Northwest Computer Repair now part of the Second Time Around Computers Family

Combined company expands services throughout Whatcom County

Bellingham, WA December 1, 2015:

Second Time Around Computers is pleased to announce that Northwest Computer Repair has joined the Second Time Around Computers Family.

This merger represents the pooling of expertise from two major computer repair and service firms in Whatcom County. The joined companies will maximize the services available at each firm, touching each area of computer repair, sales, network services, and more.

Northwest Computer Repair has been a leader of computer and network services for many years in Whatcom County.  Their customer-centric approach to dealing with their clientele has set them apart from most others.  The company also specializes in POS software and systems servicing Fortune 500 fast food chains.

Landin Fusman, President of Northwest Computer Repair stated; I am so encouraged that we can be a part of the Second Time Around Computers Family. The combined forces of our specialized technicians and the support of Second Time Around Computers stores and unique services will be an enormous asset to our customers and will make the combined company a force to be reckoned with locally.”

Second Time Around Computers (a Division of Safe and Easy Recycling, Inc.) is a local small business success story. The company currently boasts over 10,500 customers and employs over 20 people in four locations. Second Time Around Computers specializes in complex Apple and Windows computer and laptop repair, small business networking, computer parts and data recovery amongst many other services. Their retail stores also offer economical refurbished laptops and computers under the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Program. The company is the local “go-to” business for tough repairs deemed unfixable by traditional big box store technicians.

Said Robert Pratt, President of Second Time Around Computers; “Northwest Computer Repair has always shared the same values we have in putting customers first.  We have a great history of working together and the combining of our pool of talents can only benefit both companies. We are excited to announce significant changes to our service offerings and expand our already growing small business network services division. This is just one more step toward creating service outlets in small regional locations throughout Whatcom County to serve our customers better.”

The combined companies will focus on expanding an already well rounded array of services.  The companies will offer affordable systems to small businesses, network support, and repair at extremely competitive rates.  The retail stores offer quality refurbished computers, laptops and repair for value-seeking families or those on a budget. Northwest Computer Repair located at 805 E. North Street in Bellingham will now begin carrying refurbished computers and supplies like the other Second Time Around Computers locations in Lynden and Bellingham.
