Together, we deliver exceptional maintenance support + exceptional customer service
SEI: Our Story
Since 1986, SEI has been delivering on-site hardware maintenance for mission critical servers. We started as a division of a local IT hardware reseller in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before splitting off and incorporating.
From one office, one account executive and two engineers – SEI offered customers an alternative to DEC service. Two plus decades later, our expertise has grown and we have expanded our data center supported products to include IBM, HP, Sun, Dell and ProLiant servers, along with EMC, STK, NetApp, Cisco and Hitachi storage equipment.
As a third-party maintenance provider, SEI also provides additional service solutions including: Hardware System Solutions, Sales & Upgrades, OS Support, Virtualization and Data Center Relocations.
With the demands of growth and the drive for quality control, SEI opened a central warehouse and training facility in Grand Rapids in 2009. The SEI Distribution & Training Center holds over 90,000 parts and has 11,000 sq.ft. of training and lab area with a variety of equipment for engineer training and production testing.
Today, SEI maintains servers and storage in data centers for hospitals, manufacturing plants, universities, banks, Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, government agencies and other mid to large companies from 35 offices in sixteen states.
Every year, SEI expands coverage territory and supported products to reach more customers with our brand of exceptional customer service and technical support.
For thirty years, we have been maintaining and repairing data center servers and storage equipment, improving our service delivery and continually exceeding our customers’ expectations.
By combining a proactive approach to better service and better solutions, SEI creates long-term partnerships with customers based on mutual respect, trust and loyalty.
It’s evident from our customer feedback – investing in employees and processes delivers better results.
In an industry where only 42% of IT professionals rate themselves as promoters of the companies who they do business with, an unprecedented 80 score for Service Express shows how much our customers believe in SEI to provide them the best service possible.
We have built our company by hiring the right people, meeting each customer’s needs, working hard and having tons of fun. Great results for customers and SEI alike!
Our promise is to “work with our employees to help them achieve their personal, professional and financial goals.” Our employees drive our excellence and our growth.
