Atmore’s Tristan Gehman was featured in an international technology publication recently. The article is “Siemon’s OptiFuse™ Splice-On Connectors Save Time and Ease Installation for Alabama’s Poarch Band of Creek Indians.”
The article has to do with work done by G&H Systems of Atmore. Gehman is vice-president of the company founded by his dad, Jerry Gehman, who serves as president, and James Helton.
When the Poarch Band of Creek Indians recently developed a new Tribal Council Chamber and multi-story administration building as part of an expansion of facilities, G&H was there to provide needed technology.
The 17,000-square-foot Tribal Council Chamber features a state-of-the-art, 100-seat auditorium, new offices and a private conference area. Each floor of the three-story administration building encompasses approximately 24,000 square feet, with the third floor allocated for future growth.
According to the article, “The new facilities also feature the latest technology, from audiovisual, security and high-efficiency LED lighting systems and control, to a high-performance network infrastructure to support voice, data and Wi-Fi systems. To connect telecommunications spaces and end devices throughout both buildings, G&H Systems, a local Native American-owned and operated low-voltage systems integrator, utilized Siemon’s quality copper and fiber cabling and connectivity infrastructure solutions.
Tristan Gehman is quoted throughout the article.
“Siemon’s OptiFuse connector is really the best of both worlds. We get all the benefits of fusion splicing with significant time savings and a much cleaner implementation,” he said.
