Advantage Technology began with Richard Wilbur III providing IT consulting from a spare bedroom in early 2000. After working for several consumer-driven IT businesses directly out of college, he saw an opportunity to provide groundbreaking, enterprise-quality IT solutions to the business community. He quickly hired staff and moved to a small office complex in downtown Charleston, WV. It wasn’t long before that facility was too small and Advantage Technology moved to 814 Quarrier street where it remained for over a decade.
In those years, Advantage Technology grew to provide many IT service, from help desk support to telecommunications and even datacenter design and installation. With the expanded services came expanded staff and the need for more physical space. So, it 2016, the company moved to 915 Kanawha Blvd E, where it is headquartered today.
To better respond to needs outside of the Charleston area, Advantage Technology opened a new office in West Virginia’s eastern panhandle in 2016, today operating out of Williamsport, MD. And in 2020, it expanded further with a central West Virginia office in Bridgeport.
For over 20 years now, Advantage Technology has been providing IT services and solutions for companies in West Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, along with clients in Canada.
Because they have over 80 technicians, they can specialize in emerging areas of information technology and have dedicated resources to specific disciplines, rather than merely being computer generalists. Their focus and innovation enable them to support over 800 companies and continue to expand into cutting edge areas of information technology.
