About Us

July 26, 1989 – Standby Systems, Inc. opened the doors for business.  At that time, the company employed two people, a service technician and an office employee, and was operating from home.

Jump to the present – Standby Systems has its own home and has a few more employees.  We are a locally owned small business.  As a small business, we can offer a more individualized service with our customers.  This enables us to meet their needs more accurately, and in some cases establish a bond.  

We are certain this is one reason we have been successful. We have a large customer base in the state of Virginia, and in the northern part of North Carolina.


We are members of the following:

Swam – Swam is a state program and the purpose is to enhance procurement opportunities and participate in state-funded projects.

EVA – EVA is a Virginia procurement marketplace where all of the state agencies, colleges, and universities as well as local government, post bidding opportunities for goods and services.

Ariba – Ariba is a marketplace where buyers and suppliers can find each other and do business within a single, networked platform.
