In 1988, what began as a one-time project led to a realization by Bob Pruitt, owner of Data Center Equipment & Support (DCES), that there could be many opportunities to help data center managers not only liquidate retired equipment and move data centers from one location to another but to also retrofit aging equipment or find new and surplus equipment. In pursuing this opportunity, Bob realized that he had a gift to assist corporate management as a troubleshooter, equipment expeditor, and project manager for installing or uninstalling equipment. Referrals quickly led to new business and a multi-million-dollar company was created.
Under the name of DP Support and, later, Sure Companies, Bob created various companies to administer specialized needs for data center managers: air conditioning, gensets, power distribution equipment, installation, and de-installation, even acting as a second opinion for the purchasing manager to ensure that the right equipment at the right price was being purchased. He then began recruiting engineers, technicians, and administrators to help oversee the support services that he was providing to data center managers. It became a “niche service” offering that proved to be successful and effective. Referrals continued as did repeat business.

We know what lies underneath a data center floor and the equipment manufacturers that are best suited to keep a data center from crashing.
