COMTECH Audio Theater Security began in April of 2002 out of the home and garage of Oli and Melanie Tripp. Oli started Comtech to earn extra income while attending Montana State University Billings. At the start, COMTECH’s products included home security and central vacuum systems. Listening to his customer’s needs, Oli soon realized a need for a company that offered more.

Billings Needed Low Voltage Systems

Since that time, COMTECH has grown to offer wiring, installation and integration of just about any low voltage system, including security, cameras, audio, video, automation, lighting, thermostats, networking, access control and more. Oli and Melanie’s company was truly the first company in Billings to offer a complete menu of low voltage systems.

In 2007, Oli and Melanie built a showroom and 7000sf building of Shiloh/Zoo exit turning a page for their small business. Today, Oli’s one-man shop  is busy company of 12+ employees serving all of Montana, northern Wyoming and the Dakotas with a growing annual sales figure of over $1,100,000.
