We’re a creative group of technology enthusiasts with a common interest: finding innovative ways to streamline hardware delivery and make it easier for our customers to do their job.
A HARDWARE COMPANY THAT INNOVATES LIKE A SOFTWARE COMPANY
For about a quarter of a century, MBX has singularly focused on hardware delivery. Our roots took hold in the ‘90s when our founder Tom Crowley found a niche with a mail-order business selling hard drives, motherboards, and other commodity hardware. Back then, people ordered components advertised in trade magazines by telephone, and the way our company differentiated itself was by providing a high-touch customer experience.
Over the years we progressively expanded from components to complex hardware solutions, and our customers have shifted from tech enthusiasts to global tech powerhouses. Throughout our growth, we’ve stayed true to our singular focus, kept that high-touch approach, and notched up our capabilities with seasoned hardware and software experts and a range of services designed to streamline hardware delivery.
As a group, MBX is passionate about giving back to the community and helping organizations on a mission to enrich the lives of others. We see firsthand that when employees are given the opportunity to engage with charitable organizations it enriches their own lives, too. It was from these ideals that the MBX Cares philanthropy program launched in 2014. One of our employee perks is giving each full-time employee a paid day off annually to volunteer at an organization of their choice. We also organize volunteer opportunities for groups of volunteers, which is a great way for coworkers to connect when they don’t cross paths every day.
MBX Cares group volunteer days frequently provide helpers to organizations that rely on the community to support their mission. Some of these non-profits include Habitat for Humanity, Lambs Farm, Partners For Progress, Lake County Forest Preserve, Bernie’s Book Bank, Feed My Starving Children, PADS Lake County, and many more. MBX also sponsors participation in fundraising outings such as Race to Wrigley, Rugged Maniac, MS Walk, and more.

If you’re looking to advance your career in a dynamic, fun, and rapidly expanding company with a lot of opportunity for growth, you’re in the right place.

Some would say the evidence of a great company is on its trophy shelves, with accolades like innovation, leadership, quality, and operational excellence. But to be a great workplace, that’s based on the opinions of its employees. While we’ve collected all the above-mentioned trophies and more, what we’re most proud of is that our employees consistently vote MBX as a great workplace.
