A brief history
Linked Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1997 by James Mahoney and Christopher Plainte after evaluation
of the Mid-Michigan market. The two owners determined that at the time there was a lack of professional
information technology consultancy firms in the area. The focus of Mr. Mahoney and Mr. Plainte was to
develop a financially solvent professional service firm.
In 2001, Linked Technologies, Inc. relocated their offices from a small, two-room facility on James Savage
Road in Midland, MI to a large office suite capable of sustaining continued growth on North Saginaw Road
in Midland, MI.
In 2006, after observing changes within the industry, Linked Technologies, Inc. began investing in VMware
education and training for Senior Network Engineers. This foray into server virtualization has proven to
be a successful strategy for Linked Technologies, Inc. as businesses of all sizes are now adopting and
deploying server virtualization technologies.
Recognizing a need in the market, in 2007, Linked Technologies, Inc. launched a new service offering:
the completely outsourced data center. Through the use of VMware ESX, IBM System-X technologies and
Microsoft Terminal Services, Linked Technologies, Inc. provides complete environmental management for
customers wishing to remove the burden of on-site information technology.
15 years later, Linked Technologies follows the principles that James and Chris set forth. Whether
you need a new installation or an upgrade to existing network equipment, our professional and
qualified staff will always follow best business practices and supply the highest quality equipment.
We don’t differentiate clients based on how much money they’re spending for our services. Every
client is treated with the same level of care and attention.
