History

For over 30 years, the VCS Companies have grown and expanded right along with Victoria to encompass Victoria Communications, VCS Security Systems, I.C.T., and Rocket Oilfield Services. Together, these companies provide Victoria and the surrounding communities everything from AT&T wireless phones and accessories, two-way radio systems, intercom systems, phone systems, security systems, and fire alarms, to fiber optics, and oilfield pipeline construction. That means the Hartman Family provides a wide range of products and services to both commercial and private customers. Each valued customer is treated with the philosophy that it's more important to give, than to receive. This philosophy is also shared by their knowledgeable and professional staff who greet each customer as they would a friend.

Almost 30 years ago, Victoria Communication Services opened its doors with a commitment to service and community involvement. Since opening the doors in 1985, Victoria Communication Services has expanded and opened the doors for VCS Security Systems, ICT and Rocket. A lot has changed over the years, but not the commitment first brought to the companies and that's what sets us apart. At the VCS Family of Companies, we believe in giving back and are committed to the community in which we live. We're proud to be actively involved and support many organizations throughout the crossroads area including:
