Our Founders

Carl H. Dubac, David L. Shumaker, and Sidney S. Cox, the three founders of DCS, made a dedicated commitment at its inception to technical excellence and employee empowerment.

In 1977, these founders pledged to build a company that would attract smart, inventive people to address technical problems and provide products and services that would positively impact the well-being of our nation. To this day, one of the founders, Carl Dubac (Chairman Emeritus), still stands before our employees to teach the founding core values of being an employee-oriented company, offering quality services with integrity and honor. By 1986, DCS was able to establish an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) to enable all employees to experience the pride of ownership.

From that small beginning, DCS has emerged as a respected mid-tier company and a recognized leading services provider in our market space. With approximately 1100 employee owners committed to growth and prosperity, DCS is a company of dedicated and innovative people solving complex problems with a focus on quality products and service.   DCS’s commitment to the highest levels of ethics, integrity and excellence is of central importance in all that we do.
