the legacy

 

At the age of sixteen Robert Loya Ozuna moved with his widowed mother, two sisters and a brother still in the womb to the desolate town of Miami Arizona. The small mining town had little promise for this young family.

Soon after the move, the young Ozuna enlisted in the US Army, where he honorably served two terms. Within a few short years of the end of his service he was hard at work in the electronics field, while taking classes at night to further his education.

 

CCP Begins: In 1966, Robert Ozuna first opened the doors of his business, working out of his home in Whittier, CA. Within the year business was progressing well enough to open a small shop in nearby Santa Fe Springs, CA. He named the business, Custom Control Panels or CCP.

CCP began working closely with Honeywell Corp. packaging recorder and control indicators for food and chemical applications.

Around 1970, the company expanded its client base to large engineering and construction firms such as RM Parsons, Flour, Jacobs and Braun Engineering. Eventual projects included power plants, the Alaska pipeline and off-shore platforms, among many more.

 

NBP Begins  

With advice from friends and advisors CCP was now in the process of becoming a corporation.  Unfortunately the name was taken by a firm in Saint Louis Missouri.  With time of the essence the search begin for a new corporate identity.  After months of searching a small company based in New Bedford Massachusetts was found and the corporation was for sale.  The company made bed pans for hospital use (the butt of many jokes).  Needless to say the name was quickly changed to New Bedford Panoramex Corp. (another joke in itself), or NBP.

 

 

8(a) Certification

With major economic turmoil in the energy industry, CCP/NBP began the process of diversifying itself into a federal contractor and became 8(a) certified. One of the first contracts was with the Department of Transportation’s U.S. Coast Guard. Soon after, with an extremely aggressive marketing campaign and a few new staffers the core team began, the year was 1984
