Tech Group is one of Vermont's premier IT service companies, providing hands on care to its broad customer base throughout the State of Vermont. Tech Group recently celebrated its twelfth year in business in October. Owner Steve Loyer has worked hard to grow the business while also honoring its founding principle: "The Human Side of IT". In other words, in this rapidly changing world of information technology, Tech Group believes one must still abide by the basic human principal of personal touch, open communication, and hands on care for its customers. From our perspective maintaining strong human interaction and positive relationships while the continued advancement in IT inadvertently pushes us apart is paramount for our team at Tech Group. We strive to establish, maintain, and honor the relationships with our customers, says Tech Group's President Steve Loyer, "its' what it's all about".

Tech Group's history goes back to the mid-eighties during the origins of business computing and IT services in Burlington, VT. Many refer to this timeframe as the "McAuliffe days". There, many of the pioneers of todays' locally owned IT service companies started their careers as did founding partner Steve Loyer. Steve left McAuliffe and formed Computer Services of Vermont (CSV) with his brother Tom. Fast forward to October of 2006, some twenty years later, and Tech Group was founded when Steve and best friend and business partner Jay Fayette purchased CSV and changed the name to Tech Group, Inc.

Tech Group serves over 450 businesses statewide with its talented team of IT professionals with network design and consultation, cyber security consultation, equipment sales, and a vast array of managed service offerings ranging from remote help desk support, PCI/DSS compliance services, managed antivirus protection, patch management, mobile device management, to name several, to its very own "Vermont Cloud" data restoration back-up and hosting platform. The Vermont Cloud is housed within the state of the art Tech Vault data center located in South Burlington.

Tech Group is growing, recently we opened the doors to our new office and network operations center (NOC), expanding our facility by 50 percent. Our new operation now comprises of approximately 5,000 SF of office and technical space and is ideally located at the corners of Gregory Drive and Kimball Avenue, smack in the middle of South Burlington's Technology Park. Tech Group currently has eighteen employees and will soon be adding new faces and names to its team. Since inception some twelve years ago Tech Group has seen a 400 percent growth in its annual revenues and a 300 percent increase in its customer base. All the while never wavering from its founding principal and mantra 'The Human Side of IT". Tech Group is The Human Side of IT.
