High Point Networks was created because we noticed that too many Technology Companies were focused on how much they could sell, and that didn’t seem right to us. We have always been more interested in solving problems. Know that if we train our team to focus on a result more than on a specific deal, we will be successful, and more importantly, our customers will be successful as a result. Helping others, building strong relationships and working together will always be stitched into our DNA.

Why We Are Different

You have many choices. This is why you choose us!

We firmly believe that our guiding principles are what makes us different than other IT providers

Principles Teamwork Icon


How does your company react when a team member has challenge? Do they stand by and watch or step in and help? At HPN, if a team member is “on fire” others jump in and help without hesitation. At some point, you will experience an unexpected issue. We want you to know that we will be there helping every step of the way.

Principles Security Icon


The safest place you should be is in your home. The second safest – your job. Team members at High Point Networks have the freedom to make decisions independently for the good of the customer and the company. They have the autonomy to bring forth new ideas, challenge the status quo and collaborate as a team. The same holds true in every project, service ticket, or discussion that takes place.

Principles Relationships Icon


We value the type of relationship we have with our co-workers and customers. It isn’t strictly transactional, it is much deeper. Our mission is simple – help organizations achieve their technology goals. We bring value by having a deep understanding of what our customers are trying to accomplish before products are discussed. It doesn’t matter what position or title you hold; every person at HPN understands that all relationships go far beyond selling widgets.

How It All Began

The History of High Point Networks.

High Point Networks was founded on November 1, 2003, by Tom McDougall and Justin Fetsch. Both knew their way around the technology industry and had built up the company they were working for – Applied Communications. The owner of Applied Communications was edging towards retirement, and Tom and Justin agreed this would be a good business opportunity and decided to take a leap of faith to begin writing their own story. That began the journey to creating the High Point Networks of today.  A lot has happened over the years, but we believe that HPN’s principles are directly linked to why we have become one of the region’s premier providers of information technology.
