IRVINE, Calif., July 12, 2004 – HID, the premier manufacturer of contactless access control cards and readers for the security industry, today announced that it has received Professional Security Installer (PSI) Magazine's 2004 Access Control Manufacturer Premier Award recognizing service to the United Kingdom's security industry.

In its fourth year and hosted annually by PSI Magazine, the Premier Awards brings together the publication's readers including security installers, manufacturers and end users to select and honor outstanding security product manufacturers in recognition for their exceptional customer service. This coveted award is regarded as one of the most prestigious in the industry because companies receiving the award are both nominated and voted for by the publication's professional security installers.
