Later his knowledge of computer and networking systems was applied to the engineering trades. Mr. King spent much time integrating computer-aided design and computer aided manufacturing systems for customers such as, FMC, M&M Mars Candy, Mitsubishi, Yale Lock, and Heritage Log Homes. In 1989 Mr. King moved home to Gatlinburg, TN, and provided computer-based reservations systems and retail Point of Sale solutions to the hospitality industry. His involvement with hotel and motel automation led him to build Infofast in 1993 to provide direct mail marketing support for these same customers.
