Vehicle Management System VMS Key Control Systems

VMS Key Control Systems

VMS Key Storage and its patented design began development in 2001 in conjunction with, what was at that time, one of the nation's larger publically traded engineering firms.

The initial few years of system design contemplated a drawer design but was later abandoned by the engineering form after legal review of competitive drawer system patents. This was a real project setback that saw the engineering firm exit the alliance in 2003. This resulted in the project being put on hold for a year until the engineering firms CEO and several key engineers retired and the project got back on track with a new design.

In 2005 prototypes were in stores in Texas which moved to pre-production units in 2007. At this point patents were filed on the system and associated hardware. Several years of patents pending resulted in 2011 with the US Patent office finally issuing patents.

In 2012 the company was approached for hundreds of units of interest but decided to further test and develop its software and establish U.S. component suppliers to mitigate reliance on foreign suppliers. This action took approximately three (3) year to create a more efficient supply chain for a contemplated national product launch. In 2016 the company began consolidation of it assembly operations only supplying units in Michigan as it looks to launch nationally in 2017.
