DR4001103-E6 FrontOur founder, Kurt Rawlings has been in the networking industry since 1987.

From 1987 – 2000 Kurt was the Co-Owner and VP of sales and marketing at Computer Recyclers in Utah.

Computer Recyclers was a pioneer in it’s day to start the Ecycling movement.

After several years and many lessons learned, Kurt Rawlings founded Network Outfitters in 2000 because he saw an increased opportunity to provide better value and better service than the market was currently offering.

And it’s working. Our business has grown year over year. That’s because we treat our customers the way we’d want to be treated. Our customers, in turn, have rewarded us through their repeat business and referrals.

We’re able to do what we do because the market for networking equipment is unique. For one thing, pre-owned and refurbished equipment represents an enormous cost savings compared to new, and it is generally unavailable from the manufacturers or their VARS. Not only are we able to provide a lower cost alternative, we can do so without the typical lead times and with much stronger warranty programs than buying direct.

Also, the market for this equipment is fragmented. It can be difficult, time-consuming and often impossible for systems integrators, IT consultants, network architects, government or education network support professionals, and end users to locate needed hardware, let alone a reputable supplier.

ft-logoThat’s where we come in. Through our many combined years in the industry, we’ve developed an extensive source network for pre-owned, refurbished and new networking equipment. Our products are thoroughly tested, backed by an industry leading warranty, and, more importantly, you’ll always know where to find us after the sale. Why spend days or weeks tracking down the hardware you need and gamble on the quality and reliability of the equipment and the vendor? Chances are we have it in stock or can source it for immediate shipment. And we’ll guarantee the quality, and get it to you at a much better price than you could find on your own.

Finally, we understand the importance of network continuity and realize that downtime is simply not acceptable. We’ve made it our mission to place our customers’ needs first. Our automated processing enables us to expedite orders tailored specifically to your delivery requirements. We process final invoices and provide tracking information before you ever have a chance to wonder about the status of your order. In this dynamic business, your needs can change in an instant. Our talented and intuitive staff is ready and willing to adapt on the fly to ensure you’re satisfied with the products and the service you receive from us.

Though our company has grown over the years, we’re still here every day, ensuring that our sales staff delivers the high standard of customer service we established ourselves from day one. And even though we have fancy job titles on our business cards now, we’re not above personally taking phone orders or sending out quotes. At Network Outfitters, customer service is part of everyone’s job description.
