We feel incredibly blessed to celebrate our 40th anniversary at Jasco. From humble beginnings, Founder and Chairman of the Board, Steve Trice, started Jasco Products in 1975 and guided the organization from marketing CB antennas and accessories out of a small corner of an Oklahoma City warehouse into one of the largest and fastest-growing marketers of consumer electronics, home automation, lighting, security, home entertainment, power and mobility products. The road hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been worth traveling. Forty years later, we lead our industry with cutting-edge products marketed under some of the best brands in the world including GE, Disney, and TUMI.

We are hosting an open house for the local community to commemorate the company’s anniversary and milestones over the past 40 years and proudly debut our newly renovated corporate headquarters located at 10 E. Memorial Road in Oklahoma City. The Jasco 40th anniversary open house will take place on Monday June 22 from 4-7 p.m. Todd Lamb, Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor, will be joining in the celebration and speaking at 5:45 p.m. along with founder, Steve Trice and CEOs, Jason and Cameron Trice.

“Our newly renovated headquarters provides the tools that make the future possible," says Jason Trice, Jasco’s CO-CEO. “We are honored to invite our family and friends of the community to this special event for an evening of fun and fellowship followed by a guided tour of our state-of-the-art facilities.”
