Team KB heads to the mountains……

Brad and Jeremy recently returned from a foray into Colorado, working on our national install for Russell Stover’s candies.  Kenton Brothers was called in by the box candy giant to help with access control in their manufacturing and distribution centers located across 8 different states.  The company needed quicker access for their employees during shift changes, and the ability to control everything from company headquarters here in Kansas City.

We came through with optical turnstiles from Alvarado and S2 Enterprise level software management.   This state of the art, secure, bi-directional turnstile access control responds within 1/1000 second to credentials and uses ‘stacking’ capabilities during high user intervals.  This technology allows a user to present his or her credential (card), to walk through the gate, and  keeps the gate open for the next user to pass through; thereby eliminating the slow-down which occurs when the gates close after each individual user.

Add in S2’s Enterprise software, and you have a custom system with global site management all controlled and administered from their company’s headquarters.  Innovative thinking for an age old business still using small batch production to maintain the original quality of Russell and Clara Stover’s bungalow candies.   For innovative solutions to your access control challenges, whether you have one location or you cover the nation, contact Kenton Brothers in Kansas City at or 888-536-8661.

Oh…..enjoy the pictures sent from the mountains, and feel free to read the full case study on Russell Stover’s candies!
