KCI Inc Celebrates 30th Anniversary

KCI, Inc., the global information technology connectivity company, announced that today will mark the 30th anniversary of the company’s inception.

The company is a strategic supplier of maintenance, engineering and hardware to some of the largest financial institutions, manufacturing concerns and government agencies in the country. Established in 1982 the company maintains Brocade®, Cisco®, McData®, QLogic, IBM®, Telenex®, InRange, Telenex® and Computerm infrastructure switching products along with EMC®, NetApp®, HDS and Oracle storage. KCI, Inc. offers its customers hardware along with full legacy maintenance support for aging IT infrastructure at vastly reduced prices. Through a network of field support offices and test labs, KCI, Inc. supports over 3000 machines at over 350 locations across the country.

KCI, Inc. earned its reputation as switching specialist as far back as 1982 when it began selling and maintaining bus and tag switching equipment manufactured by IBM®, Tbar and Data Switch; in the 1990s the company’s specialization expanded to IBM® ESCON directors and other ESCON products at one point selling over 300 ESCON directors in a single year; and finally, over the last dozen years the KCI name has become synonymous with Fibre Channel switching.

Jeff Klein President and Founder said, “We have reached this plateau by staying focused on our core business and delivering the highest quality IT equipment and top notch professional services to our clients, while keeping our eye on the real concerns of our customers.”

Frank Krause, Director of Field Support and 22 year veteran said, “At KCI, Inc. 24 x 7 means 24 x 7.  Sometimes it feels like we never stop working just like the machines we support.”

Wayne Duglin, Executive Vice President and 25 year veteran said, “Paying attention to all the details is often a thankless job but today all of us at KCI, Inc. can take a lot of pride in the many small jobs done right that we’ve strung together over the course of 30 years.” 

Over 50 of the top 200 companies in the country depend on the KCI, Inc. field support team for maintenance, network design, data center consolidations, back-up & disaster recovery, configuration management as well as for additional hardware and standard maintenance support.     

KCI, Inc. soon plans to expand its legacy support coverage by adding Ethernet Networks and high-speed large scale chassis-based switches on July 1, 2012.
