About Us

Trusted by 3,000 Happy Customers Since 2005

In 2004, a business plan was written to refurbish, market, sell, and support high end “Thinly Traded” IT Storage equipment in the B2B market. On January 1, 2005, a website was launched, eBay ads were posted, and Emergent Systems Exchange (ESX) was started in a couple of bedrooms in Edina, MN.

ESX’s original mission was saving business customers thousands of dollars on expensive IT storage equipment from numerous manufacturers. Over the years we have experienced a tremendous amount of change and growth expanding in to six business segments supported by our ESX IT Services (EIS) group. However, our commitment to quality and customer service has never wavered.

This is who we are and how we’d like the world to see us. Basing our decisions and behaviors on these values contributes to ESX’s growth, financial strength, and overall success, now and into the future.

Value never goes out of style. It’s always important and even more so during uncertain economic times. We’re not a big bureaucracy, so every customer is important to us. Large or small, you’ll always get our best people at an affordable price.

ESX was created to save businesses thousands of dollars on expensive IT storage. We began in Minneapolis, Minnesota, selling refurbished IT hardware and maintenance plans. Since then, over 3,000 companies worldwide have trusted ESX to provide the right IT solution at the lowest possible price.

Over the years we’ve evolved and expanded into other IT business areas. Through it all, our vision of building long term relationships has never changed. It means we have to earn your trust. Every. Single. Day.
