As a Native American owned company, DECO has the distinction to be considered one of the elite minority‐owned firms in the United States. DECO has extensive experience in providing security services to a variety of federal and private agencies worldwide.
Robert A. Dorr, the CEO of DECO, Inc. organized the company in 1986 as a primary installer of security systems and electrical construction services. Prior to this endeavor, Mr. Dorr was an active duty security specialist with the United States Air Force National Guard for six (6) years followed by 12 years of experience in the installation of security and electrical systems.
Consequently, “Dorr Electric Company” was created in 1986 to extend these 18 years of experience to a wide spectrum of tribal, private, state, and federal agencies. Prominent clients during this time included a number of installations for the United States Air Force including the Grand Forks Air Force Base and the 934th Airlift Wing, the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe reservation, the State of Minnesota and Blue Cross Blue Shield. In 1998, “Dorr Electric Company” became known as DECO, Inc., and was organized as a corporation under the Minnesota Secretary of State Laws. During this same year, DECO was encouraged to begin providing armed security services to our clients. The name DECO was adopted to enable our corporation to market its capabilities independently from one another.
