Professional IT Services


Formally KBB Development Company 1989 - 1998, PC-iNet was incorporated in Oregon to better serve it's customers in 1998.  With the availability of custom configured PC's direct from large manufactures, we recognized that a new direction was needed.

PCiNet began specializing in custom software, quality control applications for engineered wood products companies and installation of Microsoft workstation / network operating systems.  The company became a member partner with Microsoft to be able to receive pre-product training / testing, be part of product licensing and launch programs.

In March of 2006, PC-iNet changed its organizational structure slightly and simplified it's name to PCiNet.

Still involved with small to medium sized companies, PCiNet took on an additional role to provide professional IT services to small city government and local public safety agencies.
