Happy Anniversary, Trident Communications, Inc! With 21 years behind, hopefully, the best is yet to come. Here is the story of how we came to be.

With two small children, it seems like there is always sickness. In mid-November 1994 one of our three-year-old twins contracted chicken pox and we knew that it was only a matter of time until the other one came down with them. Kevin and I couldn’t take any more time off from our jobs, as I had been reprimanded a few months prior for missing too much work, primarily due to the kids’ illnesses. We called Kevin’s mother and she agreed to come for a visit and stay with them. We bought a round-trip plane ticket from Tampa to Charleston for her arrival shortly before Thanksgiving, then returning home two weeks later.

We were happy that we had a solution to the immediate problem, but then the unthinkable happened. On November 30th, Kevin received his pay check in the morning, took it to the bank in the afternoon, and to his surprise, the bank would not cash it due to insufficient funds. Interestingly, others who cashed their checks earlier in the day got their money. He went back to the bank over the next several days yielding the same result. We still have the uncashed check today! Kevin continued to work on the promise that they would make things right by the next pay day.

Unfortunately, there was nothing on the next payday. Kevin decided that the company’s troubles were bigger than not making payroll and his concern focused on the local customers whose service was affected by the company’s actions. As customers called, he took care of them not letting on that there was a problem. We recognized the potential to bill the customers for the work Kevin was doing, but legally, they weren’t our customers. On Friday, December 23rd there was an announcement that the company filed bankruptcy. The realization hit us that we needed a business to serve the displaced customers as our own. On December 29, 1994, we filed the documentation with the State of South Carolina to officially become Trident Communications, Inc.
