Press Release: Kelser Corporation Named to CRN's Solution Provider 500 List of Top IT Solution Providers
Hartford, CT – Kelser Corporation has been named to CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list for the first time. The list, formerly the VAR500, is CRN’s annual ranking of the top integrators, service providers and IT consultants in North America, ranked by their solution-provider services revenue. 2013 marks the first appearance on the list for Kelser, an accomplishment that marks the growth and success Kelser has realized in the past few years.
“I am extremely pleased and honored with the recognition,” Kelser President and CEO Barry Kelly related. “Being named to CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list was definitely a goal for Kelser. It comes as a bit of a surprise to be ranked so high in our first year but it comes as no surprise that we made it. We have a first class staff that is second to none! Also, our network of best of breed vendors and suppliers has enabled us to be the premier solution provider in our region.”
Since re-organizing and expanding in 2010, Kelser has grown into a world-class IT professional services systems integration organization, expanding far beyond the region of East Hartford, the location of their CT headquarters. In the last few years, they have experienced consistent annual growth of 30%. The company has achieved much since starting as a consulting organization in 1981.
Kelser has provided IT supply chain life cycle services for enterprise customers in New England for most of its existence. Reacting to industry and client requirements, an IT professional services organization was developed offering leading edge virtualization, cloud services, networking, security, IT strategy consulting and more. Within this period, the company expanded, implementing renovations to its facilities and systems and additions to its engineering staff. These advancements included upgrades to their own IT infrastructure, office re-organization, expansion and the addition of a technology demo center for clients. These changes helped propel Kelser’s growth forward, and added Kelser to the list of the top IT solution providers.
Kelser’s company culture reflects their history and dedication, both to business and the community. While committed to satisfaction, quality and the overall customer experience, Kelser considers their employees to be their greatest assets. Frequent employee events create an environment where staff can collaborate, unwind and socialize. Employees enjoy generous benefits as well, including insurance, 401K, wellness memberships, and much more, putting employee satisfaction at an all-time high.
The company also promotes a philosophy of philanthropy, with the Kelser Foundation consistently giving back to the community. The Foundation supports many charities with man-power and financial assistance, highlighted by the company’s annual charity golf tournament which benefits the American Lung Association.
Kelser has earned its place among the top IT solution providers. They are indeed living up to their tagline, “Excellence in I.T.”
