Velocity Micro's history begins in 1992 when Randy Copeland, an entrepreneur and avid techie, began designing and producing high performance computer systems to run CAD software and other demanding applications. These computer systems were custom built to facilitate the design process and tailored to the needs of each client. Velocity Micro was officially founded in 1997 as an extension of this highly individualized, high-performance computing philosophy.
The company's first reviews in 2002 from major industry journals catalyzed the huge growth Velocity Micro experienced in the following year. Since that first review, Velocity Micro has won over 50 major awards and has been featured in publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Wired Magazine, CNET, PC Magazine, The New York Post, and CBSNews.com.
Velocity Micro now competes on a national level with a full product line that includes PCs, notebooks, and peripherals. Velocity Micro products have been sold at nearly every major electronics retailer in North America including Best Buy, Circuit City, RadioShack, Costco, Sears, Target, and many others.
