Brief History

We are celebrating more than 20 years in business! We were established in 1994. Thank you for your support.

In the Beginning

It all started in July, 1993, at a family reunion in Toronto, Canada. We decided to work for each other and to build a company of quality and honor.

PC Depot Inc. incorporated February 1st, 1994, in Miami, Florida. Gus, Harry, and Carlos got together and delivered the first computer for Mr. Joe Baile, in Coral Springs, Florida.

Our initial mission was to deliver affordable computers to homes and small businesses. We have evolved into a full featured Help Desk and Information Technology Company. Our investment guaranteed program allowed customers that bought early adoption systems to upgrade to higher-class systems as their technology needs grew and the systems became faster and more affordable. This successful philosophy was expanded to our business customers. These loyal customers have seen their savings add up year after year. And we do not leave strings attached. Open systems and no-nonsense contracts are the key to our success.

And after 23 successful years, we still keep that same open architecture philosophy. And as we’ve grown, we’ve kept touch with our roots.

Our customer base has grown with many businesses in Florida, including a growing list of non-profit organizations. We are very proud to support these organizations. We believe in serving our communities by helping these groups of dedicated people excel in their technology needs. These are organizations dedicated to help the children, the hungry, and the less fortunate members of our state of Florida. And we are their affordable, always there when they need us, Information Technology department.
