DES History & Values
As a child, Bob Dagostino's mom would take him to the Buhl Planetarium on Pittsburgh's North Side. Bob would imagine a future filled with technological innovation. After graduating from Connelly Trade School, Bob started his career in structured cabling. But the dream was always about what that cabling powers up. What it connects to and what it brings to life. From structured cabling, Bob expanded the business to include networks and voice, steadily expanding to surveillance systems and multimedia. Now spanning five business units, DES is a full-service technology integrator, with the ability to construct customized solutions for your technology applications.
But we're still not done. As technology becomes ever more connected, we're continuously exploring new frontiers of technology integration. From AI to Li-Fi, our goal is to deploy technology to enhance the human experience.
A Pittsburgh native, BobD - as we like to call him - is guided by his Pittsburgh values. Down-to-earth while striving for excellence and valuing innovation. DES prides itself on its signature attention to detail, extending from ideation to installation and post-job support. Our industry specialists, engineers and project managers have worked locally and nationally in the education, healthcare, government and commercial sectors.
DES is a proud member of:
AIA • BICSI • BOMA • IEEE • IEE • IBEW • NECA
DES is the preferred technology provider of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
