Our founder, Anita Messerschmidt, started Embark from the safety and security of her kitchen table in 2005. Anita envisioned and created safe and dependable solutions for IT hardware, software, and repairs for printers, desktops, and notebooks. Over the next few years, Embark added White Glove services: etching, enrolling, imaging, deployment of desktops, notebooks, and Chromebooks. We grew to become a Microsoft Gold Partner, providing infrastructure products and support to businesses and organizations of all sizes.

Soon we saw the need to expand our services to create a safer community through safer business. Data protection, physical security protection, and managing valuable assets have become the core of our business. Embark is the solution for facilities of all sizes for physical security, such as security cameras, intrusion detection, and access control/ PACS. Embark is your wireless solution for access points and controllers.

Embark innovates your business and engages audiences with audiovisual technical design and implementation. Including uncomplicated, easy-to-manage digital signage, conference and board rooms, state of the art classrooms, auditorium sound systems, and business collaboration space solutions. We help you interact with clarity to reach your target audience.

We work hard to provide a safe physical and digital environment for you as you embark on your journey. We have and will continue to be your go-to source for forward thinking solutions for your infrastructure, audio visual, and security needs. We remain committed as your proactive partner managing the critical technologies that run your organization. Making your life better through better technology, Embark is your partner on the journey.
