About Us


Years in Business


Closed Tickets


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.
