A WORLDWIDE LEADER IN SAFETY
It started in 1942, in the wake of a World War—American Signal Corporation (ASC) made a pledge to the world to provide first alert and early warning technologies, to ultimately save lives. Our air raid sirens and speaker arrays were the first step to creating a safer world and today, while our technologies have certainly evolved, our mission has stayed the same.
ASC has been an industry leader in mass notification since the beginning. Our air raid sirens paved the way for giant voice systems, which heralded digital alerts and today’s integrated systems. We’ve seen the evolving need for innovation in our industry and have been influencers in how these technologies have developed over time.
American Signal Corporation (ASC) is a leading designer and manufacturer of mass notification solutions for a wide variety of applications worldwide. Thanks to our innovative engineering, tailored approach to unique implementations and penchant for thoroughness and quality, our systems meet and exceed the demands of critical applications:
- Our systems are deployed throughout Thailand and other coastal and island nations as tsunami early warning systems.
- More than 70 percent of United States nuclear power plants are equipped with ASC emergency notification systems.
- Our solutions are currently installed in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and many other locations as a means for civil defense.
- Around the globe, ASC emergency mass notification systems are ready to alert millions of people to emergent and critical non-emergency information.
We are the standard for mass notification systems and we set the bar for safety, no matter the application.
