Parallel History

Parallel Technologies, formerly "P&T Communications," was founded in Robbinsdale, Minnesota by Mr. Poston and Mr. Thorgrimson. The two budding entrepreneurs started this voice and data cabling business out of their garage. Yes, the company was named after its co-owners, despite a rumor that "P & T" stood for "pull and tug" cabling.


The company's early logo (left) depicted the owner's idea of our cabling services branching out into IP technologies that are carried over the wire.  


After purchasing the company in 2005, its logo was subtly updated (right) by new owner, Dale Klein. While the logo's change was small, Klein's vision behind it was big--and remains to this day; to embrace the coming convergence of software driven infrastructures over one network.
