Our company mission is to set the benchmark for cloud and technology services in our market, believing that a proactive approach enables us to stay ahead of the ever-evolving business climate our clients face each day
NetTech’s principals and staff offer a unique blend of business experience and technology expertise. We are a true technology company, working closely with our clients to develop successful, long term, and productive business-technology relationships.
NetTech was founded in August of 2004 by Tom Bullock, Robert Lovell, Andy Martin, and Ray Barnett, as a collaboration between four of the Monroe area’s most experienced IT and business professionals. Our goal was to change the typical customer/computer company relationship, focusing on structuring our company to best help our customers use technology to solve their business problems.
NetTech moved Monroe operations to our newly constructed office building at 1851 Hudson Circle.
After much deliberation and market study, NetTech began to transition our business and product offerings to more of a product-based structure. Realizing that cloud-based products were the future of the industry, we invested in a private cloud infrastructure that is the basis for our current product offering mixture.
2014 saw our company grow yet again, when we merged business operations with Infinet Technologies. Chris Nadler, a highly respected and experienced IT professional, joined the ownership group. The Infinet merger expanded our Managed and Professional services offerings.
In 2017, NetTech and Business Technology Group (BTG) of Ruston, LA, merged operations, creating the largest private IT Services firm in Northeast Louisiana and adding a host of Voice and Communication services to our product offerings. Aaron Paul, Tim Soto, and Cody Davis, highly respected and experienced IT professionals based in Ruston, joined the ownership group.
