OUR HISTORY

From start-up to industry leader

In 1997, RYCOM boldly began as a disruptor – determined to leave its mark on the Canadian commercial networking and consumer electronics sectors. With an agreement from Motorola US in hand, Casey Witkowicz – founder, President and CEO of RYCOM – set out to convince big Canadian enterprises to continue buying their mission critical infrastructure equipment from an emerging start-up.

Over the past 20 years, RYCOM has expanded across the country, with offices in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton; it serves a variety of small, mid and enterprise market customers throughout North America and was recognized as one of Canada’s Top 50 Best Managed companies. Our 20 years of industry-leading experience led us to another watershed moment in 2017 – the launch of HIVE. Today, we are recognized as industry thought leaders and innovators. Not too bad for a feisty start-up – eh?
