SHAKOPEE, Minn. — Aug. 14, 2012 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Founded in 1992 by John Demskie out of a one-room apartment in Minnesota, RTI has grown from humble beginnings into a world-leading control system manufacturer known for introducing affordable control products that offer the state-of-the-art features and functionality often reserved for higher priced solutions.
Over the last 20 years, RTI has made its mark on the control and automation industry with a number of award-winning solutions, including its renowned handheld touchpanels, in-wall controllers, and advanced central processors.
