JE Systems History

The year was 1964, fifty one years ago when our company, Arko Telephone and Communications was founded in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Our company was a Manufacturer's Representative for General Electric Company, Mobile Communications Division.

In September of 1991, Arko Telephone of Fort Smith changed its name to Arko Communications and then, in 1995 due to our growth and the fact that we were now extending our services into other outlying communities, we had chosen to change our name to Clear Communications, Inc.

Mr. Jimmy Eakle worked for Arko Communications from 1991-1994 before starting his own company in August 1994.

On August 27, 2003 JE Systems Inc. is formed. Mrs. Melanie Eakle immediately assumed the office of Chief Executive Officer and Mr. Jimmy Eakle as President. The company moved into the corporate office it still occupies today.

In 2004 JE Systems purchased Western Arkansas Telecom Systems and Clear Communications, Inc. In 2005 JE Systems opens its first office in Little Rock Arkansas and Tulsa Oklahoma.

Lastly JE Systems purchased Powers of Arkansas, Security and Fire Division, of Little Rock, AR in 2008 and Mid-South Security Systems of Fayetteville, AR in 2010, further expanding the company’s territory.

Sadly in 2009 we lost Jimmy Eakle and Melanie Eakle also assumed the role as President continuing his vision and leading the company into the future.

Today JE Systems has offices in Fort Smith, Fayetteville, and Little Rock Arkansas as well as Tulsa Oklahoma. JE Systems is licensed in the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, and Missouri.

The History of the company is undeniably a strong and reputable presence throughout the community. Built on a solid foundation JE Systems continues its pattern of providing unparalleled service with a deep commitment to all our clients. We take pride in our unsurpassed reputation. In installation, neatness, prompt service and service after the sale, the references we receive from our clients have not changed.  With offices in Fort Smith, Fayetteville, and Little Rock Arkansas and Tulsa Oklahoma we are readily available to service and meet the needs of our present and future clients.

On March 6, 2015 JE Systems was accepted into the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Certified program.
