Your local office tech solution
Founders Lea and Cam McBurnie opened in Geelong in 1991 as a computer retail store at 15 Mercer Street.
The business grew and they purchased their first building at 86 Mercer Street in 1998, and renovated it extensively in 2000 to allow for further growth of the company.
“In the early days, the idea was to create a business with great home PC products in Geelong to stop people having to go to Melbourne,” they said.
As the need shifted to offering local business computer support, they grew in that space and in 2011 Xtreme Technology took over the long-standing Geelong company, Jennings Computers.
One year later they then purchased Coopers Copiers and rebranded as Xtreme Technology in light of their business offering more products and services to their customers than their initial IT offering.
Lea and Cam purchased the company’s present home at 15 Baxter Street, North Geelong in 2017 and began the first stage of renovations on the site.
Stage 2 began last year with the building of nine self-contained warehouses to allow future growth of the company and also for technology partners to join them on site.
A major milestone was achieved this year with the securing of appropriate permits to allow the building of a digital sign on the building’s Melbourne Road facing wall.
This will allow the business and their partners to advertise their offerings and also Xtreme Technology plan to donate space to its many local charity partners.
Xtreme Technology markets its products towards small businesses with between two and 550 employees who wants data protection, no-fuss managed print, local service and great products.
They are the first in market to offer a no contract managed print offering combining managed print in the IT services billing with no fixed term.
“The most important thing we do currently is we assist in providing data protection for our clients in the face of growing data breaches globally,” Lea and Cam said.
They applauded the chamber for its active presence in the Geelong business community.
“We think the biggest thing for any small business is being able to meet with other businesses and share ideas and experiences and Chamber with After 5’s and other offerings allows for this.
“Xtreme wish the Chamber a happy birthday and acknowledge the great work over the 170 years supporting Geelong business.”
