About Newport County Computers

Our Mission: Provide our clients with quality computer solutions so they may benefit from their investment in technology.

Our parent company, ATC Tech, was established in 2002 near Newport, Rhode Island. Our original focus was on the Southern New England region. As our customer base grew, we found ourselves supporting clients throughout the US as well as their satellite locations overseas. Newport County Computers opened its doors in 2011 to give clients and local residents a place to bring their systems for maintenance, cleanups, repairs, and other assorted services.

Client satisfaction is our key to success, which we work hard to achieve and maintain every day. Unlike other technology providers, we don’t recommend cookie-cutter solutions to make things easier for ourselves. Instead, we take the time to listen to our clients, understand their technical needs, and provide targeted solutions that help them get the most out of their technology investments. We provide technical consulting, project management, implementation and post-implementation services along with complete system lifecycle support using the same high-tech solutions and best practices usually reserved for larger companies.

With a reputation for honesty and professionalism, Newport County Computers specializes in providing technology solutions, services, and support for small and medium-sized businesses. Choose Newport County Computers. Experience exceptional service and affordable technical solutions. Newport County Computers is a Service-Disabled Veteran Minority Owned IT firm with over 30 years of combined industry experience.
