One thing remains constant, our core competencies, values and investment in our people.
As a family-owned company with deep roots in the community, Pulse Technology makes sure to take the time to give back to local businesses and charities. In 2012, the “Buy Local, Give Local” initiative began which increases awareness for the need to support local charities and businesses.
All products purchased from Pulse Technology qualify for the “Buy Local, Give Local” program. Since the initiative started, over $100,000.00 has been donated to various local charities that strive to improve the quality of life in our communities. Many of these donations were matched by grants or other contributors which nearly doubled the given amount.
Everyone at Pulse Technology is truly grateful for the opportunity to service our client’s office needs, as well as allow local dollars spent to have a direct impact on our citizens in need. Our “Buy Local, Give Local” program spotlights a local non-profit organization each month. The goal is to create awareness to all of the fantastic local organizations that work hard to assist members of our community.
