A history of recognizing opportunities and reinventing ourselves to build profitable businesses.

InVue is one of the few companies that has consistently spotted emerging market trends and then reinvented itself to take advantage of the next emerging market opportunity. Building a strong leadership position capable of supplying products to new markets while proactively recognizing when these businesses begin to shift and start to mature is a hallmark of our success.

Over the last 42 years InVue, previously Alpha Enterprises, Inc., has built its leadership position with innovative products for the video rental and video production business, retail music chains, the home office segment, products that secure high theft sell-thru merchandise for global retailers and most recently becoming the leader in protecting mobile electronics devices that are on retail display in over 70 countries.

This unique track record has been accomplished by hiring great people, aggressively investing profits back into the business and having the courage to disrupt our business even when things were going well.
