After being discriminated against and harassed at other IT firms, Dawn, our CEO, finally had enough. She formed 3rd Element with Dave, our COO. 3rd Element was created in 2005, as a subsidiary of a local physical security group. As more physical security was going to IT based products, security installers and the facilities folks didn’t know how to interface with IT. We as IT experts, became the 3rd element in all of the security projects. In just under a year, we became our own corporation, moved into our own offices, and hired employees.
In the last decade we have moved three times, landing in Old Town Mechanicsburg. The oldest residence there came up for sale, and we bought it. We took what was once a dry goods store, then a mansion house as it was added on to and turned it into a high tech office. In the last year, we’ve won a number of industry awards, doubled in size and are poised to do so again by end of 2020.Get Started
