I have mentioned in this space before that I have the opportunity to travel a lot and that this has afforded me an excellent view into how airports are run. But my perspective is not limited to their inner workings. In fact, from my office here in Montreal, I can see the O6L and 24R runways at the P.E. Trudeau airport. This means that, every once in a while, I get to watch these feats of engineering and technology move through the air. And I am reminded of the incredible precision required to get so many planes safely through take-off and landing every day. At the same time, I also know that any disruption on the airfield —no matter how small— can delay flights or threaten security.

Coming from a generation of Schonzeits who specialize in ID badging and security, I have seen the industry go through many changes over the years. Security is part of my DNA and I’m excited to share my knowledge with the marketplace and help create a safer world. In 1943, my grandfather Hyman Schonzeit founded Identification Service Corp. in the heart of New York City as a manufacturer of laminated credentials and safety tags. With its own design staff, printing presses, and lamination equipment he quickly grew the business by winning large corporate and governmental contracts that included providing the War Department with ID cards. Now, Idesco has become a leader in ID badging solutions.
