About Us

Sterling Technology Solutions was founded in 2003 by our CEO, Tom Blanchard, to help small to medium-sized businesses manage their technology.  While 2003 is the year we were founded, the true roots of our company began in 1946 when our CEO’s grandfather, Gordon Kellogg, founded a mom & pop hardware store in a small community in eastern North Carolina.  That company was eventually taken over by our CEO’s father.  Our CEO was essentially raised in a local community hardware store.  He learned firsthand from this father and grandfather the importance of true customer service.  In a small town community where everyone knows everyone, customer service was foundation on which that hardware store was built.  We strive to bring small town customer service to the big cities of Charlotte, NC & Raleigh, NC.  Our goal is to show our customers that we’re not really in the technology business, we’re in the customer service business, but happen to know a lot about technology. 

Following a stint in Washington DC working as a network administrator, our CEO founded Sterling Technology Solutions in Charlotte, NC in 2003. Our very humble beginnings started with just one client and grew steadily year after year by putting the customer first. Growing one client at a time, we were able to help more and more businesses in Charlotte, NC manage their technology services. As we learned more and more about how to help larger businesses manage their IT by offering cost-effective technology solutions, we began taking on larger clients in Charlotte, NC while also adding clients in different areas of the state and country.

In 2017, we continued our growth by acquiring a competitor, also based in Charlotte, NC. We added their employees, customers & product offerings to our existing infrastructure. This allowed us to increase our ability to service larger clients in various parts of the country. We were also able to offer new product lines to our existing customers, allowing us to make the management of their technology even easier and more effective.

Today, our team helps small to medium-sized businesses manage their technology by offering affordable technology solutions while maintaining our core values of bringing small town customer service to the big city.
