now includes NOAA Receivers, Distribution Amplifiers, and several more specialty items.
Commercial products include TIS transmitting systems, networked digital audio work stations, and the on-air program audio
console for NOAA Weather Radio.
MTS's EAS Encoder II software for generating EAS messages anywhere, right from your Windows PC, became the standard for
EAS message origination over a decade ago.
MTS produces other products including the Emergency Alert Radio or EAR, which is available in two models that are identical
except for the frequencies covered. The Weather EAR receives NOAA weather radio frequencies and the FM EAR receives
standard FM broadcast stations. These units are suitable for Home, Business, School, or Industrial applications and have
features found only in the broadcast equipment class of products.
