Why Work Here?

Family atmosphere, lots of growth, and fast-paced environment!

Our History Providing complete systems integration since 1990. It started with his passion for electronics. In 1990, Joseph Thomas, a graduate of the University of South Carolina's Master electrical engineering program, and our current Chief Executive Officer, turned his knowledge, experience and love for technology into a viable business - A3 Communications. Joe continued to build A3 into the substantial business operation that it is today, with sales in 2015 exceeding $35 million. Only years after opening, A3 Communications services expanded from software development to data networking and security. Shortly after, the company realized that the voice and data worlds were set to merge, so we became early adopters of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). In 2001, A3's fiber and cabling division was formed to provide total infrastructure solutions. In 2008, we launched the physical security division (surveillance and access control) and quickly became market leaders, serving primarily the K-12 market throughout the Southeast. In 2014, following the acquisition of the Charlotte, NC branch of a west-coast based electrical contractor, A3 further expanded into electrical services. Today, A3 is considered an all-inclusive communications, electrical and Information Technology (IT) service provider able to accomplish every aspect of a technology infrastructure. Since 1990, A3 has provided our clients with competitively priced IT and communications solutions including: Enterprise Networking Physical Security Unified Communications Voice, Data & Fiber Cabling Audio/Visual Hosted & Managed Services Electrical Services Since the beginning, it has been our goal to increase the profitability and productivity of our clients through the application of smart technology. From our headquarters in Columbia and additional offices in Greenville and Charleston, South Carolina, as well as Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina and Atlanta and Milledgeville, Georgia, we have served over 2,500 clients across the Southeast. A3's comprehensive service and innovative solutions have been internationally recognized. Still involved with the company today, Joe named his son, Brian Thomas, as A3's President in 2012. His role with the team began as Vice President of Sales starting in 2006, and Brian continues to grow the company in his new position, always making sure to keep the company vision in mind. Under Brian's leadership, A3 was recognized in April of 2017 as one of America’s fastest growing systems integrators for the fifth consecutive year. A3 Communications has built a reputation on quality service and products for over 25 years and continues to be a leading systems integrator for the Southeast. We're committed to using "best of breed" technology as the criteria for the products we offer, and provide a single source solution for the region's technology needs.
