About Us
Incorporated in 1971, Artel Communications entered the New York City construction industry and primarily focused on the Health Care installation market. Since its beginnings, Artel has branched out to develop and specialize in communications systems in the fields of education, transit, and industry.

In 1994, Claude Ruimy, having had fifteen years of expertise in engineering and management, joined the company as executive Vice President. Following the founder's retirement from the industry in 1996, Claude acquired the company and became the President of Artel Communications. In 2004, Artel joined Local #3 IBEW to expand and strengthen its technical staff.

Today, with thirty-eight years of expertise, Artel focuses its core business in the public sector providing sophisticated systems to NYCSCA Schools, NYCDEP water treatment plants, NYC Transit facilities, and to many other demanding commercial and industrial markets. Specializing in integrated A/V systems, telecommunications, fiber optics networks and security systems, Artel Communications continues to serve the New York metropolitan construction industry with a commitment to quality and service.
