The vision of Tucker Auto-Mation group of companies is to control manufacturing with distribution in key geographical markets. Tucker Auto-Mation supplies all types of swinging, sliding, folding and revolving automatic doors, using its distribution sales channels for applications that include airports, supermarkets, convenience stores, hotels, office buildings etc.

Patrick Mercier is the founder and former CEO of B.E.A. Inc., a manufacturer of motion and presence sensors for automatic doors. He became Entrepreneur of the Year in 2000 in the High Technology field and BEA was ranked # 280 as one of the fastest growing companies in 1995 across ALL industries in the USA (905% over 5 years). His engineering skills, paired with his creative marketing strategies, allowed him to build a strong reputation in the automatic door industry around the world. B.E.A., Inc. sales in the USA far outpaced his European counterparts and he became CEO of the worldwide operations, instrumental in opening up the Tokyo and Beijing sales and manufacturing offices. Patrick, and his partners, sold the company in 2002, after developing the USA/Canada market for 15 years. He left in 2004 with a commanding market share. Today, B.E.A has become synonymous of top quality, most innovative technology to detect people and known for its total customer centric attitudes. B.E.A. products are now specified all across North America.

Armed with his knowledge of the market, the industry, the product, and most importantly, the people associated with the door business, Tucker Auto-Mation hired the best and most experienced team and is now challenging its competition by creating a brand new door paradigm! Counting people, providing security cameras and opening doors safely with the most state of the art technology puts the Tucker Auto-Mation door in the category of a "SMART" door.

Architects will receive positively the news of his forward thinking ideas to integrate security cameras, traffic counting into the same door that can be monitored from any remote location.

Tucker Auto-Mation is, by far, the most customer centric organization in the entire door industry, and the caliber of staff hired is a testimony of that philosophy. Customers, end users and distributors will, once again, be pampered as they should be.
