Petronella Computers, Inc. was founded in August 2002 by Craig Petronella to provide a full featured computer and network service to small and medium sized businesses. I started the business to address the problem of poor hardware quality, which led to reoccurring repair/fix and loss of productivity to local Raleigh small business owners.
We see that while most businesses need IT assets, these skills are not part of their core business model. We believe that our clients should focus on what they do best, which is not managing computers or IT projects.
Petronella Computers , Inc. started out just selling custom built hardware built on the reliable Intel platform. We have expanded services to include network design, network support, server migrations, server upgrades, firewall and security solutions, disaster recovery solutions, hardware and software sales. Petronella Computer Consultants, Inc. excels at the adding personal touch with professional and personal attention to all customer encounters.
The company continues to grow and expand, but we have remained 100% customer focused. Even as we have added new technology, customer satisfaction is at an all-time high. We’re more responsive than ever, and customers rave about us to their friends and colleagues.
