Our company was founded in 2002 and after a year of exhaustive research and development produced the first doors in January of 2003. The company was formed as an LLC with 3 members. Their combined experience brings a unique perspective to the glass door industry.
Tim Karnes owned a company providing complete turn key refrigeration packages to the retail public. His company provided sales and installation of walk in boxes, glass doors and refrigeration systems. He also worked as a regional manager for Ardco and Kysor Panel Systems before becoming a part of the management team of Commercial Display Systems LLC. His primary duties are National and International Sales and Marketing.
Duane Beswick was employed by Anthony International as their General Manager until he decided there was a better way to manufacture glass doors. In 1989 he left Anthony to become the founder of DisplayRite a competitive glass door company. His vision for the glass door industry thrived until the eventual sale of DisplayRite to Anthony his original employer. His desire to provide the retail public with a high quality competitive glass door company led him to join the Commercial Display Systems management team. His primary duties are National and International Sales and Product Development.
Fernando Calderon was employed by Anthony International as an engineer responsible for product development for 14 years. Working as an engineer for Anthony he was responsible for the development of many of the products that are still in use today. Becoming part of the management team of Commercial Display Systems allowed him to follow his ambition to create a glass door line of unequaled quality and dependability. His primary duties are Mexico Sales, Engineering to include product development and Plant Management.
The entire staff of Commercial Display Systems has an extensive background in the glass door manufacturing industry. Most of them worked for either DisplayRite or one of the other competitors. Their extensive knowledge of the glass door manufacturing process and their passion for providing our customers with quality products are the defining elements that make Commercial Display Systems the successful company that it is.
The number one goal of the entire management team and staff of Commercial Display Systems LLC is to provide the level of service our customers deserve. We believe that service before, during and after the sale is the path to a satisfied customer and a relationship that will last throughout the years.
