How it All Started
Stratix opened its doors in 1983, long before anyone envisioned a world driven by mobility. Its roots are founded in mobile as supply chain consultants with a vision to help businesses capitalize on technology to streamline their operations and increase productivity. As mobile technology advanced, Stratix became the largest reseller of purpose-built mobile devices. The frequent release of innovative mobile technology and tools fueled our growth. The company continually adapted its business model to ensure it could always meet and exceed the mobility needs of clients. Along the way, Stratix created key partnerships, expanded its capabilities, and added high-value enterprise managed mobility services.
Today, Stratix is the largest U.S. pure-play managed mobile service provider, a trusted, long-term advisor for leading Fortune 500 brands – many of whom have been with it since the beginning. For over 35 years, the company has built that trust by delivering consistency – staying ahead of the market, evolving its services and pushing the limits to exceed expectations.
