How we got our name

ACCES I/O Products, Inc.

"ACCES"? That's not spelled right!

Well, actually it's an acronym.

Way back in 1987 or so, several years before we became incorporated, ACCES had a different name: Acquisition Control Communication Engineering / Systems.

As you can imagine that's a little unwieldy, so we were putting ACCES on our letterhead.

In 1992 when we incorporated, we chose to make the acronym official, and call ourselves "ACCES" -- but that name is fairly common in other parts of the world, as it is the correct spelling of "access" in french, for example.

In order to distinguish ourselves from the mere word acces, our chosen name became "ACCES I/O Products, Inc."

Still a little unwieldy, isn't it? We call ourselves "ACCES I/O" for short.
