  • The Company

    Established in 1988, Advanced Composite Structures (ACS) is a world leader in Rotor Blade / Composite Structure repair technologies for fixed-wing and rotary wing aircraft. The company’s long-lasting success can be attributed to a comprehensive research and development program – allowing them to maintain high service quality and fast turnaround times. Their motto, Sound-Solid-Solutions, reflects a core belief in providing lasting solutions for their customers.


  • The Requirement

    Like many small businesses, ACS was working with an old network. An unsupported server operating system, inconsistent backups, and discontinued firewall left the company exposed to significant risks concerning security and data protection. ACS knew that an investment in their technology would be necessary to support the continued growth of their business.



The Results

ACS entered into a 365Care+ agreement, engaging 365 as their outsourced IT department.

365 Technologies implemented an entirely new Dell environment, with a PowerEdge R510 server and a new fleet of Dell Optiplex workstations. With Windows Small Business Server 2011, and migration to Microsoft Exchange for Email, this busy company benefits from a best-in-class comprehensive solution for file management, email, and collaboration. A SonicWall TZ200 TotalSecure Firewall was deployed to ensure the protection of the internal network, and security of company data.

With an updated network environment, revamped database, and support from 365 Technologies, ACS is ready for the next chapter of their company’s growth.
