The company started in a four-wall storefront in 1995 in suburban Chicago selling computer components to consumers from a catalog. We were wildly successful, even winning awards because people liked doing business with us. From there we expanded into building complete computing systems, and we kept growing and moving and expanding, until finally in 2012, we landed in Libertyville, IL, in a 120,000 square foot facility only about a half-hour east of where we started.While we don't build computers for consumers anymore, two things haven't changed: hardware still runs through our veins and people still like doing business with us.

We operate a manufacturing and logistics facility in the EU MBX Netherlands and stocking, logistics, and support services around the globe.We've won around 20 awards within the last decade for the kinds of things that our customers and employees value most: operational excellence, impeccable quality, a great company culture, maintaining a top workplace, and providing a world-class customer experience.Want to hear what our employees say? https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?v=SSSDEl74w98MBX is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace and is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE), including disability/vets
