Meet Williams Electronics

Harlan "Bill" Kriete Founder and Donna Kriete Co-Founder

Bill graduated from Tri-State University (now Trine University) in 1974 and started his career as an electrical engineer and project manager at a local communications company. In his many site visits with that company, he saw an emerging need for quality security systems within healthcare, educational, industrial, and government facilities. Bill formed Williams Electronics in 1985 with corporate offices in Angola, Indiana.

Bill accepted nothing less than excellence in sales, installation, and customer service. He loved to get his hands dirty and thought nothing of showing up on a job site to check the work or help finish a project.
