CONNECTING LOCAL BUSINESSES WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT
With the financial and technical assistance from NCIC, Secured Network Services, Inc. (SNS) converted a vacant building in the industrial park in Littleton, NH into a state-of-the-art data center in the Spring of 2012. SNS brought new high tech employment opportunities to the area and is now providing information technology (IT) support to area residents and businesses. SNS helps make businesses safe, fast, and connected through its technology and consulting services (including help desk, server and network management, support, technology planning, 24/7 monitoring, disaster recovery, data center, and security services). NCIC partnered with the Littleton Industrial Development Corporation (LIDC), the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED), and the Town of Littleton to help SNS, headquartered in Massachusetts, establish its second office and data center in New Hampshire. This is an example of NCIC’s Innovation North approach, which provides tailored lending solutions that are based on the company’s capabilities, opportunities, schedule, and needs. NCIC continues to assist SNS in expanding its business throughout New England. SNS is providing critical IT services that many companies in this region require. Since opening the facility, SNS has seen a substantial growth in business, and now serves as the in-house IT department for organizations such as NCIC and AHEAD Inc. (Littleton).
