Beyond the Traditional Father’s Day Gift

How one Utah company can transform your Father’s Day and every day

Traditional neckties, power tools, grill accessories, sporting gear and the latest tech gadgets will always have their place on Father’s Day. This year, though, consider investing in something more—something techy, functional—and customized just for him.

For ideas, look no further than Mark Hicken of Hurricane-based Custom Installation and Design. Founded in 1993, this local business has been integrating home and technology systems to provide affordable home automation and customization that delivers luxury and convenience.

“It’s personally satisfying to help fulfill our client’s vision in designing and installing the latest smart home technology,” Mark mentions. “This includes home audio-video, security and lighting systems,” he adds.

Custom Installation and Design was an early entrant into the home automation and audio-visual services industry, and the company ranks as the most experienced audio-visual company in southern Utah. The company is licensed, and serves customers in Utah, Idaho, California, Nevada, Wyoming—and even the Aloha state!

Mark and his crew can help with anything from the small and simple to the high-end, from motorized window shades and lighting upgrades to a fully automated home or custom home-theater system. Their business approach is one of really getting to know each client, to know them personally and understand their needs and interests. Next, they align client input with the best and the latest technology to create the “dream solution,” as Mark calls it.

Before the team starts your project, they make sure you love what they have planned for you and your home. 

“Our goal is to provide customers with superior products and craftsmanship, then deliver the best possible, mind-blowing experience,” Mark says.

When the installation is complete, that’s not the end. Mark’s philosophy is all about friendship and dependability.

“We pride ourselves in the friendships we create with our clients, and our team will always be there to ensure 100% satisfaction and service.”

For your business needs, Mark’s team offers nearly three decades of commercial experience to help you with a range of office automation projects. Commonly requested services include structured wiring, networking, wireless signal boosting, conference room automation, video systems, background audio streaming, access control, security and surveillance systems.

Client Testimonial:

“In the past I have used other AV companies, but since working with Mark and Custom Installation Design, I have never looked back. The first project was my personal home. Mark and his team took the time to explain the options and were detailed and thorough in their installation. I have continued to use CID in my business developments. Furthermore, I have emulated Mark’s customer care and customer service in my business.”
